Arsenal make contact with Inter Milan for forward´s signature

Arsenal have claimed to have made contact over a move to sign Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan.

The 32 year-old played a key role in helping the Nerazzurri to secure the Scudetto last season, with four goals and five assists in his 32 league outings.

Fussball Transfers states that he is open to leaving however, with interest from Premier League sides Man United, Tottenham and now Arsenal.

The report claims that the Croatian is leaning towards Spain or England as his next home, with former club Bayern Munich the only club in Germany he would consider.

TribalFootball adds that Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has already shown a willingness to bring experience into the playing squad, highlighted by the arrival of Willian 12 months ago, although that signing hardly worked out for the better.

The Brazilian has been linked with an exit only 12 months after joining from Chelsea on a free transfer, despite having two years remaining on his playing contract, and with David Luiz already confirmed as leaving also, you would imagine that the squad would be losing some essential experience.

While I´m all for adding a little experience and leadership, I personally believe Perisic would be a sideways move from Willian, and he is certainly not going to be a long-term signing.

Does anyone believe Ivan would be a positive signature for Arsenal?

    Every season arsenal will be link to all sorts of players and by the end of the window ends up buying the very least of the players

      In a word, no.

    Age 32. Another Willian. Seems we are a care home now.

    Patrick, Surely a more pertinent question with which, as usual, to end your article, would be “does anyone think there is even a scintilla of likelihood that this contains even a grain of truth?”. My vote is NO, it does not!

    The writer of this article says ‘ Arsenal have claimed to have made contact over a move to sign Ivan Perisic ‘…how does the writer know this, has someone from the club personally contacted him and told him this because I am pretty sure that Arsenal don’t do their transfer dealings this way.

      I am a true fan of arsenal but I believe the club is been gambled on just to loose every title. Why would a team like ARSENAL scout for players who are supposed to retire. Its a team to watch not a team for Jest. If any player feels he’s done with football should retire and not looking for a deal in Arsenal

    this would somehow be even dumber than the Willian signing, so I simply refuse to believe we’re that stupid

    I don’t think so,the club have already learned, I don’t think if they can bring another player at that age again,age of 32 again surely,this club want to kill me at this time, next season first 11 must be strong,and don’t wait until dateline, bring five strong players

    No god no please no!

    Goodness guys. Another cheap and cheerful over-the-hill special. What more could we want.

    We need experience in the back-room much more than we do on the pitch. I am afraid it is going to be another scatter gun transfer window. We will bring three or four ordinary players and miss out on Europe again, or worse get in the Europa Championship.

    I cannot stress enough that we should buy TWO new players. A top class goal scorer and another defensive midfielder.
    Bissouma from Brighton and Insigne (He is 30 and the captain of Napoli) or Icardi from PSG would do for me.

    I feel, in our current situation, that Ben White would be a luxury buy. I would like to see him on the team, but we are porous thru midfield and we struggle to score goals. Ben White played well for Brighton, but look where they finished.
