Real Madrid are moving for Inter Milan midfielder Mateo Kovacic.

Sky Sport Italia says Real coach Carlo Ancelotti has spoken to Kovacic's agent, Nikky Vuksan.

The Whites' coach is looking for reinforcements in the centre of the park, and the young Croat is one of the favoured options.

He is turning to Kovacic after PSG informed Real they would not consider selling Marco Verratti.
