Everton have been linked with a move for Inter starlet Mateo Kovacic despite the midfielder recently signing a new contract with the Serie A giants, Football
It’s claimed by Sportske Novosti, a publication in Croatia, Kovacic’s homeland, that the Toffees will tempt Inter into selling the highly-rated 20-year-old with an offer in the region of €20m, which equates to around £15m. Kovacic signed a new contract with the San Siro club in early January and is tied to Inter until the summer of 2019.
Kovacic has been an Inter player since a January 2013 move from Dinamo Zagreb, the club at which he began his senior career. He played 73 times for Dinamo, scoring nine goals, and to date has recorded 82 appearances for the Nerazzurri, with eight goals to his name. This season, Kovacic has featured 24 times in Serie A, with a handful more run outs in other competitions, and has five goals and one assist.
