Chelsea have reportedly made an enquiry to Real Madrid over the possibility of signing midfielder Mateo Kovacic this summer.

This comes from the reputable Gianluca Di Marzio, who has dominated recent transfer windows due to his accurate and timely reporting.

Di Marzio does not go into detail, but his report is pretty concrete evidence that Chelsea would like to add Kovacic to their ranks before the start of the new season.

With Cesc Fabregas entering the final year of his contract with the Blues, it would come as no surprise if we targeted a player with similar attributes. Kovacic is exactly that.

The 24-year-old needs to depart the Santiago Bernabeu in order to further his career, and Chelsea could be the ideal springboard for the Croatian.

It remains to be seen home much Los Blancos will demand in exchange for him, but whatever the expenditure, this is a deal we should look to get over the line.
