Tottenham Hotspur are keeping tabs on 23-year-old Aberdeen ace Slobodan Rubezic
North London giants Tottenham Hotspur are closely monitoring Aberdeen’s rising star, Slobodan Rubezic, as we approach the 2024 January transfer window.
Under the guidance of Ange Postecoglou, Spurs have experienced a resurgence and are a formidable team once more. Their second-place standing in the Premier League could potentially be elevated if they win their high-stakes clash against Chelsea on Monday.
Despite bolstering their squad in the 2023 summer transfer window, Spurs are still active in the transfer market and remain keen to identify potential opportunities. Postecoglou, with his knowledge of the Scottish Premier League, has directed Tottenham scouts to explore the potential reinforcements in his former stomping grounds in the north of the border.
According to The Sun, one player who has particularly piqued their interest is 23-year-old Slobodan Rubezic. He made his way to Aberdeen last summer and swiftly established himself as a standout player.
Rubezic’s adaptability is a significant asset, as he can function as a centre-back or even step into a defensive midfield role when needed. His ability to skillfully advance the ball from the back aligns perfectly with the style of football favoured by Postecoglou.
While Tottenham already possesses a robust defensive pairing in Micky van de Ven and Cristian Romero, adding Rubezic to the mix would provide valuable depth for Postecoglou to utilize when necessary.
Rubezic’s proficiency in aerial duels and his knack for intercepting passes make him a valuable asset for a team looking to capitalize on counter-attacks. With Tottenham’s attack gaining momentum this season, quick transitions from defence to offence can make their goalscoring more potent.
As a full international for Montenegro, Rubezic undoubtedly has a promising future in the game. However, there are areas he needs to refine before making the leap to the competitive environment of the Premier League.

It’s worth noting that the 23-year-old has accumulated seven bookings in his 19 appearances for Aberdeen in all competitions this season. To make a lasting impression in the Premier League, he will need to exhibit better discipline.
There is still much for the youngster to learn and it would be worthwhile for us to scout him for a while longer before potentially making a punt for his services.
