North London outfit Arsenal have been reported to be closing in on a deal for Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic and are preparing to table an offer as soon as the summer transfer window opens up.
The Gunners are in desperate need of a winger to strengthen up their attack and the Milan winger has emerged as their best option due to his impressive performance in the Serie A this season.
Manager Unai Emery is said to be ready to spend a huge amount of money in the summer transfer window. Reports claims that Premier League rivals like Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham all reported to be keen on signing him this summer.
The Croatian winger, who joined the Serie A side from Wolfsburg back in 2015 for a reported fee of €20m, quickly rose to be a key figure for the Nerazzurri since his arrival having scored eight goals and creating eight assists in 41 appearances in all competitions for the club this season.
His contract with the Italian club is set to expire in the summer of 2022, with his release clause reported to be €35 million. With that clause, Arsenal should be able to afford to pay for his transfer fee as they are willing to strengthen up the attack ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.
The Gunners will be willing to do what it takes to bring in the winger this coming summer, but should be ready to see off competitions from their Premier League rivals.
