Chelsea are monitoring the situation of Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, according to reports.
The Blues could make a move for the Croatian next summer, who would be available on a free transfer.
As per Tuttosport via Sport Witness, Chelsea along with PSG are looking to sign the midfielder on a free transfer.
The Blues would be willing to make a move for the Croatian if he refuses to sign a contract extension with the Italian club but Pari Saint-Germain could also try and tempt the midfielder to Paris.
It was previously reported that Chelsea were willing to offer a ‘hefty’ package to Brozovic, who has been on their radar for quite some time.
However, it was also reported that Brozovic wants to stay at his current side as both parties work towards a new deal for the primarily defensive midfielder.
Chelsea already have an abundance of talent in their midfield options. N’Golo Kante and Jorginho recently picked up UEFA awards for their outstanding performances, with Mateo Kovacic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek also featuring for Thomas Tuchel’s side this season. Saul Niguez is spending the season on loan in London too, and could make a deal difficult for Brozovic if he stays net season
the Blues and PSG have made a ‘serious approach’ to find out the possibility of taking the midfielder on a free transfer next summer.
It was also explained the player’s father, Ivan, who is also his agent, is set to meet the Italian club this week to discuss new contract.
Tuttosport now claim the Serie A winners’ intention is to secure the Croatia international’s long-term future ‘as soon as possible’, in order to stop him from leaving the club as a free agent.
The 28-year-old is happy with his life in Milan, both on and off the pitch. Ivan, along with the family’s trusted lawyer, will meet the Milan leaders.
Although the player’s representatives are unlikely to demand more, there seems to be an optimism of reaching a successful conclusion.
Thomas Tuchel’s side continue to monitor the situation and should they find out talks between Brozović’s camp and Inter aren’t progressing well, they are ‘ready to sniff out the deal’.
In order to convince the San Siro star, the west London club are ready to offer him a ‘hefty’ package.
With Chelsea in the background, the Nerazzurri must be cautious when negotiating with the midfielder’s entourage.
