As the world cup progresses more transfer links are coming in and sections of today’s press are reporting that Spurs have already made an offer for Marcelo Brozovic – a Dinamo Zagreb midfielder who has been away with Croatia at the World Cup.
Still only 21, the player has so far made two full international appearances for his country and while he may be one for the future, it’s thought that plenty of European clubs are chasing his signature this summer. Alongside Spurs, Inter Milan, Sevilla, Schalke 04 and Roma are all monitoring the situation and there are conflicting reports as to whether bids are already in.
“I don’t know what is going on,” said Dinamo director of sport Zoran Mamic. “But I know one thing: so far our club didn’t get any official offers for him.”
However, that’s not a view shared by the player’s agent.
“Two weeks ago I talked with Piero Ausilio from Inter about Brozovic,” said Miroslav Bicanic. “But that was two weeks ago and there have been no further contact. I know rumours but at the moment there are no official contracts.”
Spurs will continue to be linked with young Croatians as the hunt for the ‘next Modric’ continues. One report even claims we have made an offer but is there really any room for Marcelo Brozovic in our crowded midfield?
