Report: AC Milan in talks with Dinamo Zagreb concerning transfer of Tottenham target Vinko Soldo

Tottenham have been scouting Vinko Soldo this season, but Milan are in talks to sign him.

As reported by TMW, Milan have sent officials to Zagreb to talk with Dinamo concerning the potential transfer of Vinko Soldo, who they want to bring to the San Siro this summer.

The Rossoneri, however, are not the only club who want to sign him, and it was the same media outlet who reported on interest from Spurs last month, with the Lilywhites’ scouting him for much of the campaign.

The 17-year-old centre-back has yet to make an appearance for Dinamo, but is highly rated in their youth system, and in Croatia’s Under-17 side. He made his debut as a 16-year-old, and has now wracked up 15 appearances for his nation.

He played every game for his nation at the recently concluded Under-17 European Championship, as Croatia finished in fifth place. They went out on penalties to Belgium in the quarter-finals, conceding just one goal in their five games - with Soldo at the heart of those great defensive performances.

Impressively, Croatia have yet to lose a game in open play since Soldo has been a member of the side - and he has captained them as well.

Spurs were scouting him during this tournament, and although they were said to be planning a summer move for him, Milan have officially opened formal talks for Soldo.

There are no confirmations as to whether the Lilywhites also intend to approach the youngster, but having impressed so well recently, it would come as a big surprise if the North London club were not preparing an offer for a player who is bound to have a bright future.
