Croatia Under-21 midfielder Mateo Kovacic is due to have a medical today ahead of a move to Inter Milan, Dinamo Zagreb have confirmed.

The 18-year-old playmaker, who has already drawn comparisons to Luka Modric, will command a fee of around 11million euros, according to several reports.

"It all happened so fast and I'm still in shock, I do not even know what to say," Kovacic told Dinamo's website of the deal.

"Dinamo is my club and my home, so I find it hard to leave, but an offer from a club like Inter Milan, one of the biggest in the world, cannot be refused.

"Of course, it's not over and I'm waiting for my medical examination, but I believe this is just a formality."

Kovacic joined Dinamo as a youngster in 2007 from Linz. He was born in the Austrian city but is eligible for Croatia through his parents.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
