The Scout assesses key January signings and looks at the attributes managers in Fantasy Premier League can expect.
The versatile midfielder has the potential to offer Fantasy managers a value route into the Tottenham Hotspur attack.
Kulusevski arrives from Juventus and is expected to challenge Lucas Moura (£6.5m) for a role on the right of Antonio Conte’s front three.
Despite being limited to a total of five starts in Serie A and the UEFA Champions League this season, the Swede scored twice and supplied three assists.
Mainly left-footed, he prefers to cut inside from the flank before driving at opposition defences.
Crucially, he is also known for his high work-rate, which looks well-suited to Conte’s tactical approach.
The underlying statistics further highlight Kulusevski’s style of play.
|Mins per shot||42.3||44.6|
|Shots in box||15||18|
|Mins per shot in box||50.8||74.4|
Only three of his 18 shots in Serie A were from outside the penalty area.
Indeed, his average of 50.8 minutes per shot in the box is quicker than Lucas’s 74.4 minutes in Fantasy this season.
Kulusevski’s versatility can help establish himself in Conte’s line-up.
He can also play as an attacking central midfielder if Spurs switch to a 3-5-2 formation, with Son Heung-min (£10.6m) partnering Harry Kane (£12.3m) up front.
Nonetheless, if Kulusevski secures a role in Conte’s first XI, a cost of only £6.0m could make him a handy value route into the Spurs attack.
