Tottenham Hotspur is poised to secure the signing of a promising young defender, Luka Vuskovic, from the Croatian club Hajduk Split, as reported by the renowned transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
Despite being only 16 years old, Vuskovic’s impending transfer to Spurs is generating considerable excitement in European football circles.
Romano, in his characteristic style on social media platform X (formerly Twitter), broke the news with this exclusive update:
“EXCLUSIVE: Tottenham are on the verge of signing Croatian CB top talent Luka Vusković! #THFC After top project for his development, Vusković only wants Spurs — despite interest from 5 more top clubs. Personal terms agreed, clubs finalising paperwork. Here we go.”
One remarkable aspect of Vuskovic’s profile is his commanding presence as a center-back, standing tall at 6 feet 4 inches (193 cm).
Despite his youth, he has already made 11 appearances for Hajduk Split’s first team, an achievement made more impressive by the club’s second-place finish in the Croatian league, trailing only eventual champions Dinamo Zagreb in the previous season.
According to the Evening Standard, Vuskovic will continue his development at Hajduk until he reaches the age of 18, at which point he will join the ranks of Tottenham Hotspur in North London.
Numerous other European football powerhouses had expressed interest in the Split-born talent, with clubs like Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool, and Paris Saint-Germain previously linked as potential destinations.
However, it is Tottenham Hotspur that has emerged as the victor in securing the young prodigy’s services, representing a significant boost to Ange Postecoglou’s ongoing transformation of the team.
Since taking the helm at N17, Postecoglou has overseen an impressive run, amassing ten points from a possible 12 in the Premier League.
Their most recent triumph came in a commanding 5-2 victory over Burnley, marking an exciting phase in the club’s evolution with the addition of Luka Vuskovic on the horizon.
