According to AS, Tottenham Hotspur want to sign Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic on a permanent deal at the end of the season.
Kovacic joined Chelsea on loan from Real Madrid during the summer, and the Croatian has made 17 appearances for the Blues in all competitions this term.
Maurizio Sarri’s side are expected to make a bid to sign the Croatian on a permanent deal this summer, but according to AS, Tottenham are hopeful of being able to bring the midfielder to the club.
Which team is the dominant force in London right now? Playmaker FC’s Tom Skinner has a very unpopular opinion on the matter. Check it out in the video below…
The news has not gone down too well with a number of Spurs fans, however, with the majority against a move for the Croatia international.
Mauricio Pochettino’s team will be in the market for at least one new midfielder at the end of the season, but the Spurs supporters do not want it to be Kovacic, who is a three-time Champions League winner.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the club’s fans can be seen below:

Would rather hijack Everton for Gomes, he is running that midfield like he has been there for years, looks a classy player, don’t know why we didn’t get him after being linked all summer
