Gareth Thomas Football 1 Comment

Mateo Kovacic is a target for Manchester United, Arsenal And Liverpool come the January transfer window and according to the Daily Express, the Croatian will only cost £10m!

Mateo Kovacic is only 20-years-old and joined his current club Inter Milan from Croatian club Dinamo Zagreb. Kovacic began his career with LSK Linz and then moved to the Dinamo Zagreb in 2007. He made his first team debut for the club in November 2010, playing 43 league ties, scoring 7 times as he won 2 Prva HNL titles.

Inter Milan purchased Kovacic in January 2013 for €11m initially (with €4m depending on Champions League qualification). He was given the number 10 shirt and has since played 58 Serie A games for the Italians. Last season, Kovacic played 32 times of 38 in Serie A and has been important so far this campaign.

However it seems new Inter boss Roberto Mancini is willing to let the 19 capped Croatian leave to fund some of the deals he has planned for January. Kovacic’s contract is set to at the end of the current season so Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool will all try their best to tempt him to the Premier League, whilst Real Madrid seek to bring him to Spain.
