The Inter Milan ace has reportedly been attracting attention from Tottenham Hotspur for quite some time.

According to a report from Italian media outlet Calcio Mercato, Inter Milan want to sign Tottenham ace Moussa Sissoko this summer, and should the Serie A giants make a formal approach for the Frenchman, Mauricio Pochettino could use it as an opportunity to snare a long-term target of his.

According to Croatian newspaper Jutarnji List, Spurs sublimated a £36 million offer for Inter ace Marcelo Brozovic in the summer, one that was rejected, and it is believed that he would cost closer to the £45 million mark.

 

That amount probably makes him unattainable for Tottenham, but with Inter's reported interest in Sissoko, they should be able to barter a deal for the Croatian.

The 26-year-old is a really classy player, and he operates in the deep-lying midfield position.

Whilst Sissoko has played well this season, Brozovic would surely be an upgrade on the 29-year-old.

Having lost Mousa Dembele to China last month, Tottenham need someone who is composed in possession and can carry the ball from deep, and the Croatian fits the bill perfectly.

Whilst Inter would probably not entertain a straight swap for the two players, considering their age difference, they will surely be tempted into selling Brozovic for a reduced fee, if Sissoko is sent in the opposite direction.

And the Croatian would be an excellent addition for Tottenham.
