Recent reports from both England and Croatia have stated that Tottenham Hotspur and Hajduk Split are about to agree on a transfer for Luka Vukovi.
The 16-year-old is allegedly poised to sign a contract with the north London team, according to Sportske Novosti.
According to reports, the defender and his family have already gone to London to undergo a physical with Tottenham, and the news has the city of Split “buzzing.”
The center back must wait till he turns 18 years old in February 2025 before traveling to England. In other words, because he won’t be qualified to apply for a work permit to play in the UK, Spurs won’t be able to have him at the club until the summer of 2025.
Before he is qualified to join Tottenham, according to Sportske Novosti, there are a number of issues with his future that need to be resolved.
Vukovi might continue to grow at the Croatian team, though Ange Postecoglou’s team might decide to loan him out to another team in the upcoming transfer window.
As of right now, the teenager will remain with his current job at least through January, and his time there may be extended depending on what chairman of Tottenham Daniel Levy and president of Hajduk Luka Jakobui have decided.
‘Sources confirm’: £30m player now expecting to leave in January, after Spurs made deadline day move – Romano
Trevoh Chalobah allegedly intends to leave Chelsea in January after Tottenham Hotspur tried to sign him on deadline day, according to Fabrizio Romano.
In his most recent YouTube video, Romano spoke on the future of Chalobah following Tottenham’s interest in him over the summer.
Micky van de Ven was a summer addition that helped Ange Postecoglou strengthen his defense, but he would have preferred to add at least one more center-back.
Alfie Dorrington and Ashley Phillips, two young players, have been left as backup alternatives for Cristian Romero and Van de Ven, according to the Australian manager.
After being left out of every matchday squad thus far this season, Eric Dier has been frozen out under Postecoglou.
Though Trevoh Chalobah was a goal, Spurs did make an attempt to sign a new center-back on the deadline day earlier this month.
Furthermore, according to Romano, Chalobah plans to depart Chelsea in January.
Chalobah set to leave Chelsea in January
Romano said in his most recent YouTube video that Chalobah rejected a £30 million transfer to Nottingham Forest on deadline day.
While Spurs were unable to sign the 24-year-old after failing to trade Eric Dier, Bayern Munich was also interested in him.
Romano anticipates Chalobah to leave Stamford Bridge in the upcoming transfer window.
Tottenham was a possibility in the final hours before the transfer deadline, but nothing tangible happened because Tottenham didn’t trade Eric Dier because they wanted to make room for Chalobah, according to the source in charge of transactions.
But in the past 24 hours, we’ve heard that Chalobah has rejected a permanent transfer from Nottingham Forest and is already very sure he won’t play for Chelsea.
According to what I’ve heard, Chelsea agreed to a proposal and desired Chalobah to join Forest. The club hasn’t officially informed Chalobah that he won’t be playing for Chelsea again, though, at the same time.
Chalobah plans to leave Chelsea in January, according to reports, which makes the player’s message quite obvious. Therefore, there is a perception among the club and the players that Chalobah would depart Chelsea due to some circumstance.
The English center-back is feeling that way, and according to my sources, Chalobah will depart Chelsea in the near future.
Chalobah has struggled this season while playing for Mauricio Pochettino and doesn’t appear to be in the former Tottenham manager’s plans.
Under Frank Lampard, the Englishman made his debut for Chelsea, and Thomas Tuchel frequently utilized him as well.
However, it appears that his time in West London is running out, and Spurs are rumored to be interested.
It will be interesting to see if Tottenham decides to renew their interest after being linked to a move for Bournemouth’s Lloyd Kelly in January.
