Tottenham Hotspur are believed to be tracking Aberdeen defender Slobodan Rubezic after a scouting mission to Scotland.

Aberdeen centre back Slobodan Rubezic is thought to have put himself on Tottenham Hotspur’s radar.

The Sun reports that Ange Postecoglou has instructed Tottenham to scout in Scotland.

Postecoglou led Celtic for two years, so he already has a respectable understanding of the Scottish game.

But with one fresh name in the mix, the Australian wants Tottenham to stay abreast of the potential up north.

Tottenham Hotspur attracted to Aberdeen defender Rubezic

According to The Sun, Ian Broomfield, a Tottenham scout, observed Aberdeen center defender Slobodan Rubezic in play.

Even though Rubezic has only been with Aberdeen for a few months, he is making waves.

With Postecoglou searching for more defensive options, Tottenham now seems eager to find them.

Though Eric Dier hasn’t played a major role in the plans, Micky van de Ven and Cristian Romero have developed a strong partnership.

That leaves the door open for another signing with Rubezic now on the radar ahead of 2024.

Who is Tottenham target Slobodan Rubezic?

Originally from Belgrade in Serbia, Rubezic played for both Cukaricki and Vojvodina in their youth divisions.

Before returning to Serbia with Novi Pazar, Rubezic went on to Arda Kardzhali in Bulgaria.

During the summer, Aberdeen made a move to sign Rubezic, offering him a mere £200,000 in exchange for Pittodrie.

Rubezic, a massive 6′ 4″ defender, doesn’t currently appear to be a typical Postecoglou defender, but he is still young and may grow.

Rubezic’s teammate Stefan Gartenmann, who told The Press and Journal that the defender has “everything to be a top defender,” clearly sees big things in the player.

Gartenmann went on to say that if Rubezic keeps improving, he will become a “big name in the making,” projecting great things for him.

Rubezic just switched to playing for Montenegro and made his international debut against Lebanon in October.

Rubezic is a possible gem that Tottenham may have discovered, and they will probably keep an eye on him going forward.
