Tottenham Hotspur will likely be linked with many players at the World Cup in Russia this summer, but one or two players are catching supporters’ eyes in particular.
The club have been linked with Ante Rebic of Croatia in recent days, who played a crucial role in their stunning 3-0 win over Argentina on Thursday night, netting the first goal of the game.
The 24-year-old plays his club football at German side Eintracht Frankfurt, where he scored nine goals in 28 appearances last term playing in attack on the left hand side or through the middle.
He’s certainly a player who would give Spurs depth and versatility next season in support of their attacking mainstays under Mauricio Pochettino.
Scouting at the World Cup can be folly, but no doubt fans will be keeping a closer eye on Rebic in the games to come, with many already taking to Twitter in recent days to share their enthusiasm for signing him.
You can see some of the comments below…
Teach him how to tackle without getting carded and he would be a good signing. Was immense vs Bayern in the German cup final

After impressive displays at this summer's world cup, Frankfurt & Croatia forward Ante Rebic becomes the latest player to join the list of our transfer targets.
A quick & powerful striker, he's by no means the finished article but at 24 there's plenty of room for improvement.

I’ve tracked his progress for the last 3 or 4 years. A good player who has great technical ability. Unfortunately a good World Cup and he’ll be a £70-80 million pound player and out of our reach

Me in the 1st half: Rebic should be subbed. Why are spurs linked to him?
Me in the 2nd half: welcome to tottenham
