Deal close: Arsenal set for £13.7m January addition

BrozovicArsenal fans have been nervously gathering in the Transfer Tavern ahead of Monday’s crunch clash with Manchester City, as they nurse their hangovers after a busy mad Friday at the bar.

Corriere Dello Sport suggest Arsenal are getting their January transfer business done early, with a £13.7m prepared to sign Marcelo Brozovic from Inter Milan.

After losing Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla to long-term injuries, Arsenal are in need of midfield additions to bolster their title push.

Brozovic will be available in January with an asking price of £11.9m but Arsenal are prepared to pay more than that, which would put them front of the queue for the 23-year-old and would ensure they don’t hit any problems in negotiations.

The Gunners currently sit second in the Premier League table and can open-up a four-point lead above rivals Manchester City with a victory on Monday evening, though Leicester City’s win today means Arsenal won’t sit top of the pile over Christmas.

Whilst Arsene Wenger’s side will likely be considered favourites to clinch the title outright should they defeat City on Monday, the club know that business still needs to be done to ensure they will match their targets.

Arsenal fans, will Brozovic make you Premier League champions? Let us know in the comments below!
