Arsenal ready to pay over the odds for box-to-box star

The Metro claims that Arsenal are willing to pay more than the asking price for Marcelo Brozovic.

The midfielder is currently on loan with Inter Milan, but the Serie A leaders are claimed to be willing to pay the pre-agreed £8 Million before selling him on for the right price.

That price is said to be £11.9 Million, and the Gunners are keen on his signature.

Arsenal are said to be willing to spend up to £13.7 Million in order to push through a move, having attempted to land the player prior to his switch to Inter in January.

The 23 year-old is mainly selected to play in a box-to-box role, but is believed to be equally adept to playing anywhere across the midfield.

Brozovic has scored three goals in his 26 Serie A appearances since joining at the start of the year, but when playing in a more advanced position for the Croatia Under-21 side previously, he netted seven in seven in trying to help his side qualify for the U-21 European Championship.
