Dinamo Zagreb are waiting for Premier League clubs to make a move for their teen sensation Alen Halilovic, reports the Daily Mail.
The 17-year-old sensation has become one of the hottest prospects in Europe in the last 18 months, drawing the interest of Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United.
The Gunners and Spurs have been strongly linked with a move for the Croatian starlet in the past while David Moyes is believed to have Manchester United officials tracking his situation.
Barcelona took the initiative in the race for Halilovic's signature by launching a £3.2m bid, which was swiftly rejected by the Croatian club.
Now Zagreb are hoping Barcelona's bid will spark a bidding war involving Arsenal, Tottenham and the Red Devils, driving the price up towards the £12m Zagreb are hoping to get for him.
Tottenham's interest in the playmaker has inevitably led to comparisons with Luka Modric, who moved to White Hart Lane from Zagreb in 2008.
Arsenal meanwhile have Champions League football to offer the youngster as well as Arsene Wenger, who has a great track record of turning talented footballers in to world-class stars.
Moyes on the other hand is looking to insert some youth and creativity into a struggling Manchester United side and could be prepared to offer the club and the player the best possible terms to secure his services.
The Premier League trio will face a tough time convincing the 17-year-old to reject the advances of Barcelona, however, should they manage to agree a fee with Zagreb.
