Croatia’s brilliant performance against a rather poor Argentinian side saw them confirm their spot in the World Cup Round of 16 following a well-taken goal by Ante Rebic before Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic finished the job in style. Ante Rebic’s goal attracted serious attention and now Tottenham appear to be planning a move for the Eintracht Frankfurt winger according to The Daily Express.
Mauricio Pochettino has lacked squad depth in recent years with Spurs, but the signing of Lucas Moura saw a change in that. Ante Rebic is expected to be his next addition with a move in the region of £26m looking likely. The 24-year-old has so far already impressed at the World Cup scoring an important goal against Argentina following a horrendous error from Willy Cabellero as well as helping his side to a 2-0 victory over Nigeria in the opening game.
The winger has been on loan at Eintracht since 2016 and scored two important goals against Bayern recently in their 3-1 Cup triumph. His contributions ended Eintracht’s 21st-century trophy drought and Tottenham will be hoping that he can make similar contributions towards their continuous hunt for glory. Frankfurt are reportedly open to letting him go as long as the right price can be agreed upon which is rumoured to be around £26.3m.
The North London club don’t typically spend big in the transfer window but if they are to challenge for trophies in the 2018-19 season, they’ll need new signings coming in especially with the potential departures of Alderwiereld, Sissoko and Rose.
Rebic will be hoping to continue his excellent World Cup campaign and potentially score a few more to possibly increase the money in the deal. In this day and age though, £26m isn’t exactly a big money move and if he does get firing for Spurs he could be one of the bargains of the season.
So Spurs fans, let us know your thoughts on the potential arrival of the Croatian star, Ante Rebic. Do you want him or do you need to be signing more proven stars if you are to challenge for the Premier League title? And is £26m a good deal or would you prefer to see that money invested in other areas? Let us know your answers to all these questions @AllOutFootball_ or using the #AOF.
