Tottenham announce the signing of Luka Vuskovic

Despite being just 16 years of age, Vuskovic made his professional debut this year in February, making him the youngest player to ever appear in the senior Croatian top flight.

One month later Vuskovic became the youngest scorer in Hajduk Split history and has now earned 11 appearances for the senior side across all competitions.

Tottenham will allegedly be paying a total of £12m for the teenager (Evening Standard), who also attracted interest from  ChelseaLiverpool and Newcastle (Daily Mail), as well as Man City, PSG and AC Milan (Calciomercato).

According to Fabrizio Romano on the Here We Go podcast, Vuskovic was so keen to join Spurs that he told his club to only negotiate with the North London club.

Spurs Web Opinion:

You never know how a 16-year-old is going to develop over the next four years or so, but it is very exciting to see Tottenham investing in youth again. That is where we have seen so much success over the years, and it is also how the likes of Brighton are having so much success at the moment.
