Promising striker Tomi Juric has been lured to Western Sydney Wanderers on a two-year deal as coach Tony Popovic sets about tweaking his Premiers’ Plate winning side for next season.

Juric, who turns 22 in July, made five starts - and two appearances off the bench - for two goals during his short-term deal with Adelaide United at the back end of last season and will push strongly to fill the void left by Croatian striker Dino Kresinger, who was cut by the club last month after its grand final loss to Central Coast Mariners.

The Sydney-born youngster of Croatian extraction had two other A-League clubs also vying for his signature but didn’t hesitate when the Wanderers came calling.

The 189cm Juric, who scored on his debut for the Reds in a 2-1 loss to Sydney FC, is known for his energy and physicality and scored once in 12 appearances for Croatian top tier NK Inter Zapresic before his stint with the Reds.

The other pit-stops on his blossoming career were Croatian second tier clubs NK Lokomotiva and Croatia Sesvete.

Popovic, meanwhile, has also lined up another import from Croatia, where he is currently on a scouting mission to help fill the spots left after the exits of Kresinger, Joey Gibbs, Tarek Elrich and Rocky Visconte.
