Kulusevski links up with the North Londoners on an initial 18-month loan, with an obligation to buy.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the loan fee for the Swedish winger is around £8m.

Then there is a £29m obligation to buy included in the deal once the loan comes to an end, although that is dependent on appearances.

However Romano claims there is also an option to buy for the same fee as well, should the necessary clauses to automatically trigger the transfer not be met.

Spurs confirmed on Twitter: “We are delighted to announce the signing of Dejan Kulusevski from Juventus, subject to international clearance and a work permit.

“Welcome to Tottenham, Dejan!”

Meanwhile Juve wrote on their website: “We thank him [Kulusevski] today, wishing him good luck in his future.

“Thanks, Dejan!”

Kulusevski’s ten goals and nine assists for Parma in the 2019/20 season earned him the Best Young Player in Serie A award.

He was subsequently snapped up by Juve at the start of the 2020/21 campaign, and made 74 appearances in total for the Serie A giants.

But first team minutes at Juventus have been hard to come by in recent months, with the majority of his 27 appearances this campaign coming from the bench.

Kulusevski and Bentancur arrive just hours after it was revealed midfielder Tanguy Ndombele – Spurs’ record signing – had left the club, joining Lyon on loan until the end of the season.

Elsewhere Dele Alli is set to join Ndombele in quitting Conte’s side to link up with new Everton boss Frank Lampard on Merseyside.

And on what has been a busy day already for Spurs Bryan Gil and Giovani Lo Celso are also expected to leave on deadline day – to Valencia and Villarreal respectively, both on initial loan deals.
