Ivan Perisic ‘agrees’ his Arsenal deal
According to Italian daily Libero, Ivan Perisic has an agreement in place to join Arsenal.
Libero have revealed on Monday that Perisic has a Deal in place to move to the Gunners this January.
Under the terms, Arsenal will pay the 29-year-old Croatian winger 3 million euros net until the end of the season.
Perisic will then complete a permanent move to Arsenal in the summer, when he’ll sign a deal until 2022.
Under that deal, Arsenal will pay Perisic 6.5 million euros per year.
In 18 Serie A matches this term, Perisic has three goals and two assists.
Inter Milan & Arsenal
Yet, just because Perisic has a deal in place, that doesn’t mean Arsenal will land the player before February 1.
Libero report that Inter Milan haven’t agreed terms with Arsenal.
Inter continue to baulk at suggestions that Perisic can leave on loan this month.
Instead, Inter seem to be steadfast that Perisic can only leave the San Siro this week on a permanent deal.
