Tottenham set for two-way January transfer battle, as Inter put star ‘on sale’

Inter Milan will be open to offers for Marcelo Brozovic in January, and Tottenham admire the midfielder, according to reports.

Brozovic has been a regular for Inter since joining them in January 2015, but his position in the team has come under scrutiny in recent months.

The 2018 World Cup finalist made an impression on Antonio Conte when the former Chelsea boss took charge of the club last summer. However, his situation soon changed.

According to Calciomercato, Inter would have been happy to sell Brozovic over the summer. At the time, there were links with several Premier League clubs, but nothing materialised.

But there may be an opportunity for Brozovic to arrive in England in January. Calciomercato claim that Inter have put him “on sale” after Conte decided he is “no longer indispensable”.

Brozovic put in an unsuccessful performance in Inter’s loss to Milan the Derby Della Madonnina on Saturday, but the club’s decision is not a knee-jerk reaction to that defeat. The report claims they have been thinking about the Croatian’s departure for a few months.

Tottenham battling Monaco for Brozovic

When the transfer window opens in January, they will have another chance to sell him. And there is “clear interest” from Tottenham, according to Calciomercato.

Spurs were one of the clubs linked with Brozovic over the summer, amid rumours of a potential swap with Tanguy Ndombele.

But while the French midfielder eventually stayed, Spurs could still go back in for Brozovic. The report suggests that Inter would have sold for the right offer in the summer, and that will likely be the case again in January.

At 27 years old, Brozovic has plenty of experience and therefore remains an attractive proposition to several clubs. And one team are willing to rival Spurs in the race for the former Dinamo Zagreb player – Monaco.
