Brozovic: 'Arsenal and Chelsea interest'

Marcelo Brozovic’s agent confirmed interest from Chelsea and Arsenal, as “Inter are pushing to sell him to one of these clubs.”

The versatile Croatia international midfielder must be sold to raise funds, as today Gabigol and Joao Mario arrived for a combined cost of €70m.

“It’s true, there are many options and we are talking about some big European clubs,” agent Miroslav Bicanic told Index in Croatia.

“I heard that Chelsea representatives are in Milan and that Arsenal are also prepared to sign him. Inter are pushing to sell to one of these two clubs who are prepared to pay a sum that satisfies all concerned.

“However, I am currently in Zagreb and there’s plenty of time before transfer deadline day. The matter is not so urgent and until Marcelo signs a contract with another club, he remains an Inter player.”

Juventus are likely to lean back towards Brozovic after PSG slammed the door on Blaise Matuidi, but Inter are determined to sell him abroad rather than reinforce a Serie A rival.

Roma are also prepared to push hard for Brozovic, but only if they sell Leandro Paredes.

The Nerazzurri are asking for €30m for Brozovic.
