Luka Vuskovic to Tottenham deal said to be around €10m
According to journalist Loic Tanzi (h/t Le Equipe), the deal that will see Tottenham Hotspur sign talented young Croatian centre-back Luka Vuskovic will be worth around €10 million.
It has been in the works for quite a while now and it comes as no surprise that Tottenham are going to sign Vuskovic. Despite interest from PSG, the player has been keen on moving to North London and is on the verge of making it happen.
Just 16 years old currently, the amount of hype that Vuskovic is generating is not normal. If the latest revelation is actually accurate, the kind of money that Tottenham are going to pay for someone of his age is not normal either.

Playing for Hajduk Split in his native, Vuskovic has been a standout performer for the Croatian side in recent times. Tottenham already have a Hajduk alumni in their ranks in Ivan Perisic and Vuskovic would be an interesting addition.
Being a centre-back, Luka Vuskovic stands out with his defensive prowess but his ability on the ball and decision-making at such a young age is what sets him apart from the other talents. Postecoglou will be licking his lips at the prospect of having him.
It is expected that the Croatian centre-back will not come to the N17 until at least he turns 18 and rightly so. What he needs right now is regular game time and he is getting plenty of it in his hometown.
If he was to come here, there is no way he would get into the first team ahead of Cristian Romero or Micky van de Ven. Yes, he can drop down and play for the U-21s or the U-18s but he is still better off getting first-team football with Hajduk.
2-3 seasons down the line, the Croatian will be ready to make the move to North London. Let’s not forget that he will still be a teenager then. Tottenham are not blessed with great centre-back depth but Vuskovic could be one for the future.
