According to a report in Wednesday’s paper edition of Corriere dello Sport, via sempreinter.com, Inter Milan will have to do a swap deal if they wish to land Spurs midfielder Tanguy Ndombele – with Marcelo Brozovic emerging as a candidate to make way for the Frenchman.
Brozovic, who has been linked with a move to Tottenham recently, could theoretically be offered in a swap deal – especially considering manager Antonio Conte is allegedly looking to offload the international.
Should Spurs sign Marcelo Brozovic?
Yes, absolutely world class
No, enough with the midfielders!
As per this report, the 27-year-old is out-of-favour at the San Siro with Inter potentially looking to either sell him or offer him in a player exchange.
Now, chairman Daniel Levy seemingly has a better chance than ever to snap him up before the start of the 2020/2021 season – and doing so may land Jose Mourinho a new Frank Lampard, a player who he managed twice at Chelsea and who thrived under his tutelage, netting 70 goals and providing 61 assists in 215 games.
Despite being stacked with central midfielders, Tottenham could do with Brozovic, who is an elite level player with vast experienced on the biggest stages in football.
A World Cup finalist, partnering Spurs icon Luka Modric for Croatia, Conte is well aware of his potential to be a ‘world class‘ asset despite not having any need for the player himself.
Brozovic has likened himself to Lampard in the past, he may have a point judging by his shots per game ratio in Serie A over 2019/2020 – with WhoScored noting that he has a tendency to make long range efforts on a regular basis.
Strong in playing through balls, averaging 1.2 key passes, Brozovic could move to Spurs for less than his reported £55 million-valuation in a potential swap deal – which could be too good to refuse from Levy’s perspective.
