Mateo Kovacic has certainly struggled at times during his season-long loan from Real Madrid this season, with many questioning his lack of goals and assists from midfield.

The Croatia international has featured 48 times in all competitions for Chelsea throughout the campaign, but has failed to score a single goal and has just two assists to his name.

The Blues, however, are rumoured to be considering signing the midfielder on a permanent deal this summer, after it was confirmed last week that Chelsea would be able to purchase the Croatian despite their impeding transfer ban.

And amidst reports that Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain are lining up a bid for N’Golo Kante this summer, signing Kovacic could be an important piece of business.

Following what has been a relatively inconsistent season from Kovacic, we’ve taken a look at the pros and cons of signing the midfielder on a permanent basis this summer.
