I wrote this article exactly two years ago. At the time it seemed like a good question as both players were on the same trajectory. Fast forward two years and nobody would make this deal today as Brozovic has failed to develop and hold down a regular spot in the Inter first team.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Inter want Tottenham player Erik Lamela and are offering Marcelo Brozovic or Jeison Murillo in exchange for the midfielder.
Lamela knows all about Serie A after his time with Roma and now the Argentine international is being linked with a move back to Italy to join Roberto Mancini’s side.
The Corriere dello Sport insists Inter are ready to offer Colombian defender Murillo or Croatian midfielder Brozovic, most likely the latter, in an exchange deal for Lamela.
As of now, Brozovic appears to be the favourite, as his agent has been pushing for a wage increase or transfer over the last few weeks.
Spurs want €25m to part with Lamela, who is under contract until June 2018.
