North Londoners have been tracking wonderkid for some time now.
Tottenham Hotspur are set to reignite their long-running interest in young Dinamo Zagreb midfield player Alen Halilovic, dubbed ‘the new Luka Modric’ back in his homeland, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
The north London club have actually tried to sign the 17-year-old in the past, along with his then team-mate Tin Jedvaj, only for the Croatian outfit to turn down Tottenham’s reported bid of £17 million for the duo, with the defender having since left Zagreb to join Roma.
However, now it appears as though Spurs are set to return with a new offer for the highly rated Croatia international, who made headlines in his country last October when becoming the youngest-ever player to score in Croatian football aged just 16 years and 112 days.
And a month later, Halilovic then went on to make his debut for his club in the Uefa Champions League.
So far, the attacking midfield player has made 27 appearances for Zagreb in all competitions since making his debut for the Croatian giants in September 2012, scoring two goals in the process, both of which arrived in his 20 league outings.
But with it being reported that a fee of £12m has already been agreed between the two partie for Halilovic, now all that needs to be discussed are the player’s personal terms.
