Hajduk midfielder Nikola Vlasic has emerged as a surprise target for Everton in the summer transfer window.
Nikola Vlasic has played 119 times for Hajduk Split since signing from Omladinac Vranjic, scoring 12 goals and creating 20 assists in that time.
The 19-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Croatia.
The Croatia international has been in outstanding form for Hajduk Split last season.
Nikola Vlasic has represented Croatia at Under-16, Under-17, Under-18, Under-19 and Under-21 level, winning 29 caps and scoring 3 goals, before making his senior international debut in May 2017. As a member of Croatia national football team, Nikola Vlasic has won one cap.
The midfielder has just 12 months remaining on his contract and Hajduk Split may consider a deal in this transfer window to avoid losing him for nothing next summer.
Vlasic is high in demand this summer, with him having enjoyed a sublime season for Hajduk Split last term.
Ronald Koeman wants to sign a new midfielder this summer and Nikola Vlasic is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe.
The report claims that Everton manager has extensively scouted Vlasic and is considering a move for the midfielder.
