Arsenal and Chelsea battling for quality international midfielder

BrozovicChelsea and Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern don’t get on at the best of times, so the latest reports linking the two Premier League clubs with the same player have led to a scuffle at the bar.

TalkSport says the two English clubs have set their sights on Inter Milan ace Marcelo Brozovic this summer, with the 23-year-old likely to leave Italy if his side fail to qualify for the Champions League.

Arsenal have held long-term interest in the Croatian ace and need midfield recruits this summer, as they’re set to lose Mikel Arteta, Mathieu Flamini and Tomas Rosicky upon the end of their contracts, whilst Chelsea are in need of a major reshuffle.

The Blues are set to be managed by former Juventus boss Antonio Conte for next season and the Italian is ready to raid his home nation for talent, with a host of names from the Serie A linked with a move to Stamford Bridge.

With the price of a deal at just £15m, it’s an easy figure for the Premier League side’s to meet.
