Ivan Perisic joined Inter Milan from Wolfsburg in 2015


The Gunners want to seal a loan move for the 29-year-old for the rest of the season, with an option to purchase him in the summer for £35m.

Croatia international Perisic signed a new five-year contract in Sep 2017 to extend his stay with the Italian club until 2022.

However  it's understood he's open to leaving the San Siro after joining from Wolfsburg in 2015.

Perisic has scored 34 goals in 142 appearances for inter, finding the net 3 times in 25 games this term. He previously played for Borussia Dortmund and Club Brugge.

Arsenal s original set up for the January transfer window was to secure loan deals for a flexible midfielder and a winger.

For the midfield role, they remain keen on Barcelona's Denis Suarez and Christopher Nkunku of Paris St-German.

They see Perisic as a leading choice to add width to Unai Emery's squad.

It is understood inter would be ready to do business for between £35m-£40m.

The club rejected a similar-sized offer from Manchester United in 2017 and demanded £50m.

United refused and Perisic subsequently signed a new contract with the Italian club.

However  the player's performances have dipped since starring in Croatia's run to the globe final, leaving inter to conclude they may be better cashing in.

It is unclear whether injuries to Rob Holding, Hector Bellerin, Laurent Koscielny and Sokratis Papadopoulos will see them attempt to usher in defensive reinforcements.

However  the matter that forced Sokratis off the field in Friday's fa Cup defeat by Manchester United in not thought to be serious.
