Alen Halilovic: Strongly linked with Spurs deal

Alen Halilovic: Strongly linked with Spurs deal

It is reported that Spurs are willing to pay more than £15million for the pair - who are both 17, although Manchester City are also credited with an interest.

Dinamo say that at least one of the players will remain with them for the rest of the season - but it is open to debate if either would be allowed work permits to play in England.

Even though Croatia are now EU members, regulations mean that players are not free to move until 2016.

Of the two players, Halilovic would be most likely to be granted a permit on appeal as he is already a full international.

"We agreed with their future club, that one of them remains at least another year with us," club president Mirko Barisic told Sportske Novosti.

"For now we cannot confirm to which club they are going but it is true that they are both leaving.

"It is just too early to talk about the club which bought them. We will confirm that when everything will be sorted out.

"The transfer fee? 20 million Euros is - let us put it this way - the right number."

Jedvaj is a central defender with just over a dozen first-team appearances under his belt, whilst Halilovic is one of the most coveted young midfielders in world football.

Halilovic is the youngest player in Dinamo's history and is already part of Croatia's senior squad.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

T

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
