Arsenal leading goalscorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has boosted hopes that a deal for Inter winger Ivan Perisic may finally be close by posting on social media.
Arsenal were bidding Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez but negotiations were collapsed because of the demands of the Catalan club.
And now Unai Emery is full of hope to bring in Inter winger Ivan Perisic to reinforce his options in attack.
Aubameyang was caught out liking a post from an Arsenal fan account that showed a picture of Perisic.
The caption read: “Ivan Perisic has asked to leave Inter Milan.”
Arsenal are restricted to loan signings this month with Inter wanting to sell their player to a club willing to make a cash offer up front.
