Arsenal contact Inter Milan over Croatia midfielder – report

Arsenal are in the hunt for Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, according to reports in Italy

Arsenal have made contact with Inter Milan over the availability of their Croatia midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, according to reports in Italy.

La Gazzetta dello Sport – as quoted by Football Italia – are claiming that the Gunners are interested in the 23-year-old midfielder following his impressive performances for the Serie A outfit at the European championship.

The same story reports that Inter value their Croatian starlet at around £25m (€30m) as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his midfield options ahead of the 2016/17 Premier League season.

The Arsenal manager has been linked with a number of players in the summer transfer window, but thus far, Wenger has only added three new names to his Gunners squad.

The Frenchman strengthened his midfield options with the signing of Borussia Monchengladbach and Switzerland star Granit Xhaka ahead of the European championship.
