Reports: Arsenal keen on signing £21 million-rated midfielder

Emirates Stadium

Arsenal is reportedly interested in Inter midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, according to the Daily Star (via La Gazzetta della Sport). Inter is reportedly trying to sell Brozovic to help fund a possible transfer of Axel Witsel.

Liverpool is also reportedly interested Brozovic who is expected to be sold for a transfer fee of about £21 million.

Brozovic is a 23 year old box-to-box midfielder who is able to defend fairly well, but also has the ability to get forward to create chances. In 32 league games last season Brozovic scored 4 goals and had 5 assists.

Arsene Wenger continues to flirt with the idea of adding an additional center midfielder despite already having a good group of midfielders to work with.

Brozovic would likely be a good player for Arsenal, but midfield is not currently their biggest position of need.

Brozovic does appear to be on his way out at Inter, but a move to the Gunners does not seem particularly likely due to Arsenal’s current depth at the position.
