Arsenal join Chelsea and Man Utd in race to sign classy midfielder

Arsenal is set to battle with rivals, Chelsea and Manchester United for the signature of Inter Milan’s Marcelo Brozovic.

After following up the free signing of Sead Kolasinac with the club record signing of Alexandre Lacazette, the Gunners are determined to keep the momentum and land all their targets before the new season approaches.

Their recent stop is in Italy where they hope to beat rivals Manchester United and Chelsea to the signing of Marcelo Brozovic.

Brozovic is a long-term target for Jose Mourinho who personally watched him and his international team-mate Ivan Perisic during the international break.

Inter Milan need to sell some of their players to balance the books if they want to avoid being sanctioned by UEFA for breaking the Financial Fair Play rule. The Nerrazuris are desperate to keep their best players to avoid playing catch up with city rivals Milan who have been strengthening their squad.

Arsene Wenger sees Brozovic as a rugged player that would help his team as they compete in the more physical Europa League this season.
