Tottenham Hotspur have received a huge injury boost regarding star winger Dejan Kulusevski.
Kulusevski has been an excellent performer for the London outfit since joining on loan from Juventus in the winter transfer window of 2022. He has played 25 Premier League games so far, registering six goals and 11 assists. Tottenham have the option to sign him permanently for €35 million at the end of the current season.
Journalist Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Dejan Kulusevski is set to return to action this weekend after injury. He is likely to be called up for Tottenham’s Premier League clash against Liverpool this weekend.
Kulusevski suffered a hamstring injury while on international duty with Sweden last month. He has missed the Spurs’ last 10 games in all competitions as a result.

Antonio Conte has provided an update on Tottenham’s injury situation while speaking to the media recently. He said: “We have these injuries and I can confirm Richarlison is not available for the game. It is the same for Romero but Bentancur is much better.
Today he was part of the training session. It was the same for Kulusevski, today he had half training session with us.” Spurs are currently third in the Premier League table, five points behind leaders Arsenal. Kulusevski’s return will be a massive boost for Antonio Conte as the London outfit look to challenge for the Premier League title this season.
Fabrizio Romano provided an update on Giovani Lo Celso future
In another report, Fabrizio Romano claimed that Giovani Lo Celso’s long-term future lies away from Tottenham. In his column for Caught Offside, he wrote: “I expect Giovani Lo Celso’s future lies away from Tottenham.
His price tag of around €20-25m stopped Villarreal from signing him on a permanent deal this summer, but they love him and he’s key player since returning on loan.”
Lo Celso joined the Spurs on loan from Real Betis in 2019 and permanently in 2020. However, he has failed to establish himself among the regulars at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The Argentina international has played 55 Premier League games for Spurs so far, registering one goal and three assists.
