Dinamo Zagreb’s 17 year old wonderkid Alen Halilovic seemed destined to sign for Spurs recently but a breakdown in personal terms has seen him become available once again.
According to Croatian reports, Halilovic will end up in London, either at Chelsea or Arsenal.
The report states that Arsene Wenger is willing to give his father a role at the Arsenal academy, whilst Jose Mourinho is willing to spend more to bring the young star to Stamford Bridge.
The attacking midfielder has already broken into the Dinamo Zagreb first team and has featured in the Champions League, coming up against PSG and Porto.
