It’s a busy day for Corriere dello Sport relaying transfer news with an English angle.
On the same that day the Italian daily tipped Cesc Fabregas to quit Chelsea, the paper also believes they’ve identified Arsene Wenger’s next transfer.
In a rumour that will be familiar to many Gunners fans, the club are reportedly interested in signing Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic.
The Brozovic to Arsenal story has been circulating for over a season now. Back in January, when Brozovic was playing for Dinamo Zagreb, Arsenal had a reported €7-9m bid for the Croatian international rejected.

The 23-year-old, who is less of a holding midfielder and more of a creative type, has since joined Inter on a two year loan deal. The Italians also have an option to buy the player.
This season, Brozovic has played 12 times for Inter scoring twice.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Arsenal need to stump up 25 million euros to secure Brozovic.
Considering Arsene Wenger rarely spends money in January, while the Gunners are also tipped to sign Basel midfielder Mohamed Elneny this winter, any deal for Brozovic feels far in the distance right now.
