TS: Inter in a hurry for Soriano, Wenger wants Brozovic.
A meeting between Erick Thohir and Sampdoria president Ferrero is planned for this afternoon. It will be an opportunity to discuss transfers, mainly the one of Roberto Soriano.
“Inter are evidently in a hurry to settle the grounds for the negotiations to avoid a bidding war in the coming months. Last summer Soriano was very close to Napoli and he is followed by both Milan and Juventus. Therefore it is better to hurry up. Sampdoria value Soriano around 15 million euros, a fee that Inter could lower by inserting some player like Dodô or Ranocchia who are there on loans. But there is also a different strategy.”
According to Tuttosport the different strategy means selling Marcelo Brozovic to Arsenal.
“Last month Arsenal made another enquiry with Inter, but the club preferred keeping Brozovic and instead sold Guarin to a Chinese club. In summer the situation will change, depending on Champions Leagu qualification and the need to redeem players.”
The Croatian seems the one that is deemed most expendable since Icardi, Murillo and Miranda are off the market. With 20-25 million Wenger could get the Inter midfielder to Arsenal.
