Arsenal Joins Manchester United To Sign This Serie A Winger: The Right Fit For The Gunners?

According to a recent report by the Daily Mirror, Arsenal have joined Manchester United and Atletico Madrid in the race to secure the services of Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan. The same source has also claimed that the Milan outfit are looking to recoup a fee between £30m and £35m for their prized asset. The Gunners tried to sign the Croatia international during the January transfer window, but a move failed to materialise back then (via the Mirror). 

The 30-year-old forward has been a brilliant asset for Inter since he arrived at the San Siro in the summer of 2015. The Croat has already put in a series of majestic displays for Luciano Spaletti’s side during this campaign.

Perisic has managed to register five goals while providing seven assists in 35 matches for the Italian giants this term across multiple competitions. He has also made 78 international appearances for his country and has 22 goals to his name thus far.

The Split born talent had a terrific 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign with Croatia last summer when he helped the European nation secure a second-place finish in that tournament. At 30, Perisic still has a few good years left in his locker so his vast experience could help the Gunners win some silverware in the coming years.

The former Borussia Dortmund sensation primarily operates as a left-winger but is capable of playing on the right flank or in the number 10 position. Furthermore, Perisic knows how to score or create goals when his team needs him to step up to the plate.

The Croatia international will be an excellent fit for Unai Emery’s side as he would undoubtedly bolster the club’s attacking options ahead of the new campaign. The North London outfit does not have too many natural wingers (exception is Iwobi) in their squad so Perisic’s acquisition will definitely help them stretch the pitch better in the opposition half.

Hence, it makes a lot of sense for the Gunners to move in for the Serie A wing wizard during the summer transfer period, but it won’t be easy for Emery to fend off competition as Man United and Atletico Madrid will also fancy their chances of landing the Croat star.
