New £29.2m Tottenham 'goal threat' is 'like Son Heung-min'

Tottenham new boy Dejan Kulusevski is like Son Heung-min and will score goals for Antonio Conte’s side, claims journalist Paul Brown.

The 21-year-old was one of the north London club’s two signings in January and has managed to make an instant impact since arriving.

How has Kulusevski been performing at Tottenham?

Following that move from Juventus to Tottenham in the last transfer window, Kulusevski has impressed in the Premier League.

He was arguably Spurs’ best player behind Harry Kane in their brilliant 3-2 win against Manchester City, with the winger scoring one goal and setting up another.

Since then, Kulusevski has gone on to net against Leeds United in a 4-0 win that saw Marcelo Bielsa sacked as manager of the Whites.

Ultimately, as things stands, the Swedish star looks like an excellent piece of business done by Tottenham and Conte.

What has Brown said about Kulusevski?

Brown has compared Kulusevski to fan-favourite Son and is confident that he will continue to find the back of the net for his new side.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, the Daily Star journalist said: “He’s like Son, very good at bombing forward on the break. He’s not afraid to take people on and he’ll have a shot or two.

“He’s looked quite dangerous since he’s been there, and I think he’s going to be a goal threat and will score goals.”

Can Kulusevski get even better?

Without a doubt. Kulusevski is still just 21 years of age, so he has time and the potential to grow into an even better player.

Speaking to reporters about Kulusevski after the Leeds victory, Conte said (via “I was very clear when I signed [Rodrigo] Bentancur and Kulusevski. Two perfect players for the club, young talented players to develop. Kulusevski is a player who is only 21 years old and in these four games he could have scored in every game.

“I think he is showing that he is a fantastic player for the present but also he if he continues in this way he can become a really important player.”

Tottenham signed Kulusevski on an initial 18-month loan deal with an option to buy for £29.2m, and you suspect that they will take up that option if the Sweden international keeps these performances up.

All in all, it has been a good start to life at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for Kulusevski, and Conte will no doubt be hoping that he can build on that.
