Mateo Kovacic has been one of the names mentioned in the transfer gossip pages this summer, and that is set to continue after his latest comments.
The Real Madrid midfielder has admitted in an interview with Marca that he needs to move on in order to gain regular game time.
“I understand the situation, but because of that I believe the best thing for me would be to go to another club where I’d have the opportunity to play regularly as a starter. I think I can have this opportunity and it’s one I want right now.”
Last season, the Croatia international, who has earned 43 caps for his country, started just 10 La Liga matches last season.
With Zinedine Zidane no longer manager at the Bernabeu, there is always a chance that Kovacic could revive his career with the Spanish giants, but it seems that he has made up his mind.
Tottenham Hotspur seem to be in the market for a new midfielder, and the rumours are likely to ramp up if Mousa Dembele leaves the North London outfit.
Kovacic’s admission suggests that there could be a scramble for his signature over the next few weeks, and Spurs fans are determined for their club to get involved.
