Tottenham set to beat Arsenal to £11.5m midfielder – report

Tottenham are leading the race to sign Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, according to Tutto Mercato Web

Tottenham Hotspur are the favourites to sign Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, according to Tutto Mercato Web.

The 23-year-old had been linked with a move to Tottenham’s bitter rivals Arsenal in recent months as Arsene Wenger sought to strengthen his midfield options at the Emirates Stadium.

However, the Gunners are thought to be on the brink of signing £33.1m-rated Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Granit Xhaka after the Swiss midfielder was photographed in Arsenal’s new kit.

According to Tutto Mercato Web, Spurs are now leading the race to sign Inter star Brozovic, although Premier League champions Leicester City are also keen on the Croatia international.

The playmaker joined Inter on an 18-month loan deal from Dinamo Zagreb in 2015, and he has impressed with a return of four goals and five assists in 32 Serie A appearances this term.

Arsenal beat Tottenham to a second-place finish this season after a 4-0 victory over Aston Villa on the final day of the season.
