High-profile Croatian agent Nikky Vuksan isn't surprised the Premier League's biggest clubs are watching Dinamo Zagreb starlet Milan Badelj.

The 22 year-old has been likened to Vuksan's client Luka Modric, the Tottenham midfield star, and has been watched regularly by Spurs and Manchester United scouts season.

Badelj was mooted for a £9 million move to Old Trafford in the summer and Premier League interest has continued to bubble this term.

Vuksan told tribalfootball.com: "Milan Badelj is another great talent that has come out of the Dinamo Zagreb football academy.

"He has become a Croatian National team player in the past year and I can say it is not surprising to me that some of the biggest clubs in Europe are monitoring his performances."
