Milan Badelj with Croatia

The agent of alleged Tottenham Hotspur target Milan Badelj has been speaking about his client’s future in an interview with the print edition of Corriere Fiorentino (14/06/2016).

The quotes were later published online by Tutto Mercato Web and they are likely to be of interest to those Spurs fans hoping to see the Croatian international sign for the club in due course.

The 27-year-old defensive midfielder played 35 games for Fiorentina last season and he has featured 72 times for them to date. However his agent Dejan Joksimovic has suggested his future is likely to be away from Florence.

“There are top European clubs ready to do important jobs for Badelj,” the agent is quoted as saying. “After Euro 2016 there will be important news.

“But at the moment I think it is hard to think of a future in purple for Milan.”

A recent report from Calcio Mercato claimed Tottenham are interested in signing the defensive midfielder this summer and that he would cost in the region of £8million if they do make their move, while the latest print story from Corriere Fiorentino also link Mauricio Pochettino's side.

And while any interest from North London remains unclear, it seems apparent from his agent’s comments that there are sides set to make a move once Croatia’s participation in Euro 2016 is over.
