Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are interested in signing Marcelo Brozovic with the Croatian international’s time at Inter Milan seemingly coming to an end, according to Calciomercato.

Brozovic has been a key player under Luciano Spalletti this season, starting 25 Serie A games with Inter hoping to return to the Champions League for a second successive season.

But Calciomercato believes that the 26-year-old could be sacrificed in the summer with the Nerazzuri hoping to rebuild their midfield with the likes of Barcelona’s Ivan Rakitic and Cagliari starlet Nico Barella.

 

Calciomercato adds that North London rivals Spurs and Arsenal are interested in offering Brozovic a second chance and would be willing to pay the fee that Inter are demanding for the former Dinamo Zagreb youngster.

Croatian publication Jutarnji List claimed in August 2018 that Tottenham had failed with a £36 million bid for Brozovic while offering him a £100,000 a week contract.

Inter rejected the offer then, however, demanding that Mauricio Pochettino’s side pay £9 million more to trigger his release clause.

A £45 million fee would make Brozovic Tottenham’s record signing while it remains to be seen whether Arsenal could pay this much with funds tight at the Emirates.
