The greatest Tottenham players to have featured for the club in the Premier League.
10. Luka Modric
When Daniel Levy met Dinamo Zagreb director of football Zdravko Mamic, the Spurs chairman had a clear message: “I’ve come to Zagreb to take Luka Modric to Tottenham. If I don’t do that now, we will never meet again.”
Levy knew what a special talent the Croatian was and Spurs fans soon found out. After initially being labelled ‘lightweight’, Modric soon settled into life in the Premier League and began running the show in Spurs’ midfield. The pass-master was courted by Chelsea in summer 2011 but Spurs refused to sell and he eventually joined Real Madrid the following year for £27m.
