Euro 2008: Who will you support? Tottenham
Luka Modric
Despite having been one of the most sought-after players in Europe, many Tottenham fans will know little about Croatia's midfield playmaker and the club's massive new signing.

Bought for around 16.5m, Luka Modric has been lauded as a rare talent - a midfielder with an eye for a pass, a good engine, athleticism and maturity.

He may be a major reason why England are not at the championships, having played a key role in Croatia's decisive 3-2 defeat of Steve McClaren's men at Wembley, but Spurs fans will not worry about that should he impress at White Hart Lane next term.

And the championships in Austria and Switzerland will provide Spurs fans the opportunity to assess just what kind of impact the 22-year-old can have in the 2008/09 campaign.
