Tottenham Hotspurs Football Club is reported to be in the race to land Real Madrid midfielder, Mateo Kovavic. The Toffees are particularly interested in the talent in a bid to boost the team, considering the decent achievement in the English Premier League (EPL) this season.
The Toffees have had a lot of injury worries of recent which could hamper their bid for the EPL title this season. They go into the crucial match against Liverpool with many first team players out injured. Mateo Kovavic has been linked to other clubs such as Sevilla but White Hart Lane hopes to complete the swoop for the talent that has fallen out of favor at Madrid.
Since Zinedine Zidane took over at the Spanish giant, Real Madrid, Kovavic has had fewer chances. Tottenham hopes to land the midfielder with the promise of constant showing at the Champions League next season.
The Croatian is great in an out and out central midfield position as well as a #10. He’s also comfortable in deep lying play. He’s had fewer chances with impressive talents such as Luka Modriç, Toni Kroos, James Rodriguez and even Isco at Madrid. Tottenham hopes to use these facts to lure him out from Spain.
The player has superb fitness level and has great prospects. His strength and pace will cause trouble to lots of defenders in the EPL. The pure talent has age on his side being just 21 years old. He could prove to be that amazing signing for Pochettino.
From rumours, the Real Madrid hopeful is not even looking the way of Tottenham despite their impressive campaign this season and Champions League spot. The allure of playing under Pochettino is purported to not even exist. If he could get convinced to join the squad, it would be a big loss to White Hart Lane for the deal not to fall through, due to the push he would provide for the team next season.
