Čop leaves the Croatian champions Dinamo Zagreb on loan to Italian top flight side Cagliari, with the Serie A club having first rights to buy him in the summer.
Čop joined Dinamo Zagreb in 2012 after a spell in Split and went on to win two league titles, scoring 60 goals in 110 appearances for the Maksimir club. His form earned him a call up late last year to the Croatian national team. In September 2014 he played in a friendly match against Cyprus, and also in November in London, in a friendly against World Cup runner-up Argentina.
The Croatian first division also lost goal scoring machine Andrej Kramarić from NK Rijeka this month to English Premier League side Leicester City. (photo / Drago Sopta HNS)
