Arsenal have agreed personal terms with Inter Milan to secure a loan move for forward Ivan Perisic, according to Football Italia.
Gunners boss Unai Emery is looking to strengthen his squad during the January transfer window and has admitted that a winger is top of his agenda.
The Croation has emerged as the Gunner’s top target as they look to secure a loan move for the rest of the season, with a view to making the transfer permanent in the summer for a reported £35million fee.
Perisic has scored just three goals in 16 appearances for the Italian side this season, but has a good goal scoring record for both club and country in previous seasons.
Inter boss Luciano Spalletti left Perisic on the bench for the side’s 1-0 at Torino last weekend, with the 29 year-old’s desire to leave said to be the reason for his absence.
Whilst Inter Director Guiseppe Morotta also confirmed that the former Wolfsburg man had handed in a transfer request and the club are ready to listen to offers.
According to reports from Football Italia Perisic has agreed a contract worth £2.6million until June and then will sign a three-year deal worth £5.6million if the transfer is made permanent in the summer.
