Marcelo Brozovic’s agent has confirmed that Premier League rivals Arsenal and Chelsea are both interested in signing the Inter Milan midfielder.
The London rivals have been busy in the transfer market looking to improve their squads before the window closes on Wednesday.

Brozovic has long been linked with a move to English football and has impressed at the Milanese club since moving to Italy from Dinamo Zagreb.
The Croatia international was a rare able performer in a poor campaign for Inter last season but his role at the Giuseppe Meazza is under threat after summer signings.
Frank De Boer’s men have signed Antonio Candreva and Ever Banega, while a deal for Gabriel Barbosa is also said to be close.
As such, Brozivic is not guaranteed first-team action at the Serie A side and could well leave the Nerazzurri this summer.
Agent Miroslav Bicanic has confirmed that there is interest from the English powerhouses.
“It’s true, there are many options and we are talking about some big European clubs,’ Bicanic told Croatian media source Index.
“I heard that Chelsea representatives are in Milan and that Arsenal are also prepared to sign him.
“Inter are pushing to sell to one of these two clubs who are prepared to pay a sum that satisfies all concerned.
“However, I am currently in Zagreb and there’s plenty of time before transfer deadline day.
“The matter is not so urgent and until Marcelo signs a contract with another club, he remains an Inter player.”
