English Premier League side Tottenham are set to pull off the signing of Croatian wonderkid Alen Halilovic after reports emerged that club chairman Daniel Levy is in Croatia to negotiate a deal for the player.

According to Croatian daily sports newspaper Sportske Novosti, Levy met with Dinamo Zagreb executive director Zdravko Mamic in the Croatian port city of Dubrovnik in order to thrash out a deal to bring the latest Croatian wonderkid to the Premier League.

Levy is believed to have a good working relationship with Mamic since 2008, when the two negotiated a deal for Luka Modric.

The Croatian club is reportedly willing to cash in on the talented playmaker with Spurs thinking about a possible €15m bid for the player.

Halilovic, 17, whose contract with Dinamo expires in a year, has already made 25 appearances for the club despite his young age and had also represented the Croatian national team once against Portugal in a friendly in June this year.

Spurs are desperate to land the youngster after missing out on Tin Jedvaj earlier in the window to Serie A side Roma after having thought that they had succeeded in a £17.1m double swoop for the Croatian starlets.

Halilovic, whose playing style is similar to Argentine superstar Lionel Messi, has also attracted the interest of Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and AC Milan.

If Levy manages to pull off this deal, Tottenham would have bought themselves a player who is destined to shine in the future.

With Gareth Bale potentially set to move to Madrid, Halilovic might also find himself playing a more active role for Spurs next season.
