    Had a word today following up some 'ITK' that was posted earlier in the week. It was suggested that we were looking at a young Croatian, this intreaged me, so I got on the case.

    What I got was not totally as I expected. We are looking at another Croatian to join the Crottenham clan, however he doesnt play in Croatia!

    My boss had no names but said that he has been watched at international level as well. Im at a loss as to who it is.

    The only name I could think of was Srna, but my boss said he doesnt think its him.

    Any ideas?
    Just wondering who you guys think it could be. Petric, maybe? Hopefully a young one that i probably don't know anything about. Perhaps that right back, but he plays in croatia?

    What do you guys think?

    Lovren CB---We were strongly linked with him before he signed for Lyon and will have undoubtedly kept an eye on him. With the likely departures of Woody and Seb, we'll need a new CB.

    Perisic (Brugge)- has all but signed for Dortmund

    Jelavic (Rangers)

    Kalinic (Blackburn)

    Mandzukic (Wolfsburg)

    Maybe Olic (Bayern) been injured for most of the season though


    Just posting some names I've seen on other forums.

    T_T didn't notice the topic

    considering that this person is YOUNG, it can't be olic or petric
    i suppose it could be Ivo Ilicevic from Kaizerslautern. He is 24 years old and has already played several times in friendlies and coming on a sub. Think he plays the similar position as VDV does.

    anyway we should search in bundesliga + mention 2-3 people from other leagues

    I personally think its Lovren, even though he just signed for Lyon in January of 2010. Only 21, so he would fit the description and plays in a position that we need 1 or 2 new players, which would be CB.

    We were linked with him before he signed for Lyon, maybe our Croatian lads could put in a good word for us.

    He doesn't seem to sure who it is, so it could be a vet. Olic is the most available of all the potential Croatian targets, that's why I suggested him

    We could get Petric on a free contract cuz his contract with Hamburg expired. And also Olic said he could imagine himself playing in England. But i think it's Lovren who had a great season in Lyon and would be a great signing for us. I see the new "Vidic" in him, they are pretty similar in style of play. But Petric would be a fantastic signing also. I always wondered why he didn't move to a bigger club. Btw. he is the 4th best scorer in the Europa League(Uefa Cup) of all time and every single season in the bundesliga he scored 10 goals at least but gets injured to often in my oppinon.

    Perhaps Srdjan Lakic? He did pretty well in the Bundesliga this year, dunno if he's good enough. And if I'm not mistaken, he signed a pre-contract for Wolfsburg anyway.

    all these players spursman mentioned could be great for us or could not be good for the premier league....

    we will never know until we sign someone and let him play for us.

    Hard to say but right now the best croat attackers are mandzukic, jelavic,lakic,petric,olic.

    jelavic is being strongly linked with man united.
    mandzukic is according to their coach one of the most important player so he wont be leaving them for sure.
    petric could leave hamburg but cannot play in a 4-5-1 system.
    olic could play in a 4-5-1 system but has been out for 1 year.
    lakic signed a contract with wolfsburg
