Inter could make a move for Barcelona midfielder Miralem Pjanic, but would only do so should they be unable to renew the contract of Marcelo Brozovic.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Il Giornale, who report that the Nerazzurri are considering the Bosnian as a potential replacement for Brozovic in midfield with the Croatian’s contract talks still yet to take off.

Brozovic is considered a vital player in the Nerazzurri squad, but his contract is set to expire next summer, and the club will hope to agree on a new deal with him soon.

If an agreement cannot be found, the 28-year-old could depart from the club this summer, in which case a direct replacement would immediately be sought.

Barcelona midfielder Pjanic is thought to be a player who the Catalan giants are intent on offloading this summer, with a return to Juventus the player’s preferred destination, but the Bianconeri will only bring him in should sales first be made.

Should Brozovic be sold, the Nerazzurri could look to pip the Bianconeri to Pjanic’s signature, though it would be dependent on the outcome of contract talks with Brozovic.
