Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with Ante Rebic, but what do you need to know about him?

According to reports emanating from Italy and later picked up by Talk Sport, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in Fiorentina forward Ante Rebic.

Spurs have been linked with a whole host of attacking options in recent weeks, with Mauricio Pochettino seemingly intending to strengthen a front-line that is not currently performing as he would have hoped.

So for those Tottenham fans eager to know more about their latest alleged target, here are five facts to get you started:

1) Rebic was born in Croatia in 1993. He began his youth career at Vinjani in 2002 before moving to RNK Split eight years later.

2) The player started his senior career at RNK in 2011, going on to make 57 appearances for them. In that time he scored 16 goals and provided six assists.

3) In 2013, the reported Tottenham target signed for Fiorentina for an undisclosed fee. He has made five appearances for the senior side, scoring two goals, but more recently he has been on loan at German side RB Leipzig.

4) Rebic is predominantly a left-winger but he can also operate effectively as a secondary striker or a centre-forward, and this versatility is likely to be attractive to the likes of Tottenham.

5) The 21-year-old has represented his country at every level from under-18 to the senior side. He made his senior debut in August 2013, and he currently has seven caps and one goal.
