Cristiano Ronaldo is a big fan of Juventus forward Dejan Kulusevski, who is reportedly on Tottenham’s radar for the upcoming January transfer window. Kulusevski was signed by Spurs director of football Fabio Paratici at Juve and could be on his way to north London in 202, according to reports in Italy.
Spurs brought in Bryan Gil, Pierluigi Gollini, Emerson Royal and Cristian Romero over the summer as Paratici made his presence felt behind the scenes.
But it seems Paratici is already looking at the mid-season transfer window and plotting other ways to improve Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad.
According to Tuttosport that has led him to raid his former club for Kulusevski, who has endured a mixed start to the season under Max Allegri.
Juventus are prepared to sell the 21-year-old winger in the January transfer window, should a good enough bid come along.
Kulusevski has made just one start in Serie A this season and has just one assist in nine appearances altogether.

The Swedish international joined Juve permanently from Atalanta for around £29million (€35m) in January 2020 and is on a contract until 2025.
Paratici is not the only fan of Kulusevski who is now in the Premier League, however, because former Juventus striker Ronaldo has also lavished praise on the youngster.
“He is a great talent,” Ronaldo said earlier this year before leaving Turin for Manchester United.
“He will help us to win and achieve incredible things. I really like to see him, he has a great potential, and he’s an excellent player.
“I hope to play with him and score a lot of goals together.”

The feeling was definitely mutual, given what Kulusevski said following Ronaldo’s departure to Old Trafford
“It was a lot of fun to play with him,” he said. “He’s a fantastic player and human being, but now that he’s gone I don’t think about it anymore.”
Juventus have recovered from their poor start to the season following Ronaldo’s departure.
Three successive wins in Serie A has brought them up to seventh in the table, while they have also won both of their Champions League matches so far this season under Allegri.
While he is not getting much game time for his club, Kulusevski remains a key player for his country.
He played the full 90 minutes in Sweden’s 3-0 win over Kosovo on Saturday and will be involved again in their World Cup qualifier against Greece on Tuesday evening.
