Di Marzio: Tottenham unlikely to move for experienced Inter Milan duo

Tottenham Hotspur stance on Inter Milan duo Marcelo Brozovic and Stefan De Vrij revealed

According to transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio speaking on Football Daily (h/t The Express), Tottenham Hotspur have decided not to pursue the Inter Milan duo Marcelo Brozovic and Stefan De Vrij in the coming transfer windows.

Having played under Antonio Conte previously, Brozovic and De Vrij got continuously linked with a move to Tottenham following the former’s appointment. The duo played a crucial part under Conte in their journey to winning the Seria A title last season as they ended Juventus’ dominance in Italy.

However, the Italian has agreed with Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici to only pursue youngsters as compared to veterans. Di Marzio revealed this when questioned about the possibility of Inter duo joining Spurs.

“I don’t think that these kind of players will leave Inter Milan in January because they want to win the title. Brozovic is talking to renew the contract, De Vrij is so important for Simone Inzaghi.”

“And then Tottenham and Antonio Conte, Fabio Paratici, Daniel Levy, they want young players. Top players but young players.”

Right decision?

While the stance would seem disappointing at first glance, it does make sense when you think about it. The 52-year-old manager had decent backing from the board at his previous clubs in the form of signings, and that could be the case when he took the mantle at the North London club.

The apparent stance of spending on younger players indicates that the trio wants to build a team that lasts the distance at N17. For Levy and Paratici, the process apparently started under Nuno Espirito Santo as well as we saw veterans Moussa Sissoko, Erik Lamela, and Toby Alderweireld in favour of players such as Cristian Romero and Bryan Gil.

Both de Vrij and Brozovic would be solid options, especially in the short run. The duo will turn 30 by the end of this season so it’s not audacious to suggest that spending the bucks on any possible transfer fee and wages would not be a smart investment for the long term.

A smart alternative to Brozovic would be AC Milan star Franck Kessie. However, a move for him in January has been ruled out by Di Marzio as well. He will, however, be available as a free agent next summer if there is no renewal on his current contract at San Siro.

It remains to be seen who will be the “young” options but hopefully, the next few signings would instantly uplift the squad in the short term as well.
