The agent of Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic has hinted that Premier League and La Liga sides are keen on his client.
As reported by The Sun, Arsene Wenger is keen on bagging the 23-year-old, while the tabloid note that Jose Mourinho was also reportedly keen on the midfielder, although following the Portuguese coach’s departure, it remains to be seen if Chelsea remain interested in the Nerazzurri star.
The player’s agent [CalcioMercato via The Sun] has acknowledged both that there has been Premier League interest in his client, and that Brozovic is keen to further his career, potentially at a new club.
“He was looking for a bigger club than Dinamo Zagreb to prove his potential, and Inter wanted substance and freshness in midfield,” the representative began, discussing the 23-year-old’s switch to Lombardy in the last January transfer window.
“After a year, we can say it was the right decision for both parties. Now he’s a top player,” the agent continued.
“He’s improved to a European level, and has confidence in his ability to further improve. Other clubs will see that too, Spanish and English.”
According to The Sun, Everton, Liverpool, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain have all previously shown an interest in the player.
“Premier League clubs know him very well — they believe he can improve a lot in the next few years,” the representative continued, hinting at tangible interest from the EPL.
“They also know he’s not cheap though.”

The midfielder has impressed on occasion in Serie A so far this season, making 14 appearances—of which eight have been starts—and scoring two goals.
He’s shone as Inter, under the guidance of Roberto Mancini, have impressed in the Italian top flight this season. While their consistency has dipped a little in recent weeks—losing three of their last six league games—the Italian giants remain firmly in the title race, only two points behind leaders Napoli.
Brozovic is a midfield all-rounder who operates in the heart of the park, and who has proved efficient in both an offensive and a defensive capacity.
