Agent claims international Arsenal & Chelsea target being forced out

Miroslav Bicanic has claimed that Marcelo Brozovic is being forced out of Inter Milan.

The Croatian international is set to jet off to France for the European Championships, but may be distracted as his future lies in the balance.

Brozovic has had an extremely impressive season with Inter, attracting supposed interest from Chelsea, while Arsenal had been linked with a move for the midfielder prior to his switch to Italy.

The 23 year-old was believed to have been on 18-month loan deal from Dinamo Zagreb, but the story seems to claim that Inter own the rights to his signature, and are looking to sell.

“If [Inter director] Piero Ausilio went to England, that means he plans to sell him,” Miroslav Bicanic said, according to Sky Sport Italia.

“Marcelo is torn at the moment because he likes Inter and enjoys living in Milan, but he wants to play in the Champions League.

“My personal opinion is that he would stay if Inter offered him a new and improved contract, which is something he deserves, on the same level as the best players in the squad.

“So far the club has not given us the impression they want to do that, so I’m drawing conclusions that they possibly want to sell him.”

Brozovic is a midfielder who can play various roles in a team, but is favoured in playing in a box-to-box capacity.

We appear to be extremely close to completing a deal for Granit Xhaka,  although both Mathieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta have both just left the club, making room for new arrivals.

I would love to see Brozovic come in, but I see him as a similar player to Mohamed Elneny, which could put off Wenger. We may have to settle for watching him play for Chelsea, which I believe would be a painful site…

Should we sign him anyway?

    OT: Can we make Rosicky a statue or sth? That guy deserved much more recognition. Cant imagine if he stayed injury-free for even just one season.
    We have been so unlucky with injuries these years. The young Ramsey, Diaby, Rosicky, Mert, RVP, Cazorla, Wilshere, Sanchez..etc they all could have made a huge difference to our season. I feel fore Arteta as well. I thought we could have helped Arteta ends his career on a high note by lifting the BPL Title. That guy might not be the best player around, but definitely a great captain and person.
    Anyway.
    COYG.

      First of all i want to say that i love rosicky as much as all the other fans resp. football fans but with rosicky there is always this thing i consider as an overaffection he was a great player for us but does he really deserve a statue? a statue is something for absolute legends like DB10 TH14 AW etc. but rosicky was a likeable dude and was unplayable on his day.. we had a lot of guys like that just that rosicky has this special “charme” that you love him anyway..

      and in regards to rosicky, guys who criticise giroud oxlade etc. solely based on stats and at the same time admire rosicky should look at his stats in his years with arsenal if they have time on their hand.. again i love rosicky, he is the iniesta type… brilliant player but somehow assists and goal-wise pretty low stats :/ i have no plan why

    With Xhaka, Elneny, Ramsey, Wilshere, Cazorla I dont see the need for another b2b player. Getting another DM would be wise but I dont see Wenger getting one with Xhaka filling that position

    We should get another quality CB and top goalscorer
    We desperately need a high scoring clinical finisher

    Top Gooner!. Agree or not?: Thumb up 19 Thumb down 0

    Players like Brozovic only
    want to play for Arsenal
    because of the salary scale.
    Brozovic is paid 20 k p/w
    so would get 40k p/w at least at Arsenal a 100% increase.
    We don’t need him, we have Xhaka Coquelin and Bielik
    and could get an English player like Reece Oxford
    for half the price and half the salary.
    Top class goal scorer and top CB please.
