Reported Tottenham target Mateo Kovacic is set to have a medical with Chelsea today ahead of a loan move to the Blues, according to Sky Sports News.
Spurs were linked with the Croatian midfielder when it became apparent he was no longer in the plans of Real Madrid.
The 24-year-old went on strike this week in order to try and force a move away from Madrid.
It seems Chelsea will allow their number one goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to leave for Los Blancos giving the Spanish club an incentive to allow Kovacic to leave.
Spurs fans have demanded their club to sign a new midfielder after Mousa Dembele looked set for the exit.
Although Dembele now looks set to stay, Tottenham still have a number of injury-prone midfielders which could do with backup.
However, a move for Kovacic looks dead in the water despite the so-called ‘special relationship’ with Real Madrid with a medical at Chelsea set for later today.
Spurs fans, what do you make of Kovacic and has the club missed a huge opportunity?
