Everton's reported move for teenager Nikola Vlasic has not been ruled out by his Hajduk Split president.
Midfielder Vlasic, 19, has been a regular first-team player for the Croatian side since making his first-team debut at the age of 16, and reportedly attracted Everton's attention in the recent Europa League play-off tie between the sides.
When asked about a possible Everton bid, Hajduk president Ivan Kos told Split newspaper Slobodna Dalmacija: "The transfer window runs until August 31, sometimes transfers happen a minute before midnight. We don't want to lose one per cent of our quality.
"We also have to think about financial stability."
Everton are to bid around £10m for the youngster, according to national newspaper reports, and such money could tempt a club who missed out on a Europa League place with their defeat to the Toffees.
Kos said: "I don't like to talk about things I cannot say with certainty. We'll keep track of how things are going."
