Arsenal target, Perisic submits transfer request at Inter Milan

Inter Milan winger, Ivan Perisic, has submitted a transfer request to the club, general manager Beppe Marotta confirmed on Sunday.

Perisic has asked to leave the club this month, but Marotta insists that a suitable offer for the Arsenal target has not been received.

The Gunners, who can only sign players on loan due to their financial situation, are reported to want the Croatian on a temporary deal with an option to buy for £35m in the summer.

But Marotta says a transfer would only happen if Inter’s demands are met.

“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.

“But there are a few days left.

“When a player expresses the way he feels, in a correct manner, you’ve got to show understanding and accommodate him, but there are financial aspects that need to be respected.

“If he stays, it will be the job of the club — first and foremost the coach — to ensure the player delivers for the rest of the season,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
