Antonio Nusa, who was being pursued by Brentford and Tottenham Hotspur for £31 million, had a “very hard” last week of the transfer window as a result of losing out on the opportunity to join the Premier League.


Discussions took place with Tottenham Hotspur. In the meantime, Brentford reached an agreement that would have cost them an upfront sum of £25 million.


However, as the clock struck eleven o’clock on deadline day, Antonio Nusa was still a member of Club Brugge. HITC Football had been notified that the Norway international’s hopes of playing English football alongside Martin Odegaard and Erling Haaland had been dashed due to a knee injury.


Coach Ronny Deila has insisted that Nusa could need some time away from the spotlight, thus the adolescent will not be playing for Club Brugge in their forthcoming matches against Royal Antwerp and Union Saint-Gilloise. This decision comes amidst a lot of uncertainty and natural disappointment.


Brentford and Tottenham desired Belgian Croky Cup match between Antonio Nusa KAA Gent and Club Brugge.


“Both he and everyone else have had an extremely trying week. Antonio wants to get some sleep after everything that occurred. Although it’s depressing, we’re looking forward, the former Celtics manager says to Het Nieuwsblad.


The fact that we can still use him this season is a plus.


Even though he acknowledged that Ange Postecoglou’s Tottenham team was playing an exciting type of forward-thinking football and that Nusa might have been a better match for a team that some have called Norway’s Neymar, Deila had made no secret of his wish to keep Nusa.


He’s been everywhere and has talked to many people, therefore he says, “It’s sad.” And then there was that unexpected turn of events,” Deila continues, alluding to the knee issue that caused Brentford to retreat.


“We speak with him each day. We have to look after this youngster. I’m hoping to bring out the best in him once more soon. When we will see the greatest Nusa once more is still to be determined. Maybe try it again next season if it doesn’t work out this one.


Whether or whether Nusa remains a member of Club Brugge come 2024–2025 season may rely on how well the 18-year-old does in the upcoming months in terms of his fitness. You can be sure that Brentford, Tottenham, and other teams will be keeping a careful eye on the issue.


Meanwhile, it looks like Spurs will recruit another young player from Europe. The Djurgardens wonderkid Lucas Bergvall is expected to sign an £8.5 million agreement, leaving Barcelona out in the cold.
