Chelsea and Arsenal are ready to battle it out for Inter midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, according to the player’s agent.
Brozovic’s representative Miroslav Bicanic said the 23-year-old is gaining big interest from the Premier League before Wednesday evening’s deadline.
“It’s true, there are many options and we are talking about some big European clubs,” Bicanic told Croatian tabloid Index.
“I heard that Chelsea representatives are in Milan and that Arsenal are also prepared to sign him.”
‘However, I am currently in Zagreb and there’s plenty of time before transfer deadline day. The matter is not so urgent and until Marcelo signs a contract with another club, he remains an Inter player.’
A central midfielder, Brozovic was a key player for the Nerazzurri last season, making 32 Serie A appearances and managing four goals and four assists.
Juventus have also been linked with the Croatia international, so it may not be plain sailing for the London sides to complete his signing.
