Mateo Kovacic joined Chelsea on loan from the European champions last summer transfer window, on a deal ending at the end of the current season.
According to reports, the Croatia international is eager to extend his stay in the Premier League and remain at west London club next campaign.
The report claims that Mateo Kovacic has had no promises from the Blues about a permanent deal, which would first require the club to sort out some off-field issues.
But the emergence of Ruben Loftus-Cheek lately will decrease the Croatian’s chances of staying at Stamford Bridge while the Englishman has scored a last-minute winner to beat struggling Cardiff City and the netted against Brighton and Hove Albion to seal the 3-0 win for the struggling Blues.
Maurizio Sarri looks to have reshaped his side as his men do not have time to lose points to weaker clubs and need to maximise their efforts to enter the top four.
