Tottenham Hotspur have reached an agreement with Croatian outfit Hajduk Split over the signing of young centre-back Luka Vuskovic, reports Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.
It was previously reported that Spurs had agreed personal terms with Vuskovic but they have now sealed the deal with his club.
The move will cost Tottenham €10 million plus bonuses, and the 16-year-old join the club when he turns 18 in 2025.
Vuskovic grabbed the attention of top clubs after he made his breakthrough with Hajduk’s first team at the start of this year and quickly established himself as a key player in the squad.
Playing a pivotal role in the club’s youth side to reach the finals of the UEFA Youth League, the prodigious talent was also part of the senior team that lifted the Croatian Cup.
Manchester City, Liverpool, Newcastle United and Paris Saint-Germain tried to sign Vuskovic but lost the transfer battle to Spurs.
Vuskovic is currently sidelined with injury problems and hasn’t made a single appearance this season.
He has already drawn comparisons with Barcelona legend Gerard Pique, highlighting his excellent ball-playing abilities.
A first-team call-up from Croatia is not far away for Vuskovic.
The Lilywhites will be eager to welcome him in 2025, but he will look to continue his progress with Hajduk to make his transition to the Premier League smoother.
Spurs continued their undefeated run in the Premier League under Ange Postecoglou with a thrilling 2-2 draw against city rivals Arsenal.
The Lilywhites are fourth in the table with 14 points, four points behind leaders Manchester City.
