Tottenham are closing in on the capture of the Croatian defender Luka Vuskovic.
The talented 16-year-old defender is expected to join Tottenham soon and Fabrizio Romano has now revealed that the player will undergo his medical with the Premier League club next week.
There have been rumours that the defender will cost around £1-2 million but Romano believes that the actual fee will be way higher. The Italian journalist also added that the project at Tottenham attracted the player and he did not want his representatives to negotiate with other clubs.
“To see that project was crucial for Luka Vuskovic. He told Hajduk not to negotiate with any other club, he only wanted to go to Tottenham, and now the deal is done and we wait for the medical tests. From what I’m hearing it will take place next week. Next week, very soon, Vuskovic will complete medical tests as a new Tottenham player and then I can share details in terms of money, it won’t be a small fee, it will be an important fee for a 16-year-old boy, it won’t be £1m or £2m it will be way more than this,” Romano said on the Here We Go Podcast.
Vuskovic is rated highly around European football and he is expected to develop into a top-class defender for Tottenham.
Spurs need to bring in defensive reinforcements and it is hardly a surprise that they have snapped up a prospect like Vuskovic.
The 16-year-old will now look to continue his development at the North London club and it remains to be seen whether they can help him fulfil his potential.
Meanwhile, a report from Evening Standard reported a few days ago that the 16-year-old defender will remain at his current club Hajduk until his 18th birthday and he will move to Tottenham in 2025.
The talented young defender has the potential to establish himself as a first-team player for Tottenham and he could end up saving the London club millions in the transfer market if he manages to achieve his potential with them.
The reported fee could look like a major bargain in the long run.
