The Croatian is on loan at Chelsea and seems to be preferred by Maurizio Sarri in the midfield over Ross Barkley.
The report claims that Real Madrid are upset with the midfielder over his “attitude” in the summer, and there have been talks about letting him leave.
Chelsea have an advantage with regards to signing the 24-year-old (h/t Express) and the Croatian has nine Premier League starts under Sarri this season.
It will be interesting going up against Chelsea for the signing of the 24-year-old. We beat our London rivals recently and Kovacic would be a great addition to the side.
We are a little light when it comes to fit midfielders at the moment, and the Croatian could fit easily into our team.
The Madrid star found it tough to get starts at the La Liga giants and his move was fuelled to get more playing minutes, as per the report.
Spurs didn’t splash the cash for any players in the summer window, but that cannot be a viable strategy for the upcoming windows too.
Chelsea might be a little ahead of us as Kovacic is playing for the Blues, but a decent bid and the possible development under Mauricio Pochettino could be enough to swing the Croatian to the Lilywhites.
