REVEALED: Why Ivan Perisic wants to join Arsenal

Inter Milan star Ivan Perisic has emerged as the new transfer target for Premier League side Arsenal.

The Gunners want Perisic on loan with an option to buy him for £35million, according to BBC.

According to Wanda Nara (via DailyStar), Ivan Perisic wants to leave Inter Milan due to personal reasons.

Perisic submitted a transfer request before Sunday’s 1-0 defeat at Torino, a game, during which he was left on the bench for.

But Nara, the agent and wife of Inter Milan skipper Mauro Icardi, believes Perisic’s professionalism should not be called into question.

“I don’t think any player should be too focused on the work of his agent, as he has to remain concentrated on the game anyway,” Nara told Mediaset programme Tiki Taka.

“No player wants to lose, even if he is eager to leave. Perhaps he wants to go elsewhere because of personal issues.”
