According to reports, Newcastle are eyeing an ambitious move for highly-rated prodigy Ante Coric.
The 19 year old Croatia international has been likened to Real Madrid star Luka Modric and has been linked with the likes of Liverpool and Bayern Munich.
As reported by HITC:
“Nine years after falling agonisingly short in their pursuit of Luka Modric, The Chronicle reports that Newcastle United are preparing a bid for his long-term successor in the Croatian national team.
19-year-old Dinamo Zagreb prodigy Ante Coric is one of the most in-demand youngsters in European football with the cream of Europe’s footballing crop, from Liverpool to Manchester City, Real Madrid to Bayern Munich, all linked in recent years.
A diminutive but exceptionally gifted midfielder with an eye for the perfect pass, Coric has been labelled ‘the new Modric’ in his homeland; a homage to one of the world’s finest play-makers who, as claimed by the Telegraph, Newcastle were on the verge of signing in 2008.”
