Everton have confirmed the signing of Croatian Under 21 star Nikola Vlasic from Hajduk Split.
The 19 year old forward has joined on a five year deal for an undisclosed fee.
“I am very excited about the opportunity to play for this big club,” said the Croatia international.
“The Premier League is the best league in the world and this is one of the top clubs in England. It is such a big honour for me to be here.
“When I heard that Everton were interested in me, I knew straight away I wanted to come here. Whenever someone called my manager or my father, I told them I only wanted to come to Everton.
“The ambition of the Club is to ultimately play in the Champions League and I want to help achieve that goal. I believe in myself and in this team – I think we can do great things together.
“When there is a manager like Ronald Koeman who wants you, there is no need to talk about it much. I wanted to come here because of the manager, because of the big players, because of the reputation of the Club. It is the opportunity of a lifetime.
“I played a lot of games for Hajduk Split but the Premier League is something else. Playing football in England is a much bigger stage – football is number one here. I believe in myself. I want to learn from my teammates, improve and I believe I can be successful here.”
