Dinamo Zagreb youngster Alen Halilovic is set to join Barcelona after turning down a move to the Premier League, as reported by Sky Sports.

Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United have all been watching the 17 year old who is valued at £15million, but it appears Barcelona have now got their man.

Hallilovic already has three full caps for Croatia and is tipped to be the youngest player at the World Cup next summer, in a group alongside hosts Brazil.

Tottenham thought they had snapped up the wonderkid last summer only for the player to decide to stay with Zagreb for another season to enhance his career and reputation further.

Barcelona are set to announce the signing in the coming days but the player has already taken to social media to thank Dinamo for everything they have done for him since he joined the club as a child.

“Thank you Dinamo for everything. This is my first club and it will always be my biggest love,” Halilovic said on Instagram.

“But now it is time for Barcelona.”
