Arsenal have offered £36 million Perisic £250,000-a-week contract to sign up!
Reports have claimed Arsenal have offered Inter Milan star Ivan Perisic £250,000-a-week week to sign up.
Despite not doing much transfer business this window, reports emerged last week that Arsenal were on the verge of completing a deal for Perisic after the Croatian star asked for a transfer away from Milan.
The powerful winger has made no secret of his desire to test himself in different Leagues and Gunners boss Unai Emery was hoping to have a loan deal completed by now, but Arsenal cannot agree a deal with Inter as the Italians only want to sell.
However, the Sun has claimed Arsenal have offered Perisic £250,000 a week to join this month on an initial loan with a view to a permanent move in the summer.
And according to Milan-based newspaper Libero, Perisic has agreed personal terms with Arsenal despite the two clubs not agreeing on a loan or transfer deal.
Perisic told FourFourTwo: “From the beginning of my career, I’ve had the ambition to play in as many big leagues as possible, and I still have that desire to test myself in other leagues.
“And I mean in the Spanish or English leagues.
“I hope Inter fans understand my point of view. I’m an athlete and a professional, I like challenges and this is my driving force.
“What the future will bring, I don’t know. Now I’m focused on Inter, as we try to make a bigger step forward from last season.”
Do Arsenal need Perisic?
Perisic is a world class winger that would improve the attack of the Gunners squad, but with issues at the back and a few injuries, the Gunners would be working on deals for defenders and not ones for an attack that is one of the best in the Premier League.
So right now Arsenal do not need Perisic.
