Hey ed001 reports are suggesting we’re signing Kovacic for around 50 million euros (think that’s 35 million pounds), just wanted your opinion on him for Chelsea?

I really like him as a player and although he hasn’t scored or assisted for Chelsea, I think his versatility and overall game is strong. I’m not against resigning him at all!

{Ed001's Note - loads of potential but needs direction in his play. He tends to achieve little.}

That about sums it up. He's one of the most technically gifted midfielders in world football. His dribbling is immense, his passing good and his defensive workrate is also there.

But as you said, Ed, he seems to not know how to get any tangible end product out of it. He's still only 25 or so, so could potentially become world class. But for now he's a good squad player to have as he's very versatile in midfield.

Hopefully he becomes more than that.

{Ed001's Note - sorry I know my reply was a little short and yours is much better.}

I'm very happy for this deal. I hope we complete it soon.

To be fair, and not saying this is the case at all, if I had to pick between Kovacic, Jorginho or Bakayoko then I'd take Kovacic all day long.

Kovacic's versatility and technical ability is what I love the most about him, he showed under Sarri- that he can deputize for Jorginho, Kante and Loftus Cheek, so I think he can hold his own anywhere in a 3-man central (and a 2-man central midfield) . I also think Kovacic will do well under Lampard cos he's shown that he can be a very mobile on the pitch (as I heard Lampard likes very mobile midfielders with a lot of movement) . He has also shown good control of the ball in tight spaces.
J., my first pick (for central midfield) of the three midfielders that you compared is Jorginho.
