The Daily Star have reported that West Ham and Everton will battle it out for Real Madrid’s Croatian midfielder Mateo Kovacic.
Kovacic joined the Spanish giants for £24m from Inter Milan but has struggled to establish himself at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The 22-year-old is quite versatile, with the ability to play in the holding position in front of the defence but also as a box to box midfielder.
It is said that Madrid would want £30m to sell Kovacic to an interested party, but could be open to a loan move.
Juventus could also be eyeing a swoop, but Kovacic is said to want a move to England as the playing style would suit him more than in Serie A.
