Tottenham and Arsenal reportedly locked in a battle to sign Real Madrid star

Kovacic

The Sun reports that Tottenham and Arsenal could be involved in yet another rivalry – this time for the signing of Mateo Kovacic, a young Croatian midfielder.

The chase is on for the 23-year-old creative player, who has not managed to cement a place in the starting line-up of Real Madrid and is now open to offers.

According to the reports, he needs first-team football in order to revitalize his career, and several clubs are eyeing a move for the young star.

AC Milan, Inter Milan, and Roma are interested in bringing Kovacic back to Italy, but Premier League football could be a tantalizing incentive for the midfielder.

Spurs could be in urgent need to secure a replacement for Dele Alli, who is still weighing up his options and is not sure whether he will stay at North London for long.
