Real Madrid have rejected a £22 million bid from Tottenham for midfielder Mateo Kovacic, according to reports in Spain.
The 23-year-old has been linked with Spurs for a number of weeks now by the British tabloid press and a number of foreign outlets, but not many reliable UK sources have picked up on the story.
Spanish publication AS claims Tottenham’s latest offer of £22 million has been turned down by Real Madrid, but Mauricio Pochettino remains keen on Kovacic.
The Croatian is a teammate of former Spurs midfielder Luka Modric for both club and country. Below you can watch Kovacic score his only La Liga goal to date.
