West Brom Join Tottenham Hotspur in Race to Sign £13.5m-Rated Dinamo Zagreb Defender

Tottenham Hotspur will face stern competition from West Bromwich Albion in their bid to sign Dinamo Zagreb’s £13.5m-rated defender Filip Benkovic.

The 20-year-old – according to a report published by Daily Mail – has supposedly been linked towards a summer move to Spurs, although now that the Baggies have allegedly entered the battle for his signature, the north Londoners will have to move fast if they’re to button down his services once and for all.

West Brom may see themselves as the frontrunners in the race, however, as the opportunity for more first team opportunities for Benkovic under Tony Pulis is seemingly more plausible, with Tottenham’s defensive ranks already well established.

Pulis has been looking for a central-defensive partner for Jonny Evans; Middlesbrough’s Ben Gibson is said to have been a possible target, but now, the young Croatian is thought to be the more economic choice of the two.
