Mateo Kovacic

I find it humorous that Arsenal is linked to the “new Cesc Fabregas” when they apparently turned the old one away, but who am I to judge. The Metro is the only outlet that is tying Kovacic to Arsenal. Most other outlets are tying him to Chelsea, but I like the idea of him at Arsenal.

The 20-year old Inter Milan product has netted eight times this year and his potential is quickly being converted into outright skill. While it’s reported that Everton had a 14.6 million pound bid rejected, it is also said that such a young, skillful player would only cost 18 million.

Kovacic is sort of like Dybala, he provides immediate depth at a position that Arsenal need while having enough potential to grow into the starting XI and become a future star.

For 18 million pounds, sounds like an easy transaction.
