Sky Sports pundit and Manchester United legend Gary Neville has heaped praise on in-form Tottenham Hotspur attacker Dejan Kulusevski.

Dejan Kulusevski has been outstanding for Tottenham this season, and former Manchester United captain Gary Neville believes that he could be a £100 million player soon.

Neville said on Sky Sports, “Players that play in that role, that take it on the back foot and accept it on the back foot, the attacking midfielders, the No 10s, any player of that ilk, they’re very rare to be able to do that. What we’ve seen in the last few weeks is him playing that role and become one of the rare players.”

“You’re talking about him going from a player who might be £50m on the right to being something that if he gets going in that No 10 position, can be really special and then you’re pushing it to an £80m or £100m player. It’s only potential at the moment and there’s a long way to go, but that’s what I see in him playing in that more central role. It’s really exciting. James Maddison will have to fight for that back!”

The Swedish international is naturally a right-sided winger. But he has played as the number ten at times. In the absence of James Maddison, he has had to shoulder the creative responsibility from the central areas.

Kulusevski has taken to his new role like a duck to water, and his performances have seriously impressed Neville. The Swede has shown that he has the tactical understanding, vision and technical ability to operate from the central areas and his versatility will come as a major boost for Tottenham.

The 23-year-old has five goals and two assists to his name across all competitions this season, and he will look to build on his performances and help Tottenham finish the season strongly. He seems to have flourished in Tottenham’s attacking setup under Ange Postecoglou.

The North London outfit will want to secure Champions League qualification this season, and they will need players to step up and deliver during the business end of the season. In the absence of Maddison, Tottenham will hope that Kulusevski can continue to perform at a high level in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, the 23-year-old winger is still quite young, and he is only going to get better with coaching and experience. He has all the attributes to develop into a world-class player, and Tottenham fans will hope that he can fulfil his potential with them. Kulusevski will be delighted with the praise he has attracted from former Premier League stars, and he will look to continue his development with regular football in the coming months.
