Just seen the rumoured price for Kovacic to start is at 50m Euros. I hope we don't just buy him for stupid money because we can.

If the ban does get frozen one player who is available who impressed me was Tielemans on loan at Leicester. Cracking young CM who is a very good passer of the ball and has a great long range shot. I'd like to see us get him if its frozen. We need to offload Bakayoko, Pasalic, Drinkwater and Van Ginkel as others in midfield anyway.

Truly, I wouldn't pay €50m for Kovacic but IMO, I think he's very much needed in this Chelsea midfield (the guy's versatility in our midfield trips me a lot- he can play DM, RCM, LCM; you see that this season when he replaced Jorginho, replaced Kante and replaced Loftus cheek/ Barkley) . Kovacic is very good in a 3-man central midfield and 2-man central midfield, so I think many managers will like him. The guy has good link up play, can keep possession, has good ball winning ability and has good box to box runs. Most of us keep judging or comparing him to a number 10, I don't think he's a perfect number 10 cos of the lack of goals and assists in his but I think he can hold his own. Conte is smart to want him at Inter Milan at the moment cos he's just an excellent utility midfielder to have in any squad.

It doesn't strike me like Kovacic is keen for the deal to happen. I believe he should prefer Chelsea and push for Chelsea deal than the clubs that are interested in him at the moment.
Although I think that if Chelsea really wanted to sign Kovacic they should have discussed Kovacic deal before the Hazard deal, I think it would have made Real Madrid value him for less than this reported €50m.

Agreed that with proper expectations, kovacic would be a nice piece. If we keep him as a very versatile fourth midfielder he could do really well in that role and would be able to spell any of the three centremids. If you want him to perform as an elite playmaker or ball winner you will be let down. I don’t like getting into prices but a centremid who can play all three midfield roles, is young, has international pedigree, and has played for the club would be worth a decent amount. If Drinkwater is worth 30m, 50m isn’t egregious in the slightest.
