Tottenham on the verge of double addition as details of Kulusevski deal emerge
Tottenham are on the verge of making a double signing from Juventus in the dying days of the transfer window.
The Lilywhites were thought to be close to deals for Adama Traore and Luis Diaz, but both move have since been hijacked by Barcelona and Liverpool respectively, leaving Spurs high and dry.
However, they seem to have identified alternative targets, in the form of Juventus duo Rodrigo Bentancur and Dejan Kulusevski, while the loan addition of Sofyan Amrabat remains in the pipeline.
For Kulusevski, Spurs seem set to bring the Swede in on an initial loan deal with an option to buy set at around 40 million euros, which could become an obligation under certain conditions such as Champions League qualification.

Now, an update on the potential future of Rodrigo Bentancur has emerged too, with Tottenham thought to be offering a deal worth 19 million euros and 6 million euros in add-ons, something that as of yet Juve have not accepted.

Juventus are prepared to sign Denis Zakaria immediately once Bentancur will leave.

Should Spurs add both players to their side, it will raise question marks about the potential signing of Sofyan Amrabat, but given the torrid window thus far, Lilywhite fans will just be happy to see warm bodies through the door.
