Chelsea fans haven’t had much to get excited about this summer, but a recent report from Gianluca Di Marzio may be good enough to do just that. The Italian journalist has revealed that the Blues have made initial contact regarding a move for Real Madrid ace Mateo Kovacic.
Kovacic has been a bit-part player for Madrid over the years, and he’s currently away with Croatia at the World Cup. A talented midfielder, he’s at his best when he’s being creative – passing the ball around, dribbling forward and bringing the ball towards the opposing goal.
In truth, he offers a lot of quality that Chelsea lacked last season. A big problem for the Blues last term was their inability to create from midfield – and Kovacic would be able to bring that back to Stamford Bridge.
Unsurprisingly, the mood there is one of jubilance, with fans desperate for their club to sign the Croatian midfielder. Some fans are touting him as the perfect player for their midfielder, whilst one has described him as the next Luka Modric.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
