Inter Milan are prepared to offload midfielder Marcelo Brozovic before the end of the transfer window, according to SportItalia (via the Sun).

The Italian TV station is reporting the 24 year old is deemed surplus to requirements at the Serie A club despite the fact the midfielder started Inter’s 3-0 opening day win against Fiorentina on Sunday. The attacking midfielder was picked to start by new coach Luciano Spalletti before being substituted on the 71st minute.

Arsenal are believed to be front runners for the Croatian international mainly because they have been linked heavily with the player over the past year, and also due to the fact they have very few offensive central midfield players in the squad.

One of the possible reasons for Inter deciding to sell could be the club’s owner, the Suning Group, looking to balance the books in order to keep within UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules. La Gazzetta Dello Sport is reporting that the Brozovic money could be used to finance a move for AC Milan midfielder Suso.
