Tottenham expert shares 'unbelievable' Dejan Kulusevski claim
Tottenham star Dejan Kulusevski will score 15 Premier League goals this season and will prove to be a better signing than Luis Diaz.
That is according to Spurs insider John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.
Tottenham signed Kulusevski, 22, from Juventus in January after Liverpool beat them to the signing of Diaz, 25.
The winger took immediately made an impact in the Premier League, scoring five goals and picking up eight assists as Spurs qualified for the Champions League.
Wenham is backing Kulusevski to impress again this term.
“In hindsight, Luis Diaz for £60million or Dejan Kulusevski who we have only so far paid loan fees for, who is giving you more end product in the Premier League? Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“It’s Kulusevski. Diaz might be more marketable and might be quicker but Kulusevski has scored more goals. He’s 21 years of age and has all the characteristics to implement the styles of Kane and Son.
“I wouldn’t swap Kulusevski for Diaz. Kulusevski perfectly suits Tottenham and I am going to say this season that he will score 15 league goals.
“When you add those 15 goals to the goals Kane and Son guarantee you, we are going to be doing some serious damage this year.
“Kulusevski didn’t start a league game until after the start of February, the season finishes in May and he scored five goals and got eight assists in that time, it’s unbelievable.
“He hasn’t scored a home either, which I don’t mind because they are the harder games.”
Diaz scored four goals in 13 Premier League appearances during the 2021-22 season.
Tottenham start their season at home against Southampton on Saturday (6 August).
