Inter Director Confirms Ivan Perisic Transfer Request as Arsenal Consider Approach

Ivan Perisic

Ivan Perisic Arsenal and Manchester United are potential destinations for the Inter Milan star

Inter Milan manager Luciano Spalletti has warned Ivan Perisic he must find a club willing to foot his wages after the winger handed in a transfer request in a bid to join Arsenal.

Barcelona winger Denis Suarez is the other player linked with the Emirates Stadium.

"It's a player that has been talked about because everyone values him as much as we do, and if anyone wants to buy him they will need to pay him good money because we rate him a lot", he said.

"We've listened to the player, who has expressed his desire to leave, but we need to make sure it makes sense from an economic point of view and no such offer has yet arrived", he told Sky Sport Italia.

However, Emery played down suggestions that the Gunners will be forced sign a centre-back in January, with Laurent Koscielny, Sokratis and Rob Holding all now out injured.

But, Hector Bellerin's season-ending injury means those plans are in jeopardy as well now.

Emery said he did not want to sign defensive cover because it would lead to problems when his injured players returned to fitness.

'I'm happy with the players, we have enough to achieve big performances in the Premier League and Europa League.

Cagliari have already slapped a £43m asking price on the young midfielder amidst interest from both the Premier League and the Italian Serie A. "We're also going to play the Europa League with big motivation". The London-based club is now fifth on the league table and will be aiming for finishing in the Champions League qualification places.
