Napoli keen to land Tottenham winger Dejan Kulusevski

Napoli‘s pursuit of Dejan Kulusevski has placed Tottenham on high alert as the summer transfer window looms large.

Hailing from Sweden, with roots tracing back to Ohrid, Macedonia, Kulusevski has represented various Swedish youth squads and even turned out for Macedonia’s under-17 national team. His international record stands at 37 appearances for Sweden, with three goals to his name.

Speculation has been rife linking former Tottenham manager Antonio Conte with the vacant managerial position at Napoli. This development adds another layer of intrigue to the situation, as Conte’s potential arrival could potentially facilitate Kulusevski’s switch to Naples.

Kulusevski’s familiarity with Serie A is noteworthy, having plied his trade for approximately four years across stints at Atalanta, Parma, and Juventus.
