Rio Ferdinand has urged Tottenham to permanent Dejan Kulusevski loan deal from Juventus in the summer.
The Swede joined Spurs on an 18-month loan in January, worth £8.3million and including the option to make the move permanent this summer for a further £24.9m.
Despite only linking up with Tottenham in the winter transfer window, the Swedish star who made Rio’s signing of the season shortlist has hit the ground running in English football scoring three times and hitting eight assists in fourteen appearances.
Speaking on his YouTube show Vibe with Five, Ferdinand praises his impact at Tottenham, saying: “Kulusevski has been phenomenal at Spurs.
“I think he plays like a man beyond his years, cultured and calm. If they don’t sign him they’re crazy.”
Spurs certainly have a hugely promising young talent on their hands, and signings like this are sure to be key to persuading Conte that they have serious ambitions as well.
The winger has effortlessly slotted into the right side of Tottenham’s front three alongside Harry Kane and Son Heung-min and the trio have been an integral part to their side’s revival over the past two months for the Premier League top four race.
At just 21, Kulusevski looks destined for stardom.
