Tottenham Hotspur fans have urged the club to sign Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic, after failing in attempts last year with Kovacic now stating he is looking for a move elsewhere.
Kovavic made his feelings known after Croatia’s 3-0 win against Argentina, revealing he is no longer happy to sit on the bench watching his club teammates.
He said: “I want to play more and the best thing is to leave Madrid. I love football and being on the pitch. I want the opportunity to be a starter on another team. If I do not play, I’m not happy.”
The Croatian midfielder made a brief cameo against Argentina – as Croatia ran out 3-0 winners – and it looks like his recent comments have alerted Spurs.
Spurs were looking to sign Kovacic last season but they failed in their efforts. However, it seems that Spurs and Daniel Levy may be tempted into making another bid for the midfielder. It’s been reported that they will have to spend £44m on the 24-year-old as this is his release clause, and Spurs fans want the club to sign him at all costs.
Here’s what Spurs fans had to say about the rumours.
Kovacic has also been linked with a move to Premier League rivals Manchester United meaning that it’s likely Spurs and United will be battling each other for the midfielder’s signature this summer.
