According to Index.hr, Everton are interested in signing Nikola Vlasic from Hadjuk Split and the 19-year-old would be well worth a punt this summer.

The BBC claims it will cost the Toffees around £10million to seal a deal for a player with just a year left on his contract, and while that is a relatively big sum for a teenager unproven in English football, he possesses the innate talent to excel at Goodison Park.

Everton's Dutch manager Ronald Koeman looks on during the English Premier League football match between Chelsea and Everton at Stamford Bridge in London on August 27, 2017.

Everton have made some impressive moves already this summer, and signing Vlasic would give them yet another exciting young player who could help form the bedrock of their team of the future.

Vlasic's experience in his homeland belies his age, with the teenager already racking up 119 appearances for Hadjuk Split, during which he has scored 12 goals and provided 20 assists.

Predominantly a right winger who can also operate on the opposite flank, as a secondary striker or as a centre forward, Vlasic could ultimately be one of two outstanding young wide men at Everton along with January signing Ademola Lookman.

The once-capped Croatia international's experience means he was never going to come too cheap, even with the prospect of becoming a free agent in just 12 months.

If Everton want Vlasic, they should move fast and allow him time to bed in with the next generation before ultimately making waves with the senior side.

If they do, he could go down as yet another brilliant signing in a summer when the Toffees have cornered the market in that regard.
