Daily Jutarnji list reports that Varešanović, who is one of the most promising young players to come out of Bosnia and Herzegovina and has caught the attention of many big clubs around the world, has already appeared as a guest player for Dinamo Zagreb at tournaments in Germany and Croatia. Mirza Varešanović, Dal’s father, has told the daily that he would have nothing against his son, who recently spent a few days at Liverpool;s academy in the UK, continuing his development at Dinamo Zagreb’s youth academy.

“Dal spent a few days training there, he played against Wigan, scored two goals and impressed the English. But, nothing has been decided yet,” Mirza told Jutarnji list, not hiding the fact that he would rather see his son at Zagreb’s Maksimir stadium, than at Anfield or the Nou Camp.

“Dal has outgrown Sarajevo and he needs a more professional level for his development. I think that could be Dinamo Zagreb who produce talent like a conveyor belt,” said Mirza, adding the Zagreb’s proximity to home and the fact that there would be no language barrier were important when weighing up the offers which also include Spanish giants Barcelona.
