A journalist has detailed the possibilities Tottenham have in the face of the “incredible signing” of Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic.
Brozovic has plied his trade in Serie A with Inter Milan since 2014. He first joined on loan, before signing permanently in 2016.
In his time at Inter, the Croatian has made 302 appearances. In fact, the Serie A giants seem to have backed him for a while.
This has been shown in his performances: Brozovic has scored 30 goals and provided 37 assists in that time.
Inter would likely be keen to keep him at the club for as long as possible given the influence he has had.
However, they face the challenge of keeping him at San Siro. Premier League teams Tottenham and Liverpool have been linked with moves for the midfielder of late.
A move to Spurs would follow the path of a few Serie A players of late. In fact, Antonio Conte has brought Dejan Kulusevski, Rodrigo Bentancur and Ivan Perisic to the club.
Brozovic’s signing would mean he and Conte would be reunited following their time together at Inter.

Previous reports have indicated that Tottenham are ready to launch a ‘strike’ for the midfielder. It has also been suggested that Inter is ready to receive offers for the ace
However, Dean Jones believes that the signing will not be so easy, given the impact that Brozovic has at Inter.
“Brozovic is part of the steel of Inter Milan. He is very influential for them and brilliant,” he told GIVEMESPORT.
“I can understand why Tottenham would chase a player like that and he would be a dream addition in midfield, but I don’t see that happening.
“This would be an incredible signing and one that I can’t believe Inter Milan would allow.”
Brozovic is under contract with Inter until 2026. As such, it’s not like they desperately need to sell before losing him for nothing.
The way he is currently, it doesn’t look like he’s going to stop anytime soon. Since he is 30 years old, he could continue to play at the highest level with Inter and could end his career there.
While he would obviously be a good signing, if Tottenham could pull it off, Jones’ assessment of the situation seems fair.
Conte and Spurs hope that’s not the case as he could surely get the best out of him, while he still has a few good years ahead of him.
