Loads of Tottenham fans have been reacting to the latest transfer update, and they’re all begging the club to make a major move for Mateo Kovacic.
Spurs fans have been growing increasingly frustrated with the saga to try and land Jack Grealish, and they’re now eyeing a change of plan altogether.
According to Gianluigi Longari (via Last Word on Spurs), the rumours of Spurs’ interest in Kovacic were true.
The Real Madrid ace was linked with a move to Tottenham after he publicly asked to leave Madrid in search of regular playing time, and Longari has now confirmed the North Londoners interest.
“There was a call last month with Tottenham Hotspur (regarding Kovacic), but nothing concrete,” Longari said.
“We will see what happens, given that the market is in complete evolution, especially at Real Madrid.”
Real Madrid are undergoing some serious transfer turmoil after the loss of Cristiano Ronaldo, and there’s a real possibility that they clean house and develop some of their young stars.
Marca claims Kovacic is available for €60m (£53.3m), and fans are praying the club just forget Grealish and sign the Croatian superstar instead.
The last time Spurs had a technically gifted Croatian in midfield it went pretty well, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…

These are the types of player that a champions league side should be looking at. A top player. Maybe even on loan if they would accept that.
