Arsenal, Tottenham ‘most interested’ in €35m rated winger

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are among the clubs “most interested” in signing Juventus winger Dejan Kulusevski, according to reports.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with the attacker in recent weeks. He is said to be valued at around €35m.

Juventus signed the Sweden international last year from Atalanta for a fee that could rise to €44m.

Every Premier League club’s best moment of 2021

Kulusevski was a key player last term as he was involved in 14 goals from his 47 appearances.

This campaign has been different though as he has only started four times in Serie A.

Italian outlet Leggo (as relayed by Sport Witness) are reporting that Arsenal and Spurs are among the teams “most interested” in the winger.

They add that the player “remains on the market” so a January switch to the Premier League is on the cards.

Arsenal were in action on Wednesday night as they beat West Ham United 2-0 at the Emirates.

Speaking after the game, Mikel Arteta suggested that this was a “statement” victory:

“Really pleased with the performance, the quality, the energy, the passion and the crowd,” the Arsenal manager told BT Sport.

“We had some really good moments. It was a really difficult team to play against. They have a lot of solutions and are a threat in many, many ways. I think we controlled them pretty well so credit to the boys.

“It was a great first goal. That’s what Gabriel [Martinelli] can do. He is always a threat and this pace is really good for him to exploit.

“The second one was good on the counter-attack. It’s a shame we miss a penalty in that moment as it would have given us more time to relax because you can’t against this team. They can score a goal in any action.

“It was a big game for us to obviously have the capacity to go above them and move fourth. It was a statement.

“We had been pretty strong at home so we needed to put a good performance in against a good team and I think we did that.”

On the Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang saga, Arteta added: “They were fully focused. They wanted to show how strong we are as a team. The performance, the attitude and the commitment they showed today is exactly what we are as a club.

“I expect it from every player – to stick to our values. We will talk about that another day. Today I want to talk about the game.”
