Arsene Wenger is reportedly keen on bolstering his side in the January transfer window for the second half of the 2015/2016 season.
Arsenal rivals Manchester United have joined the Gunners in the race to sign Croatian midfielder Marcelo Brozovic.
United Boss Louis Van Gaal followed the footsteps of his Gunners counterpart in admitting at the beginning of January that he was open to the idea of new players in the ongoing transfer window.
United were understood to be after creativity in the market as they struggle to break down opposition. According to talkSPORT via the Metro United scouted Brozovic during his time at Zagreb and are still keen on the Croatian international.
The midfielder’s agent confirmed that Brozovic was interesting Premier league sides. ‘Premier League clubs know him very well, they believe he can improve a lot in the next few years,’ Miroslav Bicanic told Calciomercato.
‘They also know he’s not cheap though. Marcelo is happy at Inter, he’s playing well, the fans love him and everyone at the club believes in him. Milan is fantastic.
‘So we’ll only think of a transfer if Inter give the green light. Until then, he’s focused on Inter matches, and how to get the best possible results this season”
The Croatian has been continuously linked with a move to the Emirates with several reports claiming Arsenal were waiting for his move to San soro to be made permanent before making their offer. Inter boss Mancini has however warned his side aren’t looking to sell him.
