Christian Romero joined Tottenham from Italian club Atalanta in the summer of 2021.
Spurs have made a number of signings in that window, but it’s fair to say Romero is one of the few to actually succeed.
The Argentine excels in Antonio Conte’s defense and is proving to be one of the best defenders in the Premier League at the moment.
Now, after nearly a full season in England, Romero has revealed the player who really surprised him at Spurs.
And despite only being at the club since January, Romero stated that it was Dejan Kulusevski, currently on loan from Juventus, who was surprised: “The one who really surprised me was Kulusevsky because I think he also added something we didn’t have or didn’t see much.
“He’s a really smart + smart player who has become a vital cog in our squad.”

Kulusevsky’s mission at Tottenham
It’s easy to see why Kulusevsky surprised Romero.
The Swede played the first half of the 2021/22 season with Juventus, scoring only one goal and providing three assists in 20 Serie A matches.
But for Tottenham, Kulusevski scored three goals and assisted six in just 11 Premier League games.
It just got worse for Leeds… 😩
