Inter Milan have imposed a condition to Arsenal should they want to land Ivan Perisic.
Following the 21-game unbeaten run which was ended by Southampton at the St.Marys, Arsenal’s results have been inconsistent that is down to the calamities at the back. It is not for the goals they have struggled, but the number of goals they leak have come back to haunt them more often than not.
It has been a tough spell for Unai Emery who did not have Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Danny Welbeck, restricting the front line to Alex Iwobi, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette. With the Armenian back to full training this week, Unai Emery seeks another wide forward to play through the left wing.
Team news from Arsenal’s medical team:
Henrikh Mkhitaryan (right foot) is expected to return to full training this week.

It has been a tough start with the Gabon International playing through an unorthodox position through the wide. Despite playing through the left flank, there has been no shortage of end product from the forward who has scored 14 goals in the Premier League.
With the injuries taking a toil, the Spaniard is keen to reinforce their attack to strengthen their hand in the top four finish and land a silverware. Unai Emery is a specialist in the European competition as he has won it thrice during his time at Sevilla.
The Gunners have been linked with a move for Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic. There are various reports quoting that the Croatian has agreed on personal terms with the London outfit, but the transfer fees is yet to be negotiated as Arsenal are prepared to take him on loan for rest of the season with an option to buy until the end of the season.
However, it is understood that the Italian club are seeking a permanent transfer or a loan deal with an obligation to buy. Besides this criteria, the Nerazzurri are looking to sign Mesut Ozil on loan until the end of the season, but want the record FA Cup winners to pay his hefty wages which estimates up to 350,000 per week, according to the English publication Daily Star.

The Germans wage is one of the reasons for the Gunners to complete signing in this window. Additionally, Ozil has barely featured for Arsenal in the last couple of months which is forcing the Spaniard to sell him.
It is a bizarre situation for the Gunners who are looking for a wide attacker before the completion of this transfer window. There is no doubt that Arsenal must speed up negotiations to complete this transfer as the transfer window closes in three days.
