The Magpies are showing strong interest in Marcelo Brozovic.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Newcastle United are poised to land Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic.
The 28-year-old has been with Inter since 2016, having signed for the club from Dinamo Zagreb for 5 million euros. The Croatia international’s current deal expires in 2022.
This season, Brozovic has provided one assist in 14 appearances for Inter Milan.
The 28-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Croatia. His record for Croatia is impressive. Brozovic has scored 7 goals in 68 matches for Croatia at senior level.
There has been no movement on Brozovic agreeing a contract extension at Inter, and he will be on the radar of many English clubs during the winter.
Newcastle are looking to sign a midfielder and have identified the 28-year-old as potential transfer target. They will have funds to spend in the market and it will be interesting to see how they approach the winter transfer window.
The Magpies are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
There is no doubt that Marcelo Brozovic will take Newcastle’s midfield to a different level. He has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.
According to the report, “Newcastle United are preparing to make Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic their first big signing of their new era. Brozovic is out of contract at the San Siro in the summer and the Magpies could make an approach as soon as January. The 2018 World Cup semi-finalist would prefer to stay in Milan, where his family are settled, but could be tempted by a lucrative move to St. James’ Park. He has been with the Nerrazzuri for almost seven years and played a vital part in helping them win the Scudetto last season for the first time in eleven years. Brozovic wants a new deal worth around £5m-a-year, but Inter are reluctant to go beyond £4.2m at present, opening the door for Newcastle to swoop in, says The Sun.”
