Chelsea have joined Arsenal in the race to sign Inter Milan star Marcelo Brozovic, according to reports from talkSPORT.
Brozovic has been heavily linked with a move away from the Giuseppe Meazza the past few months, with the Gunners thought to be extremely interested in the Croatia international.
With the likes of Mikel Arteta, Mathieu Flamini, and Tomas Rosicky set to depart in the summer transfer window, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been looking at central midfield options and sees Brozovic as an ideal candidate.
However, Italian paper Tuttosport has claimed that Chelsea are also chasing the 23-year-old’s signature and are ready to beat any offer made by the Gunners.
It is believed that £15million will be enough for Inter to accept, but his switch will likely depend on whether the Nerrazurri qualify for the Champions League next season, with Roberto Mancini’s men currently fifth on the table, five points behind AS Roma in third.
Brozovic has made 27 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring six goals.
