Inter Milan sporting director Piero Ausilio has confirmed that they are open to selling midfielder Marcelo Brozovic if an offer is made for the Croatian international.
The 27-year-old has been linked with a move to Chelsea in both the Italian and English media over the past couple of months, with some claiming that Mateo Kovacic has recommended his international teammate to manager Frank Lampard.
Ausilio says Brozovic has had some disciplinary issues this season which has made the Nerazzurri more open to offloading the midfielder were a bid to be made:
“Brozovic understood that some of his behaviour was wrong during the season and some situations were dealt with behind closed doors at the club. He is one of the players we are relying on, but if an offer were to arrive that suited the player, we’d take it into consideration.”
Chelsea are not the only team reportedly interested in the Croatian, with Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool, Tottenham, Manchester United and even Manchester City having also kept tabs on the player.
It’s likely that the Blues are considering Brozovic if a move for Declan Rice doesn’t work out. Currently, West Ham are asking for £75m for the England international, which is seen as excessive.
