Arsenal back in to try and sign creative midfield star

Arsenal have returned to Inter Milan to enquire about the possible capture of Marcelo Brozovic this summer. The Croatian international enjoyed an impressive European Championships alongside Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic, although the Arsenal chief has long been in the know when it comes to his potential and talent.

We were linked with his capture prior to his initial loan move to Inter, when he was starring for Dynamo Zagreb in his home country Croatia, while Chelsea were formerly linked with a move to try and sign him previously also.

He has only this summer become a permanent fixture for the Italian club, having paid a pre-agreed fee to sign him come the end of that initial 18-month loan deal, although his club are believed to be willing to sell him on.

Inter are claimed to be in want of €30 Million to part ways with their young midfielder, having signed him for a reported €5 Million fee only this month.

Arsenal have already signed Granit Xhaka to play at the base of midfield during the current window, but with Tomas Rosicky, Mathieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta having all left at the end of last season, there is space in the squad for replacements.

Mohamed Elneny was only signed back in January, and plays in a similar box-to-box style as Brozovic, although the Croatian has been said to be versatile in playing roles in different formations.

Brozovic’s team-mate Mauro Icardi has also been linked with a switch to the Emirates this summer, but looks as though he could be sold to Napoli instead, with their main striker Gonzalo Higuain set to join Juventus.

Do we really need more central midfielders? Is our failure to add a new striker thus far changing our transfer plans? Who rates Brozovic?

    Yes definitely sign him! Only then we can start the season with this traditional 4-2-4-0 formation:

    Cazorla – Özil – Brozovic – Ramsey
    ———— Xhaka – Coquelin
    Monreal – Koscielny – Gabriel – Bellerin

    If Gabriel is still injured, throw in Wilshere as well!

    Opinions divided. What do you think? Thumb up 19 Thumb down 14

      I like Ivan Perišić better than Brozovic, if it has to be 30M

    I don’t understand. Are we so obsess with midfielders? At least we should be getting rid of some midfielders if we wanna sign more of them..

    Lacazette and Mahrez won’t hurt.. .oh well, I can only dream…

    These rumours of central midfielders are silly (Sissoko and Brozvich)

    We have Coquelin, Cazorla, Xhaka, Eleney, Ozil, Wilshere, Ramsey, Chambers, Iwobi, Ox can play B2B, also youngsters Zelalem and Bielik

    I guess its okay to get Brozoich or Isco for the future because they are young 23 years old

    BUT we need to put priorities in order
    1. Striker
    2. CB
    3. Winger

    Also if you spend £25-30 million on a CM then that decreases our Warchest for the other players we need.

      Really when you look at that midfield its pretty packed full of talent, youth and experience. Good depth,makes me feel fuzzy. No other team on paper is as strong in CM . Sell on some of our forwards and freshen up there, we will be very dangerous.—depending on injuries 😀

    IMO no we don’t need him unless Wenger fix the other top priorities. If news about BFG is true then we desperately need new experienced CB. Also, we need different striker then Giroud and/or Winger like Mahrez who can score and create space. If Wengers fix these positions first then whatever he signs will be plus but I don’t want him to sign another MF without signing CB, CF and Winger.

      BFG out for 5 months with knee injury!
      Just the rumour of Mertesacker being the new captain has cursed him big time 😲

    Does Mr Wenger understand that this season will be so intense that if you lose like 2-3 of your first 5-6 games you could be out of the title race…considering we won’t have Sanchez,Giroud,Welbeck,Ozil,Merts,Gabriel for the first 2-3 games we are actually in trouble…

    Oh to be a Gooner

    This article does not mention that Inter have new cash rich chinese owners, they do not need to sell anyone. If Marcelo Brozovic is good and worth £30m why would they sell him. Similarly why would they sell their top scorer Icardi to napoli.

    Inter used to have financial problems, hence these made up stories which the journalists are too lazy to even put in the context of the new ownership situation. The only financial worries inter have is how to get round the ffp rules, stadium rename and a few sponsorship deals will sort that out.

      If we plan to Buy Mahrez, it would be far better to pay a 15-20 million for a player very similar to Mahrez and would become better in an arsenal squad SOFIANE BOUFAL, guarantee goals, free kicks out side the box, also penalties in the box and put fear in defenders

      Saving millions to do other purchases, another cheap but promising buy would be SEBASTIAN HALLER, reminds me very much NICOLAS ANELKA with physical presence and pace
