Tottenham are set to sign Marcelo Brozovic from Inter Milan in a £44m deal as Mauricio Pochettino closes-in on his first summer signing, according to reports in Italy.

No comments?! Has everyone given up? :wtf:
It's not that mate. We've waited all window for a signing, and then this. I saw him for Croatia, looked alright, but I know nothing else about him. Hopefully we sign him and he's amazing. Just a little undewhelmed

We need homegrown players, though. So can't see it happening unless we first ship out at least two of Llorente, Nkoudo, Dembele or Sissoko.

Just watched a 10 minute highlight vid. Looks very decent actually; comfortable on the ball, a decent range of passing, and good desicion making. A lot of the inter fans commenting said he's been 'epic' ( fucking kids😁), since playing as a deep lying pm. The new Pirlo, or so the brats say.

To be fair though, 10min clips of any player could be made for any player and make them look good. Well if it's true, hopefully we'll get to see it on a consistent basis!

True that mate. I was more encouraged by the fans who commented on the video. One even said without him Inter would have been in the EL.
FYI Inter are abysmal at finishing.

He was very good for Croatia. Don't forget the midfield dominated everyone they played and he was part of it but he did the role we need, stuck in and move the ball around. That's what Poch formation is craving.

Stick him in the base of a 4-3-3 with Eriksen and A.N. Other and there's a good midfield there.

We're down to the bone in CM and no certainty that we won't have continuing injury issues with Vic and Winks. Brozovic is very adaptable so as things stand I'd welcome him.

I saw a rumour about Kondogbia. That would be a much better signing, he really could replace Dembele. Suppose he'd cost a fortune though.
