Arsenal nearing deal for Inter Milan star Brozovic

Arsenal are believed to be closing in on Inter Milan's Marcelo Brozovic.

Italian publication Corriere dello Sport is reporting that the Gunners are preparing a £16million for the midfielder who is on loan with the Nerazzurri from Dinamo Zagreb.

Arsene Wenger is set to offload ageing midfielders Mikel Arteta, Tomas Rosicky and Mathieu Flamini this summer and is seeking apt replacements.

Inter are keen to land Brozovic permanently from Dinamo but the club's current financial situation indicates that they may struggle to agree a fee with the Croatian club, leaving Arsenal a free path to go after the 23-year-old who has impressed in Serie A this term.
