Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is ready to offer ousted midfielder Cesc Fabregas as part of a deal to land Inter Milan star Marcelo Brozovic, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Spanish star has been on the sidelines of the action so far this season as the Blues have won their first three Premier League games under the former Juventus trainer.
N’Golo Kante’s industry has been preferred to Fabregas’ guile by Conte, with the former Barcelona playmaker’s future at Stamford Bridge now seemingly under threat.

Brozovic has been linked with a move to the Premier League over recent transfer windows and it could well be time for the Croatia international to end up in England.
Inter have signed Ever Banega, Joao Mario and Antonio Candreva this summer and as such the former Dinamo Zagreb star could well be on the sidelines for Frank de Boer’s side.
The report suggests that Fabregas could well find a new home in Milan if the deal goes through, with Brozovic’s more direct approach in Conte’s gaze.
