Arsenal & Tottenham interested in Jedvaj, claims agent

The in-demand Croatian defender has been strongly linked with Roma but his representative says the north London duo are in contact with Dinamo Zagreb over a possible switch
Arsenal and Tottenham are both chasing the signature of Dinamo Zagreb youngster Tin Jedvaj, the defender's agent has claimed.

The 17-year-old has attracted interest from Roma in recent weeks after a successful breakthrough season at the Croatian outfit last season, also prompting a call-up to the full international squad.

7/1 Tottenham are 7/1 with William Hill to finish as the top London club next season
Jedvaj's agent, Zoran Ban, revealed Roma were previously close to sealing a deal, with the two north London club's in contact with Dinamo over a possible switch.

Ban told "At a certain point, Dinamo raised their demands whilst Roma wouldn't improve theirs.

"Meanwhile, clubs like Arsenal and Tottenham have called Dinamo and they are dealing with them.

"Would I say Roma are out of the game? In football you never know, anything can still happen."
