Chelsea would be interested in Marcelo Brozovic if Inter Milan put him on the market, according to reports.
Inter are currently planning a clearout to raise funds for signings of their own. One of the main names on their wishlist is Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante.
Former Blues boss Antonio Conte reportedly wants a reunion with the French midfielder – despite sporting director Piero Ausilio claiming otherwise.
However, Chelsea would consider letting Kante leave if a suitable offer comes in. A fee of around €50m could tempt them – but the midfielder could be key to improving Chelsea’s weary looking title odds in Italy with the likes of NetBet.
If Inter are serious for Kante, they will need to clear up space in the squad first. Hence, Corriere Dello Sport (via Sport Witness) claim there are several players they are looking to sacrifice.
One of the players who could leave Inter is Marcelo Brozovic. The 27-year-old midfielder is happy at the club, but they may choose to sell him anyway.
The Italian newspaper claims that Chelsea would have an interest if Brozovic went on the market. Likewise, Bayern Munich would consider a move.
Chelsea have already strengthened their midfield by signing Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech this summer. If they managed to sign Brozovic as well, it would be another transfer coup, given that Liverpool had been considering him as well.
The Croatian midfielder had been suggested as an alternative to Thiago Alcantara at Anfield. There had also been talk of a potential swap deal with Tottenham for Tanguy Ndombele.
Six more on Inter hitlist
Brozovic is one of seven players Corriere Dello Sport suggests could leave.
The club are exploring permanent sales of Ivan Perisic and Radja Nainggolan, both of whom spent last season out on loan.
Defender Diego Godin could leave the club after failing to make an impression in his first year there. And midfielders Roberto Gagliardini and Matias Vecino could leave to make room for Kante.
Inter are also looking to sell full-back Dalbert – who has been mentioned as a possible target for Premier League clubs.
