Real Madrid have offered Tottenham a deal to sign midfielder Mateo Kovacic in an effort to fund a move for Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe, according to reports.

Mbappe is one of the most in-demand players in world football with a host of clubs thought to be monitoring his progress, including Liverpool and Arsenal.

The 18-year-old’s form in his breakthrough season was incredible with 15 league goals in the 2016-17 campaign, helping Monaco win Ligue 1 and progress to the semi-finals of the Champions League.

With interest in the striker ramping up from PSG in particular, Real Madrid have made him a priority signing this summer.

The Metro claims that it could take as much as €150 million (£132m) to prise Mbappe away from the French side with Monaco holding out for as much money as possible.

And, with Mbappe set to cost a world-record fee, Real have been forced to consider selling midfielder Kovacic, according to the Evening Standard.

The 23-year-old only made 19 starts last season under Zinedine Zidane and has now been offered out to clubs around Europe, including Tottenham.
