On Wednesday, Italian daily Corriere della Sera revealed Atlético Madrid's interest in Inter Milan mildfielder Ivan Perisic, claiming the 29-year-old Croatian is not happy at the San Siro and is looking for a way out.
"Many players ask for a transfer". In around four years or so, the player's stock has only risen, before he reached the heady heights of superstardom in the aftermath of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, wherein he played a key role in Croatia's run to the final.
However, Tuttomercato is reporting that Perisic has already personal agreed terms with English giants Arsenal that will see him net £49,954 p/w until the end of the season, on loan, and then £108,236 p/w should he join permanently after that.
The Frenchman could be back for Sunday's trip to holders Manchester City.
Inter know that Perisic is interested in leaving but they insisted that he can go only if it is a permanent switch and a club meets their price of £35m, while they want the cash up front.

But that wasn't all, as a sneak peek teaser video has also been released, which gives a first look at a number of characters. As you can see, the footage is labeled "See You Soon", and is the only video upload from YouTube user CheekySneakyPeeky .
Arsenal are in the hunt for a loan deal to sign Barcelona outcast Malcom before the transfer window closes on Thursday night, according to the Sun. Perisic is thus, a viable target for Emery to revert to his original formation. Again, the club want an initial loan deal with an option to buy in the summer.
And now, club director Giuseppe Marotta has confirmed Perisic has handed in a trasnfer request to push a move through.
But, convincing Inter to agree to a deal is now proving to be the only obstacle for Arsenal.
"When a player is fair and tells us his mental state and what he wants, we will always listen".
