How much Tottenham would have to pay to sign Dejan Kulusevski permanently


 

Dejan Kulusevski has been grabbing the headlines after a starring display for Tottenham against Manchester City.

The Swede would start his first league game for Spurs in the clash after a move in the January window.

And Kulusevski could not have asked for a better 90 minutes. Tottenham shocked the masses and came away with a staggering 3-2 win, which has blown the title race wide open.

It was Kulusevski who opened the scoring on the day as well as providing an assist for the Lilywhites.

Such an impressive display has now likely got some Tottenham fans thinking about the prospect of their side signing the 21-year-old on a permanent basis. But just how much would that set Spurs back?

Well, Kulusevski joined Tottenham on an 18-month loan deal that cost Spurs £8.3m - £2.5m this season and £5.8m next season.

There is also an obligation to buy the Sweden international for £29.2m if certain sporting criteria are met, as per Sky.

What does this criteria consist of? According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Tottenham would have to qualify for the Champions League next season with Kulusevski making 15 appearances as a starter:

Burnley up next for Tottenham

Tottenham’s next outing will see them face off with Burnley on Wednesday the 23rd of February.

The tie is a must-win for Spurs, as they look to gain some ground on the rest of the Europe-chasing sides.

Tottenham are currently three points behind both Arsenal and West Ham in the Premier League table. However, they do have three games in hand on the Hammers and two on Manchester United, which will soon be three after the Red Devils face Leeds on Sunday.

Burnley, meanwhile, have climbed off the bottom of the table following a 3-0 win over Brighton. But the Clarets have still won just two league games all season.
