Tottenham have two clauses to buy Dejan Kulusevski from Juventus as part of their loan deal for the midfielder.

Spurs paid €10m (£8.3m) in January to borrow Kulusevski until June 2023 and are to pay the Sweden international’s full wages during that season and a half. But there is an option to turn the move into a permanent transfer this summer for 30 million euros.

The option will remain valid the following summer unless the second clause – a mandatory purchase clause of 35 million euros – comes into play. This will be activated at the end of the 2022-23 season if two conditions are met during the campaign: that Kulusevski plays in 50% of the team’s Premier League games for at least 45 minutes, and that Spurs qualify for the Champions League.

Kulusevski is extremely happy at Tottenham and with life in London, boosted by his relationship with Antonio Conte. The manager had wanted to sign Kulusevski when he was in charge of Internazionale two years ago and approved when Spurs chief football officer Fabio Paratici agreed the January deal.

Paratici, in his previous job, brought Kulusevski to Juventus from Atalanta in 2020 for €35m plus €9m in bonuses and was confident the player would thrive in the Premier League.
