Roma to battle Arsenal for Inter Milan star Brozovic

Arsenal will face competition from Roma for the signature of Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, according to the player's agent.

Arsenal are in the market to sign a new midfielder this summer following the departures of Mikel Arteta, Tomas Rosicky and Mathieu Flamini, and it was been reported that manager Arsene Wenger had identified Brozovic, who was on loan from Dinamo Zagreb, as his primary target.

However, it looks like Arsenal will face competition in the race to sign Brozovic as the player's agent Miroslav Bicanic has gone on to reveal that Italian giants Roma are interested in the Croatian international.

Bicanic told Italian outlet Corriere Giallorosso: "Roma are interested in Brozovic, but that is not news from today.

"Roma have been interested for a long time.

"We do not have the possibility to speak to other clubs until Inter give us authorisation."
