Tottenham on brink of beating Chelsea and Man City to 'top transfer target' but baffled fans all have the same question | The Sun

TOTTENHAM are set to beat off competition from Premier League rivals to sign one of the world's highest-rated young defenders.

That is none other than Hajduk Split's rising star Luka Vuskovic, 16, who has earned comparisons to Barcelona legend Gerard Pique.

According to transfer insider Fabrizio Romano, Spurs are on the verge of landing the centre-back.

He says the North Londoners have agreed personal terms with the Croatia Under-17 international.

And all the necessary paperwork is being finalised between the two clubs.

According to The Mail, Vuskovic has previously been linked with Chelsea, Liverpool, Newcastle and Manchester City.

The Premier League giants sent scouts to watch the Croat in action during the 2022-2023 UEFA Youth League.

City even tabled an offer for the defender in March worth £10million with a further £2m in add-ons.

However, Vuskovic only wants to move to Tottenham and the transfer is almost complete.

Fans, though, have been left confused as the summer transfer window in the Premier League slammed shut on September 1.
