However, his prospective switch to the Emirates Stadium has been dealt a blow after Inter stepped up their interest, with Walter Mazzarri keen to recruit the 21-year-old when the transfer window reopens in January.

The Serie 'A' giants are willing to offer €6 million for Brozovic but Zagreb are likely to demand more money, which could play into the hands of Arsenal, after identifying him as a possible back-up for £42.4 million club-record signing Mesut Ozil.
