Arsenal join the race to sign Inter Milan attacker

Arsenal in for Perisic

Arsenal have reportedly joined the likes of Leicester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers in the race to sign Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan this summer.

The Croatian had handed in a transfer request in January after the interest expressed by the Gunners, but the deal failed to materialise with the north London side only interested in an initial loan move.

Despite this, there has remained regular speculation regarding his future and according to FC Inter News, he could head to the Premier League this summer with Arsenal, Leicester and Wolves keen on signing him.

Meanwhile, reports elsewhere suggest that the Nerazzurri are keen to offer Perisic as part of a deal to sign Romelu Lukaku from Manchester United but the Red Devils are likely to snub the approach.

Perisic has been with the Nerazzurri since the summer of 2015 and he has amassed 40 goals from 163 appearances in all competitions. His current deal with the club only expires in the summer of 2022.
