In its part, Kovac’s representatives were in London recently and they would have sounded out Premier League clubs about possible changes to their benches this summer.

Kovac was born 52 years ago in Berlin but during his career as a defensive midfielder he was captain of the Croatian national team. As a coach, he won the DFB Pokal with Eintracht in 2018 before achieving the German double in charge of Bayern a year later. Between 2020 and 2022 he coached in Monaco.

Although his move to Wolfsburg is cautious (2020-2022), Kovac is also attracting interest from a Bundesliga club.
