Split star catching eye of Premier League giants.
Premier League duo Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are both said to be vying for the signature of Hajduk Split’s starlet winger Tonci Mujan, according to Sky Sports.
However, they are set to be disappointed during the January transfer window, as his father, Nikola, has stated that the 18-year-old is intent on staying with his current club for the time being.
The English pair may also face some serious competition from Serie A as he had admirers in the shape of Lazio, Napoli, Cagliari and Chievo, who have also been keeping tabs on his progression.
Mujan had also once been a target for Liverpool, though his father is adamant that the Croatian under-18 international will be staying in Split under the tutelage of former Croatian international Igor Tudor for a little while longer.
“I must admit a number of clubs are interested in Tonci. Some years ago he got a call to come to Liverpool, but he stayed,” he told daily newspaper Slobodna Dalmacija.
“Now there are more clubs from England who want him, and also from Italy.
“But for now he wants to stay at Hajduk and become an even better player. But then again we have to see what kind of plans his club has for him.”
