Arsenal Expresses Interest In A Struggling Dejan Kulusevski

Sky Sports Italy reports that Arsenal is interested in acquiring Dejan Kulusevski, who is now struggling at Juventus and might be available for a bargain price. Next summer, Mikel Arteta hopes to add another wide attacker to his roster in order to improve his attacking alternatives for the next season.


Since his signing with Juventus, many have predicted that Dejan Kulusevski would ignite the Serie A. Juventus spent more than £30 million to sign him from Atalanta after he made an impression while on loan at Parma, where he scored 10 goals in the 2019/20 season.

The Swede was a regular starter in his first full season with the club, playing 35 games in Serie A, and was expected to establish himself as a major element of Massimiliano Allegri’s squad this season. Kulusevski, on the other hand, has only made 11 appearances this season, with the manager preferring to utilize him from the bench more often. As a consequence, he has just 355 minutes to his name from his 11 outings.


Allegri has made significant changes to the general structure since his re-admission. Juventus has evolved from being an aggressive team to being a more pragmatic one. Consequently, Kulusevski has lost his spot in the team, with Federico Chiesa and Juan Cuadrado taking up regular positions on the right side.

Because of his lack of playing time, he has been linked with a transfer away from the club, with a number of clubs expressing an interest in the 21-year-old. Barcelona is reportedly interested in signing the Swede since they have a number of difficulties on the right flank, particularly as a result of Ousmane Dembele’s ongoing injury woes, according to reports.

According to reports, Tottenham is also intrigued, with former Juventus technical director Fabio Paratici laying the foundation for the north Londoners. However, there is a new entry in the race, with Arsenal, Tottenham’s arch-rivals, showing an interest in the winger.


Mikel Arteta is interested in bringing in a wide attacker for the next season since the future of Nicolas Pepe is in question. Despite joining Arsenal in a £72 million transfer from Lille, the Ivorian has failed to live up to the high expectations placed on him. In the meanwhile, Arteta seems to have given up on signing the winger and is looking at other possibilities on the market.

They have lately been linked with a move for Villarreal’s Yeremi Pino, and more players are steadily making their way onto their radar. Kulusevski has traits that Arsenal’s current wide attackers do not possess, and his age profile corresponds to the club’s new transfer strategy, suggesting that a move to the Emirates might be on the cards.

Kulusevski is not the only player from Serie A who has been linked with a move to Arsenal in recent weeks. There have been indications of negotiations with Fiorentina for Dusan Vlahovic, but Arsenal may decide to abandon their pursuit of the striker and search elsewhere for a replacement.


As for Kulusevski, he will not be cheap, as Juventus will want to extract the most value possible from any bidders, considering that the Swede is under contract with the club until 2025. As an alternative to Arsenal and Tottenham, if the player is placed on the market for sale, he will have a larger pool of potential suitors to select from.
