Kovačić wants permanent Chelsea stay, doesn’t think Hazard wants to leave either

Lets hope the bit about Hazard is true, yeah Kovacic could play in that Jorginho role imho , going forward he dosn't bring much to the xmas table , playing him ,Kante,Jorginho together week in week , week out ,will see us in trouble as has been the case recently.

Have not been impressed with him. Disappointing really. 

Doesn't take enough risks, plays far too safe and is scared to shoot and go towards goal. Very tidy with the ball, but only passes sideways or backwards, 

He is quick enough and talented enough to push forward and give it a go.

Mateo Kovacic’s superb highlights from this month

https://www.chelsea-news.co/2019/01/video-mateo-kovacics-superb-highlights-month/

Mateo Kovacic has impressed since arriving at Chelsea, and his influence in midfield has been notable alongside Jorginho and N’Golo Kante.

His silky dribbling skills and the way he wears the 17 remind people of Eden Hazard, and that’s clear in this video showing his best efforts from the last month.''

There are some great moments in there, he just needs to start finding the net too to become a really complete midfielder.

See those tasty highlights here:

I like what I have seen so far but he still has a bit to prove. Not sure how possible it will be to sign him come the end of the season, especially as talks of Barella etc are going about.

Not convinced, think he needs another season in the Premiership, at times when he dribbles I genuinely thought it was Hazard who had the ball and knits things together well but he lacks the extra bit of sharpness for me, I don't know if that comes with being paired with other midfield options.

If we have the opportunity to sign him for £30-35m in the summer, in today's market, I think it'd be good business. Even though he has much more than Barkley, I put them in the same category right now, decent options, nothing special, does in and around enough but nothing more.

If we are signing Barella, he will go back to Madrid.

Unless you get him for a discount.

I thought he was a replacement for fabregas as well as backing up  jorginho or kante. RLC could be out for a while and barkley hasn't been playing well.

Would like to see him in the Jorginho role. He’s comfortable with the ball and can play under pressure. That would free up his position to a more attack minded midfielder like Loftus-Cheek in the Hamsik role. Right now he doesn’t really offer much offensively and like Barkley, plays it way too safe.

Kovacic has been quite disappointing lately. He's obviously incredible talented but you barely even notice that he's on the pitch because he doesn't do anything with the ball

i think thats what the whole team lacks. that bite! No intensity. No 2nd gear.

We also have some good passers. Luiz,Jorgi,Kovacic. All good. But we dont get many of the lads moving into space off the ball. Yesterday you watch. Kovacic was always looking to see where Willan was. Amd the one time someone tried to get into space Luiz played a spot on ball to Pedro.

We do have the ability to play well but its just getting that ooomph and passion thats missing.
