Report: Tottenham Hotspur are back in for Marcelo Brozovic

Tottenham Hotspur are back in the race for Marcelo Brozovic, according to reports from Italy.

According to Italian Sports Press, Tottenham Hotspur are plotting a £22.5 million move for Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic.

Tottenham are yet to sign anybody in this summer transfer window and, with less than a month to go before deadline day, the pressure is on Mauricio Pochettino.

Don Balon reported last month that Pochettino was keen on signing Real Madrid ace Mateo Kovacic but the trail appears to have gone cold on that one, with Juventus now also involved.

But, according to Italian Sports Press, Spurs have turned their attention toward his Croatia team-mate Brozovic, who was linked with the North Londoners earlier in the summer.

The report goes on to claim that Inter want £22.5 million for the 24-year-old, the same price reported by Tuttomercatoweb back in May which might suggest that the Nerazzurri's demands remains unchanged.

But the Lilywhites fans have experienced plenty of false dawns this summer in regards to transfers, so they will not get excited until the club itself confirm his transfer.

Brozovic, contracted to Inter until 2021, has 27 caps for his country, and nine goals in 70 Serie A appearances for the Italian giants since his move from Dinamo Zagreb in 2015.
