Chelsea and Inter are about to sit down to discuss the possible transfer of Croatian midfielder Marcelo Brozovic. La Gazzetta dello Sport claim s that the 23-year-old Croatian midfielder has now become Blues boss Antonio Conte’s priority summer target. With just six days to go until the transfer window closes, the Premier League side are desperately trying to add to their midfield ranks and with the potential departure of Cesc Fabregas, Brozovic fits the profile perfectly.
The question now is all about the costs involved to bring the player to Stamford Bridge; the nerazzurri want somewhere in the region of €25-30 million so they can then invest in Sporting Lisbon midfielder Joao Mario. It’s believed that Chelsea will try to bargain with the Italian’s with discussions due to start later today.
