Report: Irons make bid for Real Madrid midfielder

Reports in Italy claim they West Ham have submitted a formal bid for Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic.

The report on Tuttomercatoweb.com claims Serie A clubs including Roma, Juventus and Napoli are also tracking the midfielder as well as several unnamed Premier League teams but says the Hammers are the only club to submit an official offer.

Kovacic wants to leave Real Madrid this summer after three seasons in which he has featured mostly as a substitute.

He was signed by Rafa Benitez in the summer of 2015 for a fee in the region of €30 million.

The Croatia midfielder has made 109 appearances in his three seasons and won nine trophies, including three Champions League crowns. However, he has more often than not been left out of the side for the most important matches of all.

  1. Excellent strength, stability and great change of direction but in nearly all of those clips he holds onto the ball too long, like watching a stronger Joe Cole, could be a great fit for us if Pelle can teach him when to release the ball would be world class.

  2. It’s ok being linked to these sort of players but it’s Sullivan,s wallet that won’t open to pay for these players. I’ve lost count how many players were in for or close to signing

  3. But it’s only paper talk, not from any club source. You can’t believe everything you read . It will surely drive you crackers mate.
