Arsenal and Tottenham target Alen Halilovic has revealed he is keen on staying in Croatia until the end of the season, according to the Daily Express.

Halilovic has been attracting interest from a number of Europe's top clubs over the past couple of months but has decided to commit his short-term future to Dinamo Zagreb.

The 17-year-old attacking playmaker, who has been dubbed the 'new Luka Modric', wants to stay in his homeland Croatia until after this summer's World Cup in Brazil.

The Arsenal and Tottenham target is said to be fearful of sealing a move away from Croatia incase he struggles to adapt to life in the Premier League.

Halilovic is also wary of a move away from Croatia as he has seen former teammates Mateo Kovacic and Tin Jedvaj fail to hold down a regular first-team place for Inter Milan and Roma respectively.

Dinamo executive director Zdravko Mamic has also stated his intent on keeping Halilovic away from the clutches of both Arsenal and Tottenham.

Speaking to the Express, Mamic said on Halilovic: "We do not want to sell Halilovic.

"He's 17-years-old. Imagine if he stayed another four years with us."
