Tottenham set to land Dinamo Zagreb pair

Tottenham set to land Dinamo Zagreb pair

Tottenham are about to complete the ambitious deal for Dinamo Zagreb starlets Tin Jedvaj and Alen Halilovic, though neither of them arrives at White Hart Lane this summer.

According to the latest reports, the teenagers could stay on loan with Dinamo Zagreb, should Tottenham chief Daniel Levy manage to clinch the deal, worth £15million for pair, including performance-related clauses.

The Croatian champions have turned down the latest £5million bid from Roma for Jedvaj, while Real Madrid and Arsenal were reported to have scouted Halilovic.

Despite Dinamo Zagreb earning just one point in last season’s Champions League campaign, Halilovic managed to wow both the fans and the visiting scouts with his impressive performances.

Club’s sporting director Zoran Mamic believes Halilovic can surpass the level of Luca Modric: “A lot of people have compared him to Luka Modric, but he’s better than Luka was at this age.

“Everyone at the club thinks he has even more potential and that he will become one of the best players in the world.”

The starlets are expected to join Tottenham as soon as they turn 18 – next summer for Halilovic and this winter for Jedvaj.
