Arsenal and Chelsea have stepped up their interest in Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, according to reports in Italy.
The Croatia international has played an integral part in Inter’s challenge to finish in the Champions League spots this season, scoring six goals in 27 appearances.
Brozovic was heavily linked with a move to Arsenal in January but the Gunners decided against making an offer for the 23-year-old.
However, according to Tuttosport, the Gunners and Chelsea will battle it out to land Brozovic in the summer, with the north Londoners expected to make the first offer at £15m.
Chelsea are ready to trump the Gunners’ offer but are also understood to be keeping an eye on Brozovic’s midfield partner and compatriot Ivan Perisic.
