Chelsea are likely to have a hectic few weeks, with the Blues yet to make any major additions to the squad thus far. That doesn’t mean that the club aren’t working hard, though. In fact, Gianluca Di Marzio reported earlier this week that the Blues are interested in Real Madrid ace Mateo Kovacic. A deal is far from completion, of course, but the suggestion that Chelsea are keen on a player of his quality is a testament to their goals.
We recently asked fans whether they’d like to see Kovacic at Stamford Bridge, and it’s fair to say that they definitely would. A whopping 91% of those polled have revealed that they’d like to see Chelsea sign him, whilst just 9% are against the deal.
Kovacic has had a tough time at Real Madrid, and some fans are likely concerned that he isn’t up to the task of playing for a top European club, but it’s hard to argue for that being the case.
Kovacic is up there with Europe’s best midfielders. At 24-years-old, he’s just got his best years ahead of him, but his incredible technical ability and passing range make him a real asset in the midfield.
Chelsea need a few new midfielders, and he’d fit the bill. It would be a huge deal, given the cost that would likely be involved, but he’s the sort of player that would be worth every penny. He’s an option for the present and the future.
