Parma coach Roberto D’Aversa spoke about Inter target Dejan Kulusevski, who scored the opening goal in the Emilian side’s 2-2 draw against Bologna earlier today, in an interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sports Italia.

“He’s proving to be a mature boy. I think that for his own good, Atalanta and ours it would be appropriate for him to stay here until the end of the season. If we think about what he’s doing in his first year in Serie A, he has a lot of room for improvement, it’s essential that he stays here to continue to grow and show his qualities.”

The 44-year-old Italian coach then explained why he smiled towards Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici, who was in the stands for the game.

“The eyes on Dejan have caused a lot of them to be on us as well, that’s why Atalanta were good sending him to a club where he could play continuously.”
