Tottenham close in on promising duo

Croatian youngster Tin Jedvaj

Tottenham Hotspur are ready for a double Croatian swoop this summer, according to The Mirror.

The club, who missed out on 4th place in the Premier League, are ready to sign Dinamo Zagreb duo Tin Jedvaj and Alen Halilovic.

However, reports in the Croatian media have suggested that Daniel Levy would not be bringing the pair to White Hart Lane. Instead, Jedvaj and Halilovic will stay with Croatian champions Zagreb.

Spurs look to have beaten off interest in Jedvaj from Roma, who had a £5million bid rejected last week. The 17-year-old had been linked with Real Madrid and Arsenal too.

Zagreb’s sporting director Zoran Mamic believes that Halilovic, also 17-years-old, can be better than Luka Modric was at White Hart Lane.

“A lot of people have compared him to Luka Modric, but he’s better than Luka was at this age,” Mamic said.

“Everyone at the club thinks he has even more potential and that he will become one of the best players in the world.”

The combined fee for the youngsters could reach £15m including contract clauses, after Zagreb president Mirko Barisic announced the deal is “all agreed”.

The youngsters would move to White Hart Lane when they turned 18-years-old, meaning that Jedvaj can join Spurs this winter, while Halilovic would arrive next summer.

Would the duo do well at Spurs? Is Levy right to send them back on loan first?
