West Ham have enquired about Marcelo Brozovic ace, according to a report from Calcio Mercato.
Hammers boss David Moyes will be keen to bolster his ranks at the London Stadium.
Signings some new defenders and a centre-forward will be an absolute must. But it could be argued that we need to bolster our midfield ranks as well.
Carlos Sanchez has left whilst Mark Noble will turn 34 next year.
Josh Cullen has looked impressive in pre-season, but he is far from proven in the Premier League.
And then there are the constant rumours linking Declan Rice with an exit from West Ham.
So signing another midfielder would be a wise move from Moyes, albeit not an imperative one.
Calcio Mercato reckon that the Hammers have enquired about Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic.
The 27-year-old ace would be a great addition for West Ham.
The 53-capped Croatia international was in sensational form for Inter last season. He racked up three goals and nine assists in 43 games for the Serie A outfit (Who Scored).
Brozovic is enjoying one of the best spells of form of his career. And Inter boss Antonio Conte, who won the Premier League title with Chelsea, recently described him as ‘world-class’ (Goal).
Tutto Mercato Web recently claimed that Inter want around €28 million (£26 million) for the 27-year-old Croatian, however. And that will quite simply be too much for West Ham after the financial fallout from the global health crisis.
We need to sign some defenders first and foremost. Brozovic would be a superb signing but he is a player who we don’t necessarily need at the moment.
