Alen Halilovic: Tottenham are keen on Dinamo Zagreb youngster

Zagreb president Mirko Barisic revealed early on Monday that they had agreed terms with an unnamed club for the two teenagers.

Now executive director Zdravko Mamic - who handles the club's transfers - has clarified the situation, insisting that a deal was not yet done, but he did confirm that it was Spurs they were talking to.

"Discussions and negotiations with Tottenham are still ongoing, but this job is absolutely not done," Mamic told a specially convened press conference.

"And Tottenham is not the only one interested, but we hope that transfer will be realised and that Tin and Alen will go to Tottenham, but no-one can guarantee that.

"If the business was done, we would say so and if the transfer is completed, they will both stay at Dinamo.

"I can also reveal that there are many clubs after both of them, there is not a club from the top 20 in Europe that didn't ask us about them."

Reports suggest that midfielder Halilovic and defender Jedvaj would cost Tottenham a total of £17.3m.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
