Dinamo Zagreb vice-president Zdravko Mamic has revealed the club rejected a bid from Barcelona for 17-year-old midfielder Alen Halilovic, per Sky Sports.
One of Zagreb's best prospects since Luka Modric, Halilovic has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur in the past, per Charles Reynolds at the Independent.
In 2008, Spurs signed Modric from Zagreb for £15.8 million, hence the speculation of Halilovic joining Tottenham.
If forced to choose between Barca and Spurs, the Catalan club—a three-time UEFA Champions League and one-time European Cup winner—would be a more attractive destination for Halilovic.
However, he is more likely to receive playing time at Spurs.
Should Spurs make a push to sign him in the summer transfer window, it would be wise to sign another Croatian who can accompany Halilovic as he transitions from life in Zagreb to life in London.
