One journalist has detailed the chances that Tottenham have regarding the “unbelievable signing” of Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic.
Brozovic has plied his trade in the Serie A for Inter Milan since 2014. He joined firstly on loan, before signing permanently in 2016.
In his time at Inter, the Croatian has racked up 302 appearances. Indeed, it seems the Serie A giants have backed him for some time.
That has shown in his performances – Brozovic has scored 30 goals and provided 37 assists in that time.
Inter would likely be keen to keep him at the club for as long as possible, given how influential he has been.
However, they face a challenge in keeping him at the San Siro. Premier League sides Tottenham and Liverpool have both been linked with moves for the midfielder of late.
A move to Spurs would follow the path of a fair few Serie A players of late. Indeed, Antonio Conte has brought Dejan Kulusevski, Rodrigo Bentancur and Ivan Perisic to the club.
Signing Brozovic would mean he and Conte would reunite, following their time together at Inter.
Tottenham told chances of Brozovic snare
Previous reports have stated that Tottenham are ready to launch an ‘onslaught’ for the midfielder. It has also been suggested that Inter are ready to welcome offers for the ace.
However, transfer insider Dean Jones feels the signing won’t be quite as easy, given the impact Brozovic has at Inter.
“Brozovic is part of the steelwork at Inter Milan. He’s so influential for them and brilliant,” he told GIVEMESPORT.
“I can understand why Tottenham would be going after a player like this and he would be a dream addition to the midfield, but I just don’t see it happening.
“This would be an unbelievable signing and one that I just can’t believe Inter Milan would allow to happen.”
Brozovic is under contract with Inter until 2026. As such, it is not as if they desperately need to sell up before losing out on him for nothing.
With the form he is in currently, it does not look like that will stop any time soon. Given he is 30-years-old, he could continue to play at the top level for Inter, and might well finish his career there.
While he would obviously be a good signing, could Tottenham pull it off, Jones’ assessment of the situation seems a fair one.
Conte and Spurs will hope that is not the case, though, as he could surely get the best out of him, while he still has a few good years ahead of him.
