Jurica Vranjes has emerged as a potential transfer target for Everton and Tottenham.
Croatian international Jurica Vranjes has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target for Premiership duo Everton and Tottenham.
According to reports in the German press scouts from Goodison Park and White Hart Lane watched Werder Bremen's 2-0 Bundesliga win at Borussia Dortmund and Vranjes was the reason for their presence.
The 27-year-old is tied to the Weserstadion until 2008 and while his days appeared numbered prior to the winter break, the tall Croatian managed to win back a place in Thomas Schaaf's starting XI in recent months and it remains unclear whether or not he is willing to fulfil his contract.
Vranjes sealed his breakthrough while playing for NK Osiek before going on to represent Bundesliga clubs Bayer Leverkusen and Stuttgart, prior to joining Werder in 2005.
