Croatian open to Tottenham move

Alen Halilovic

Dinamo Zagreb youngster Alen Halilovic has confirmed that he would be interested in a move to Tottenham Hotspur this winter, as reported by Sky Sports.

Spurs were close to agreeing a deal with Zagreb in the summer for 17 year old Halilovic but the deal was still a way from being completed when the window slammed shut.

The Croatian playmaker has been likened to idol Luka Modric in recent years and it appears to be a matter of time until a big move comes his way.

Arsenal and Juventus have now joined Tottenham in pursuit of Halilovic and the young Croatian international may have a big decision to make during January with his preferred destination seemingly the Premier League with North London being the likely destination.

“I can confirm that last summer I was close to moving abroad, a transfer from Dinamo was not far away,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I can also tell you that this club still wants me.

“I will just say that I love English and Spanish football the most.”
