Tottenham have made a £15.9 million offer for Beskitas and Croatia defender Domagoj Vida, according to reports in Turkey.
Vida has been one of the standout centre-backs at the 2018 World Cup so far – he was on the scoresheet in normal time and in the penalty shootout as Croatia beat hosts Russia in Saturday’s quarter-final.
The 29-year-old is now set to go head-to-head with Harry Kane when Croatia take on England in the semi-finals on Wednesday.
And according to Turkish outlet A Spor, Vida could be playing in the same side as Kane next term.
A Spor claims Spurs have lodged a £15.9 million bid for the former Dynamo Kiev star, who only joined Beskitas in January.
His performances during the second half of the season earned him a place in Croatia’s World Cup starting line-up ahead of ex-Tottenham defender Vedran Corluka.
Spurs are likely to make a move for a new centre-back this summer with Toby Alderweireld expected to leave the club.
Vida is the same age as Alderweireld, 29, so a move for the Croatian may depend on Mauricio Pochettino’s age preference – he generally pursues younger players.
