Dobra Eyed By Dinamo Zagreb
Friday, 29th Jan 2021 11:19
TWTD understands Croatian champions Dinamo Zagreb are keeping tabs on Blues youngster Armando Dobra.
The 19-year-old’s profile across Europe has been boosted by his involvement with Albania’s U21s with Dinamo, who currently lead the Croatian top flight by three points as they look to win their fourth successive title, among those keeping a close watch on his progress.
With the January window closing on Monday, it seems unlikely that Dinamo would look to firm up their interest before the summer if they choose to do so.
Dobra’s potential has attracted plenty of clubs playing at higher levels than the Blues over the last couple of years with TWTD having revealed a year ago that Town had turned down a bid, believed to have been £350,000, from Brighton and Hove Albion.
We understand Southampton are also among those to have previously shown interest along with Italian side Atalanta and Ukrainian league leaders Dynamo Kyiv.
Dobra, who scored twice for the U23s in Tuesday’s 2-2 draw with Colchester, signed a contract with the Blues in May last year which runs to the summer of 2023 with an option for a further season.
The London-born number 10 or wideman has made eight first-team starts and six sub appearances for the Blues, scoring twice.
Dobra is among the young players Town would like to get out on loan before Monday's deadline but with nothing currently on the cards, although League Two Bolton did show interest earlier in the window.

Power of Motivation by LegendRay
The strangest and most disappointing aspect of this season has been lack of bounce.
Demolition Man by tractorboykent
Paul Cook isn’t a man to mince words. Even though we are all sick of the continuing spiral of underachievement at Town, it was nevertheless still a bit of a shock to hear him lay into the 18 that capitulated to Wimbledon in what he described before kick-off as a season defining match.
Here We Go by tractorboykent
For a club recently described as Britain’s unhappiest, it may seem odd that Town fans are suddenly awash with optimism now that the deal is done.
One of the Strongest Squads? by NormEmerges
I keep hearing that ITFC has one of the strongest squads in League One. It’s certainly true that we have one of the biggest squads, but strongest? I would assume ‘strongest’ to mean ‘includes higher quality players for this league’. What do the facts tell us?
Tractor Boy on a Mission by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
