Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino will surely be looking to bolster his ranks during the transfer window this month, with his side still competing in three major competitions.
One particular area of concern for the Argentine will be central midfield, with Victor Wanyama and Mousa Dembele both proving to be unreliable from a fitness perspective, and with the latter on the wrong side of 30, the addition of a younger midfielder will surely feature highly on Poch's wish-list.
According to TuttoMercatoWeb, the Tottenham manager is lining up a move to sign Inter Milan ace Marcelo Brozovic, with the Italian outfit valuing him at around £12 million, and for that price, the Lilywhites could be on the verge of securing a sensational deal.
The 25-year-old Croatian is a wonderful passer of the football, and possesses superb stamina levels, which makes him the ideal candidate to compete with Dembele, before eventually replacing him at Spurs.
Brozovic moved to the San Siro from Dinamo Zagreb in the summer of 2015, and has impressed for the Nezaruzzi, chalking up 17 goals and 11 assists in 95 appearances in all competitions.
The Croatian international is an all-round midfielder. He is a competent tackler, and has impressive vision, combined with a vast array of passing skills.
He is equally as effective going forward as he is playing the more disciplined holding role, and he would be an outstanding signing for Tottenham, especially for just £12 million.
