Tottenham and Arsenal are both battling it out to sign Juventus winger Dejan Kulusevski, according to La Stampa.
The 21-year-old has struggled for game time with the Bianconeri this term and could find himself heading towards the exit at the Allianz Stadium.
Reports claim Juventus would be prepared to sell Kulusevski in the January transfer window, but only for a fee in the region of €35 million (£29.4m).
North London pair Tottenham and Arsenal are said to be keeping tabs on the Sweden international, but it is the former who would hold the cards in a potential move thanks to Fabio Paratici.
La Stampa report the Spurs director of football, who initially signed Kulusevski for Juventus during his stint with the Serie A side, is now keeping tabs on developments and could shape up a move worth £29 million to bring him to the Premier League this winter.
The report also states that Juventus could be heavily tempted to sell the Swede in January as a makeweight to finance a transfer for 22-year-old Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca.
Kulusevski has been limited in terms of minutes this season, which has seen him yield just one goal and three assists in 21 appearances.

This doesn’t seem like a bad asking price for Kulusevski, who is still very young and will likely have a lot of room to grow. Obviously, it doesn’t help that he hasn’t been playing much, but it could be a decent transfer if the price is reasonable.
