Mario Pasalic netted his 10th goal of the season at Hadjuk Split.

Exciting midfielder Mario Pasalic scored his 10th goal of the season for Hajduk Split, adding to his burgeoning reputation.

On deadline day in January it was reported that Pasalic had agreed a deal to move to Chelsea in the summer  and loaned back to Hajduk.

The club are yet to confirm the deal officially despite the player being pictured in London, and in the mean time Pasalic is busy showing why he is in demand.

The 19-year-old is already a regular for Split, and is busy showing why he is Croatia's highest rated midfield talent outside of Barcelona-bound Alen Halilovic.

The teenager netted his 10th of the season in a 4-1 loss to HNK Rikeja.

For any midfielder at professional level to reach double figures is a creditable achievement, and if and when Chelsea's deal is confirmed, it will reinforce their reputation for snapping up the best talent Europe has to offer.
