Arsenal reportedly interested in 27-year-old international winger


Arsenal is reportedly interested in Croatian international and Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic, according to talkSport (via reports in Italy). It is unclear exactly how big of a transfer fee would be needed to acquire Perisic.

Perisic played 34 games in Serie A last season, scoring 7 goals and tallying 6 assists. He also had previous success in the Bundesliga, scoring 10 goals in 33 league games in the 2013/2014 season.

In addition to his club play, Perisic has been gaining some attention for his incredible performance in the European Championship so far.

Perisic scored 2 goals and had an assist in the group stage of the tournament for Croatia, leading the team to first place in their group over Spain, Turkey, and Czech Republic.

Perisic is a good player, and I believe he would be a quality signing for Arsenal. If the Gunners decide to part ways with Theo Walcott, then Perisic could fill in the role as winger.

As of now I do not think that a Perisic move to Arsenal is very realistic, but this could change depending on whether or not Walcott is sold this summer.
