Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Football Transfer Tavern have been left excited by news from Mirror Football reporting that the club are set to sign 17-year-old Dinamo Zagreb wonderkids Tin Jedvaj and Alen Halilovic.
According to reports in Croatia, the two teenagers would remain in their native country on loan despite signing for Spurs given their young age but the highly-rated pair will then move to England after their respective 18th birthday’s.
Real Madrid and Roma are also thought to be in the race for the talented youngsters and the Italian club failed with a £5 million bid for Jedvaj last week. But Spurs are putting together a package worth £15 million with Dinamo president Mirko Barisic claiming the deal is ‘all agreed’.
The club’s sporting director Zoran Mamic believes that Haliovic (pictured) could be an improvement on former Spurs favourite Luka Modric who also signed from Dinamo:
“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.”
