Tottenham Hotspur


Hajduk Split’s Croatian starlet has already jetted in for a medical at Tottenham Hotspur as he closes in on a £9 million move to the Premier League giants. 

Sportske Novosti are careful to remind out that this is not going to be a straightforward trade between a man almost two decades older than 16-year-old Luka Vuskovic.

Despite interest from Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich, and others, Vuskovic, one of the most sought-after young defenders in European football, is on his way to Tottenham Hotspur, with Ivan Perisic maybe moving the other way.

However, the two agreements will be negotiated separately from one another; Perisic was not involved in negotiations for a 10 million euro contract to bring Vuskovic to Tottenham.

The article also states that Vuskovic will have a physical in London before committing to a long-term deal with Ange Postecoglou’s team. Vuskovic scored the youngest goal in Hajduk Split history just five days after turning 16 years old.

Vuskovic and his family have already flown into London; the official announcement may happen soon.

Perisic, meanwhile, might have to hold off on signing a return contract to the team where his professional career began until he becomes a free agent in the summer of 2024. The seasoned winger, who played in each of Spurs’ four Premier League games while Postecoglou was the manager of Celtic, is still a crucial component of Postecoglou’s plans.

Ivan Perisic still has one year left on his contract with Tottenham, as you are well aware, according to Mindaugas Nikolicius, the sporting director for Hajduk, who spoke to Dnevnik NoveTV in August.

Naturally, we are keeping an eye on the situation. And I’ll be honest and say that we’ll do everything we can to sign him.

I wouldn’t want to divulge (the content of the conversations), including who is speaking to whom and where the conversation is headed.

At 6 feet 4 inches tall, Vuskovic is already a mountain of a man. He will likely return to Hajduk on loan before joining the first team of Tottenham when he reaches 18.

“I’m happy that our coaches developed a fantastic talent. If Vuskovic joins Tottenham, I wish him the best,” beams Boro Primorac, a former Arsenal coach who is currently the director of the Hajduk Split academy (24Sata).

“The fact that he plays is the most crucial factor. It is crucial for both Hajduk and Croatian football that he trains with us. What is going on with the transfer is unknown to me.

However, it’s great to see Croatian athletes like (Josko) Gvardiol and (Luka) Modric sign with prestigious clubs.
