TOTTENHAM could swap Giovani Lo Celso for Dejan Kulusevski, according to reports.
Boss Antonio Conte wants to reshape his squad in January.
And he could start by raiding one of his former clubs.
Spurs are believed to be competing with North London rivals Arsenal for Kulusevski’s signature.
And according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Conte’s side have the upper hand.
They point out that Tottenham managing director Fabio Paratici knows all the details about Kulusevski’s contract, having brought him to Juventus himself.
It’s added that Conte is a fan of the Swede and that he would pick him on the right of his attacking trio in a 3-4-3.
Spurs want to pay less than £25m for the winger and believe that including a player could sweeten the deal.

The Lilywhites are said to be willing to offer away players that Conte can do without.
This could lead to Lo Celso being added as bait.
Spurs’ interest in Kulusevski is reportedly concrete.
But it’s not yet known if Juve like Lo Celso.
Kulusevski, 21, isn’t particularly unhappy in Turin.
But he would have hoped to progress more than he has since joining in 2020.
He has made 68 appearances for Juve, scoring eight goals and laying on 10 assists.
Kulusevski has started just four of Juventus’ 19 Serie A games so far this season.
Lo Celso, meanwhile, has endured another injury-hit campaign.
The 25-year-old has featured just twice under Conte, having sustained knee and shinbone injuries.
