Report: Inter Milan hoping to sell Marcelo Brozovic to Arsenal

Inter are hoping to sell Marcelo Brozovic to Arsenal this summer.

Inter Milan are hoping to sell Marcelo Brozovic to Arsenal this summer, and take advantage of the Gunners' long standing interest in the player.

Tuttomercatoweb report, citing a report in daily newspaper Tuttosport, that Inter are keen to cash in on the Croatian international in order to fund their own move for Sampdoria midfielder Roberto Soriano, and see Arsenal as Brozovic's most likely destination.

Brozovic, 23, is a central midfielder who has the ability to play in a more attacking role, but is perhaps more similar to a Santi Cazorla in style than a Mesut Ozil.

The prospect was linked with a move to Arsenal in January, with La Repubblica claiming the Gunners were preparing a £18.3 million bid for his services.

He was touted as a potential Gunners signing even before signing for Inter, with The Mail reporting in 2014 that Dinamo Zagreb claimed to have rejected a £6 million offer from Arsenal. He moved to Inter six months later.

Brozovic had a mixed start to the season for Inter but is coming into form, with two assists and a goal in his last three games.
