Tottenham up their transfer interest in Zagreb ace

Alen HalilovicTottenham have upped their interest in Dinamo Zagreb starlet Alen Halilovic, according to reports from The Express.

Spurs have been monitoring the 17-year-old closely over the course of the summer, and were reportedly close to securing his signature a couple of months ago.

Their interest was thought to have cooled, but now it appears that the Londoners are firmly back in the race after opening negotiations with the Croatian giants.

Daniel Levy has reportedly jetted to Zagreb to meet with Dinamo chief Zdravko Mamic, and is hopeful that a deal can be agreed.

The relationship between the two clubs is thought to be a healthy one, after the pair agreed a deal for Luka Modric in 2008.

Halilovic is the latest player to emerge from their youth set-up, and is widely regarded as one of the finest young players in Europe.

He made history by making his full international debut for Croatia at just 16-years-of-age, making him the youngest player to have represented the nation.

A number of top clubs are also keen on the teenager, including the likes of Manchester City.

But, Levy is hopeful that the example of Modric’s successful time at White Hart Lane may convince Halilovic to opt for North London.

Could Alen Halilovic be Tottenham’s new Luka Modric?
