    They rate him, but he doesn't fit their system, hence the "poor" performances. Put him in the right place, and he can be pretty good.

    I'd rather he concentrates on his football.

    Just watched a YouTube clip as I had no idea what type of player he is. I can see him linking up well with Kane. Probably replacing Moura on the right if we play with a 3. Can see him playing in a 2 with Kane or Son as well.

    You mean no injuries before he signed for us?

    James Horncastle:
    “Dejan Kulusevski came across to Italy very young. He caught the eye of Atalanta at a number of tournaments that are held in Italy. That’s a very good youth set up at Atalanta and he was part of a group of players who were winning Under-19 championships and was a transformative player for them. The other player of that generation, if not younger, was Amad Diallo Traore, who moved to Manchester United this time last year. The expectation was that Kulusevski would become a very important player for Atalanta, but the pathway through for him was blocked, because this Atalanta side is probably the best they’ve ever had, they’ve played Champions League for three consecutive years now and Josip Ilicic, the player in front of him at the time, was arguably the best player in the league.

    Dejan moved to Parma on loan and that’s where he won Serie A Young Player of the Year (2019/20). I would say he single-handedly kept Parma up that season, and I don’ think it’s a coincidence that when he left for Juventus, they went down. They couldn’t find a player in their style of play who could create and score the goals he did from his position. Dejan is a very versatile player, with the athleticism to play in the Premier League. There is no doubt about that, with both players. At Parma, he played off the right in a 4-3-3, he’s left footed, but when Juventus signed him, Maurizio Sarri was coach and playing in a 4-4-2 diamond, and the expectation was that Kulusevski would either play wide right or as a number 10. With Antonio Conte, he provides options in the 3-4-3/3-5-2 system.

    At Juventus, he could cover for Juan Cuadrado on the right, cover for Paulo Dybala just off the striker, cover for Federico Chiesa on the left, so he’s a player who can cover a lot of bases in attack. Parma were a counter-attacking side under Roberto D'Aversa, he had Gervinho on the left, Kulusevski on the right. They would defend deep, and it was up to one of those players to carry the ball forward and create - Dejan was very affective at that. He will be a very important player on transitions.”

    Looks a real talent. Really excited by the two signings we've made.

    I like his left foot finishing - looks very composed and controlled. Looks like he's got a good eye for a pass too. I'm sold.

    Good spot - it does, probably not in the same league (yet, hopfully), but the technique is similar.

    haha... Moura has been useful this season. So if its a back up for him we're still better off i guess

    Looks a very good finisher, stroking the ball into the net is always a good sign.
