Report: Tottenham could sign international playmaker Tino-Sven Susic for just £3 million

Tottenham have been linked to attacking midfielder Tino-Sven Susic.

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for 23-year-old playmaker Tino-Sven Susic, by The Sun.

Susic is a Bosnia-Herzegovina international and plays for Croatian side Hajduk Split.

The Sun claims Spurs have scouted Susic, and believe they could snap him up for £3 million, although there is competition from Italian clubs. 

Susic is a former Belgian under-19 international, later switching allegiances to the country of his birth.

He scored six goals last season and provided eight assists in 33 appearances for his club, which included appearances in the Europa League. 

Why Spurs do not need Susic

Susic is a talented player and bright prospect but he could face a similar fate at Spurs to Gylfi Sigurdsson and Lewis Holtby.

Christian Eriksen is a clear first choice in attacking midfield and justifiably so given his performances since joining the club two years ago.

Mousa Dembele stepped in ably last season in the role when required, even suggesting it could be his best position.

Also available and keen to make an impact is youngster Alex Pritchard, who made a big impact on loan at Brentford last season.

Either his development would be stunted by Susic's arrival or the Bosnian would suffer. In either case the potential is not one which adds up for the club despite the tempting low price being speculated.
