During the summer Spurs were linked at length with a move for Croatian midfielder Alen Halilovic. Still only 17, the Dinamo Zagreb midfielder had already broken into the full national side and was predictably dubbed the ‘new Modric’ as a result but as the winter window starts to draw closer, the rumours of a move to the Lane have started once again.

But how close are we to landing the attacking midfielder, who made his professional debut at the age of 17? If you believe our old friends over at The Metro, the net is tightening after Daniel Levy met with Zagreb officials on three separate occasions recently.

Halilovic could conceivably be available on a free in the summer so it’s claimed by the Newspaper that Tottenham are offering a straight cash deal in January of £12m up front with £3m to follow depending on appearances.

However, other parts of the press suggest that the winter approach is already dead with the player’s father intervening once again. Family and agent are alleged to want a guarantee of first team football or there’s no deal in sight.

Halilovic is obviously a gifted player but there seem to be so many obstacles in the way of this transfer that it’s hard to see anything coming to fruition. However, there’s always the possibility that The Metro have got something right…

  1. Evee get the feeling Levy is sanctioning the signing of these young ‘potentials’ to sell them for a fat profit the momoment they fulfill that potential? No other team would’ve spent £30m on Lamella. He obviously forsees a fat Bale profit in 3 years, but got a feeling we’re gonna get burnt on a lot of these. Chadli & Lamella will not cut it here.

    • Another illiterate uneducated dick with a lap top… please Nada, learn to spell before you comment albeit your comment is irrelevant you worthless sub human rodent. Is it possible to password protect the internet from thick morons like Nada & askshayaalese? Really, mutants with such brain deficiencies should not have a forum… I think it’s time we locked up people for being as uneducated as the above two twonks… let’s do humanity and evolution a favour.

      • You sound like an arrogant twat. It is quite likely, that both of the above mentioned are not English. You should save your time; stop pulling people out on their grammar and put it some good use. Prick. Did I spell that right!?

        • It’s put it TO some good use not “put it some good use.”

          Jesus why do all the thick morons stick together. That’s rhetorical Mart you moron – I suggest you google the meaning of the word. Yet another sub human dragging down society. Hey Mart, go read a book you thick lump of dump.

          • P.S. Mart, there is no need for a comma in your first sentence. No need at all. I think what you mean to say is that the above retards are not native English speakers however your implication is that they are not English… lol… as if being English were an automatic qualification for being educated… Let me guess you are English? Says it all. You fail to grasp the basic fundamentals of your own native language. You are the exact human scum I am referring too, thick as shit but doesn’t know it. Please, you too, do humanity and evolution a favour and do away with yourself before you have the opportunity to breed human rats with your junkie whore girlfriend.

  2. I’d prefer to see Tom Carroll coming back into the squad before we splash near 20 mill on a troublesome pain in the ass the above appears to be… his Dad is involved.. thats not good and lets be honest here our previous croats have all been a massive pain in the ass. modric showed no respect, krankjar moaned constantly that he wasn’t a regular and corluka was pretty damn unfocussed. we already have Holtby, Eriksen and Tommy Carroll, we don’t need hassle-alovic or whatever the kids name is.

  3. 6 PLAYER NEED IN JANUARY FOR 4-2-3-1 & 4-4-2 SYSTEAM 1.LB- CONTRAO (BEST DEFENCE AS WELL AS ATTAK, CROSS, CREATIVITY ) 2.CM-XABI ALONSO OR PIRLO OR POGBA OR GUNDOGAN (PARTNER WITH PAULINHO MORE BOX TO BOX CREATIVITY AND DEFENCE ) 3.CAM/WINGER MATA (HE HANDLE MIDDLE & WING AREA TO CREATE MOER CENTER FORWARD ROLE) 4.LW TELLO OR GERIZMMAN (HIS PLAYING TRIKY CREATIVE AND ATTAKING STYLE SUITE FOR ) 5.ST LAVEZZI BETTER FOR CF BEACUSE CURRUNT SOLDADO AND DEFOE CURRUNT IN FORM

  4. Chadli and Lamela will cut it here, they just need time to settle, get a run of games when injuries strike, and they will, so we need the FULL squad we have got. With Halilovic we do not throw our youngsters straight in at 17, nor should we. Look at Michael Owen, he was burnt out at 27/28. It is very naive of his Father, if true, to expect to go to a big club at his age and get first team football. If this is a stumbling block then best move on to other targets. We already have, Carroll, Ceballos, Pritchard, Falque as developers in place, out on loan, to fight for places in years to come.

  5. akshayaalase – why do you feel the need to use capital letters? I read the other comments here but not yours… you are an irritant. kindly, FOOK OFF

    • You seem to have a lot of time on your hands ‘Jimmy’ Un-employed? Are you a bitter job seeker? Maybe, and English teacher who has nothing better to do than correct people’s grammar on football blogs? What a cunt! LOL!

  6. Jimmy…are you even a spurs fan. It seems like you get more joy out of slagging off the army’s spelling mistakes other than commenting about the above subject. I feel sorry for you really. You clearly need to try and make others feel inferior to boost your ever growing grammar ego.
