Arsenal handed Perisic transfer boost

29th January 2019, 12:04 by Chris Rivers

Arsenal's hopes of landing Ivan Perisic this month have been boosted after Inter Milan said they would be willing to discuss a deal.

The Croatia international is being heavily linked with a loan switch to the Emirates Stadium before the January transfer window shuts and is understood to have handed in a transfer request in the hope of getting his way.

The Gunners are keen to sign the 29-year-old on loan with a view to a permanent switch come the summer but it is understood the Londoners have yet to discuss terms with Inter.

Having previously said they wanted to keep Perisic, Nerazzurri general manager Beppe Marotta has now admitted they could be willing to head to the negotiating table with the winger having made it clear he wants to move on.

"It is hard to keep hold of players if they don't want to stay," he told Sky Sport Italia on Monday evening. "There have been very few moves [this winter] and a lot of unsatisfied players, so it's up to us to deal with this situation.

"As things stand, no concrete offer has arrived so there are no conditions [to sell Perisic]."

Any move for Perisic could be dependent in Inter getting a replacement through the door first and it is understood the Serie A side are working on a deal for Yannick Carrasco, who plays for Dalian Yifang in China.
