In today’s print edition, Gazzetta dello Sport have heaped praise onto Atalanta’s Dejan Kulusevski, who is currently starring whilst out on loan at Parma and is drawing links to many top clubs including Inter.
“The numbers speak for themselves: Kulusevski has made 16 appearances, scored four goals, given six assists, made 16 key passes and covers 12.164 kilometres on average per game, second only to Inter’s Marcelo Brozovic in this category. For a boy born in 2000 it really has been a nice start,” the report begins.
“After training in the morning, he spends his afternoons watching matches on television. He studies his upcoming opponents and tries to work out their weaknesses and also watches some of his idols – especially Real Madrid’s Edin Hazard – play and try to copy their feints and movements.
“Making comparisons to other players is always difficult but Kulusevski is similar to Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne. Not just as a play maker, not just as a midfielder, not just as a striker nor a winger, we are talking about someone who can be used in any role in the attack.”
As per many reports in the media at the moment, Inter are closing in on reaching a deal with Atalanta for a Summer transfer move that could cost €35 million.
