Tottenham scout Slobodan Rubezic

Tottenham Hotspur are keeping a close watch on Aberdeen defender Slobodan Rubezic.

According to The Sun, Premier League leaders Tottenham Hotspur are keeping tabs on Aberdeen star Slobodan Rubezic as we head into 2024.

Ange Postecoglou has brought fresh life into the North London outfit and has made them a team to be feared once again. They are currently second in the Premier League standings and could retain the top spot if they win the game in hand against Chelsea on Monday.

Despite reinforcing the team last summer, Spurs are still active in the market heading into the 2024 January transfer window. Postecoglou is no stranger to the Scottish Premier League, and Tottenham scouts are now eyeing his former haunting grounds for potential reinforcements.

One player who has caught the eye is Slobodan Rubezic. The 23-year-old arrived at the SPL club last summer and has quickly established his credentials as a reliable footballer.

The centre-back can also function as a defensive midfielder if needed, and this versatility aids his technical prowess in bringing the ball out from the back. Given the football Tottenham play under Postecoglou, the trait is a perfect fit.

Tottenham already have a solid pairing at the heart of their defence in Micky van de Ven and Cristian Romero. Adding Rubezic into the mix should give Postecoglou cover when he needs to rotate the side.

The 23-year-old excels in aerial duels and has shown an affinity to win back the ball with ease. His ability to intercept passes is good news for teams who play on the counter. With the Tottenham attack once again finding their feet this season, quick transitions from the defence to the attack can open up various possibilities.

Rubezic is a full international for Montenegro and appears to have a bright future in the game. However, there are still issues for him to iron out before making the leap to the English top flight.

The 23-year-old has already picked up seven bookings in 19 appearances for Aberdeen across all competitions. Certainly, he will need to calm down a little if he is keen to impress in the highly competitive Premier League environment.
