Luka Modric will hope to help Croatia qualify for the quarter-finals of Euro 2012 when they play Italy on Thursday in Poland.
Croatia made the perfect start to the tournament when they defeated the Republic of Ireland 3-1 and will be looking to qualify from a group that included the current European champions Spain and the always dangerous Italy.
Modric was instrumental in the first group game and should he impress against Italy then it is certain that the transfer rumours will persist, with Paris Saint-Germain the latest to be linked with the midfielder.
It was only a few days ago that The Sun reported that Modric was set to join Manchester United in a £25million deal, but it seems they will not be the only club looking to sign the diminutive creator.
The Daily Mail believes that PSG scouts watched the player in action against Ireland on Sunday and they have now added Modric to their wish list as they attempt to wrestle the Ligie 1 crown away from Montpellier.
It is a difficult time for Tottenham fans with reports today suggesting that Harry Redknapp's position at the club is under threat, despite the former West Ham man denying such rumours.
Certainly all does not seem to be well at White Hart Lane, but Spurs fans will be hoping that the club follow the example of last year when they turned down a number of bids for Modric from Chelsea.
