Paratici, during his spell at Juventus, pulled the strings to bring Kulusevski to the Turin giants from Atalanta in January 2020.


Two years after signing the Swede for the Bianconeri, the 48-year-old oversaw a deadline day swoop to bring him to north London on an initial loan deal from the Serie A heavyweights.



Spurs legend Perryman feels Paratici showing willingness to return to a player that he had previously signed for another club in Kulusevski shows how much trust he has in the winger’s abilities.


Perryman also added that the fact boss Antonio Conte also gave his green light to snap up Kulusevski shows how much they rate him, as the Italian tactician will not bring in players that he is not certain will be able to do the job on the pitch.



“The fact that Conte, who has been in Italy, and the managing director of football Paratici, who recruited Kulusevski to Juventus, wanted him is definitely to his advantage”, Perryman told Swedish daily Expressen.


“He’s a great manager.



“He does not bring in a player that he is not certain will be willing to do the job.


“Conte’s partner [Paratici] brought Kulusevski to Juventus and in my opinion, it is a good sign when you go back for a player.


“It shows evidence of trust.


“Hopefully he can develop even more here, we need that.”


In addition to Kulusevski, Spurs also sealed a permanent swoop for Rodrigo Bentancur from Juventus, summing up their transfer business when it comes to incomings in the recently concluded winter window.
