It is understood that Serie A giants Inter Milan were willing to include the Croatian international as part of a deal to rescue Moussa Sissoko from his Spurs nightmare, but Mauricio Pochettino turned his nose up at the offer.
But just six months later, Tuttomercatoweb reports that Spurs are now more open to the idea of signing Luka Modric’s international teammate. The report states Brozovic has been put up for sale by Inter, and Tottenham may consider making a move in January with the 25-year-old understood to be on Pochettino’s radar.
Brozovic has fallen down the pecking order at the San Siro this season and has started just seven league games with Inter enjoying a superb start to the season, one which has them right in contention for a long-awaited return to the Champions League.
And it will be of interest to Spurs that Inter will reportedly ask for just £12 million for the former Dinamo Zagreb talent – a figure much less than the fee they were demanding back in the summer.
It remains to be seen whether Sam Allardyce’s Everton are still interested, with Inter dropping Brozovic’s price tag by £10 million.
But with T
But with the Toffees suffering from an overload of central midfielders, and with Steven N’Zonzi and Jean Michel Seri already on their wishlist, it appears unlikely that Spurs will face competition from Merseyside.
