Inter are ready to consider selling midfielder Marcelo Brozovic at the end of the season, with Juventus joined by Premier League club Chelsea in tracking him.
As reported in today’s newspaper edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport, the emergence of Hakan Calhanoglu as a deep-lying midfielder this season has led to Inter being open to cashing in on Brozovic.
The Croatia international has missed much of the season through injury, allowing Calhanoglu to drop deeper and flourish in his new role, and the Nerazzurri have identified him as an opportunity to bring in much-needed funds.
Inter need to make sales in the summer and are expecting to move wingback Denzel Dumfries on, but this may not be enough to balance the books.
Brozovic is no longer considered unsellable, particularly as his wages of €6.5 million per year are amongst the highest at the club, and will demand €30m for him.
Chelsea are looking for a replacement for N’Golo Kante as he approaches the end of his contract, whilst Brozovic has also garnered interest from Real Madrid, and could be a replacement for compatriot Luka Modric.
Elsewhere, Barcelona have also been linked with Brozovic earlier in the January transfer window.
