Tino-Sven Susic eyes Premier League deal

HITC Sport understands that Bosnian ace is keen to seal move to England

Tino-Sven Susic is being targeted by a host of Premier League clubs as he looks set to shun interest from Italy, Spain and France, HITC Sport understands.

The 23-year-old has emerged as one of the hottest prospects in Eastern Europe, starring as both a defensive midfield and winger in recent seasons.

Belgian-born Susic joined Hajduk Split in 2012 from Standard Liege as a winger but he struggled before Igor Tudor converted him into a defensive midfielder - where he shone.

After establishing himself as a holding player, he was thrust back into a forward role the following season due to a number of injuries and he rediscovered his form for going forward and he has not looked back.

He featured at the World Cup in 2014 for Bosnia and now he has emerged as one of Hajduk's key performers.

At the start of 2015, Inter Milan almost completed a deal to sign him but they instead signed Marcelo Brozovic from rivals Dinamo Zagreb.

Now despite further interest from Italy and also clubs from Spain and France, HITC Sport understands that a number of English clubs are now looking to do a deal this month.

His UK representative Bruno Serafim confirmed to HITC Sport that there has been firm interest, but as yet a deal had not been agreed.
