Arsène Wenger is expected to complete the signing of Croatian midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, becoming the club’s third signing this summer. Versatile winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is also expected to be shown the exit door at the Emirates this summer as Arsenal hope to regain their Champions League status next season.
Arsenal’s pursuit of Inter Milan’s 24-year-old midfielder will be seen as a long term replacement for Santi Cazorla in the heart of the Gunners midfield. Brozovic is now odds on to move to north London, according to BetStars (via the Daily Star).
“Arsenal have already bolstered their attacking options with the acquisition of Alexandre Lacazette,” said BetStars Director of Trading Ian Marmion. “And the odds suggest they could soon be adding another midfielder during this window.
“The Gunners are now odds-on at 7/10 to complete the signing of Croatian midfielder Marcelo Brozovic from Inter Milan.
“As Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain looks to be heading for the exit door Brozovic could represent a great replacement, if not an upgrade, given his ability to play multiple midfield positions.”
Marmion also added: “We’re calling it, expect to see Brozovic in an Arsenal shirt sooner rather than later.”
Arsenal fans will be eager for the club to add to the squad even further this summer, however, news that Oxlade-Chamberlain could leave the club will not be met well after the England international impressed as Arsenal’s right wing-back last season.
