Mateo Kovacic reveals transfer talks with Chelsea over Josko Gvardiol

The Blues are thought to have approached the 20-year-old during the last transfer window as part of their world record £273million spend.

The defender remained at the Bundesliga club despite the interest but Kovacic acknowledged that he would love to see his Croatia teammate at Stamford Bridge.

“At the club, they asked me about Joško, I told them all the best,” Kovacic said at Stadion Maksimir. “I don’t need to say anything about his football, they know what kind of player he is, and his character is excellent.

“I have seen in the national team how eager he is to play, he has a great career ahead of him, and I hope that one day we will play together in the club.”

Chelsea face Dinamo Zagreb tomorrow where the duo started their careers before moving to Europe’s big five leagues.
