Mateo Kovacic wanted by three Premier League clubs

Published Add your comment

Arsenal are ready to join Manchester United and Liverpool in the race to sign Inter Milan starlet Mateo Kovacic, reports the Daily Express.

The youngster only joined Inter Milan last summer but has struggled to gain a foot in the first team. However, he has still shown enough ability to attract the interest of the Premier League trio.

Reports in Italy suggest that all three of Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United sent officials to Italy in the final days of the season and are now prepared to offer the 20-year-old the chance for a swift San Siro exit.

Arsenal were reportedly ready to drop their interest in favour of more established targets but it seems the late scouting report has convince Arsene Wenger to maintain an interest.

If Manchester United and Liverpool, who both go into the summer with healthy transfer budgets, make an official move, Wenger will have to consider responding.

However, it remains a fact that Inter Milan are not keen on selling the youngster and the player himself has also made his intentions clear: he wants to stay.

Quoted in the Express, Kovacic said recently: "The press have to write something. I may be young but I have learned so far that journalists must speculate on something every day.

"But all that is not a burden for me. I have a contract until 2017 and my future is with Inter.

"I'm really happy that I'm part of such a great club.

"So all I'm thinking right now is how to become better player, how to help my team to get much better results.

"I'm young, so I have a lot of time. And I'm still adapting.

"But I'm happy and also everybody at Inter are happy with me. And that counts the most to me."
