Recently inducted on the bench of AS Monaco, Croatian coach Niko Kovac sent his managers an ambitious list of players to recruit during this transfer window!
After having almost completed the arrival of Reims Axel Disasi (22 years old), AS Monaco does not intend to stop there. Niko Kovac submitted to its leaders a list containing several big names to bring to Monaco!
World champion and Real Madrid player contacted
Topping this list is 2014 World Cup hero Mario Gotze (28). Free since the end of his adventure in Dortmund, Gotze could arrive on the rock for free. However, the German would prioritize a club qualified in the Champions League, making it more difficult for ASM. Another name high on this list is Serbian Luka Jovic (22). Author of a failed first season at Real Madrid, Jovic knows Kovac well, who trained him for 1 year in Frankfurt. France Football even announces that the Serbian striker was convinced by the coach’s speech and that he wants to join him at ASM.
But the file promises to be complicated: bought 60 million euros 1 year ago, Jovic still has 5 years of contract with the White House. And the latter does not intend to sell it off. In the event of a purchase, Monaco will have to make an enormous financial effort… The possibility of a loan cannot be ruled out. Real Madrid will decide Jovic’s future later, probably after the Champions League…. If this track fails, the ASM could fall back on another old acquaintance of Kovac, the French Sébastien Haller (26).
These high-sounding names show in any case the will of Kovac and Paul Mitchell to bring Monaco back to the top.
