Arsenal could use Inter’s Xhaka interest to help win race for sought-after Perisic

Inter Milan are reportedly interested in Granit Xhaka and perhaps a deal including Ivan Perisic can be hatched that suits all parties.

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka is the subject of transfer interest from Inter Milan this summer, according to the Sunday People, page 55, 14/04.

They report that the Gunners could be tempted by a £30m offer for the Swiss international in the forthcoming transfer window.

And Arsenal were linked with a swoop for Inter midfielder Ivan Perisic by the BBC back in the January window and Sport Witness relayed last week that they remain keen on the 75-cap Croatia international this summer too.


So perhaps a deal can be done between the two clubs – a part swap or just a mutually beneficial negotiation stance – to help them both get their man?

Xhaka has improved under Unai Emery but there is always a feeling that Arsenal could do with a holding midfielder who is a level above what he can offer.

And if Emery wants Perisic to boost his wide options in a squad which is a bit short on quality and pace out wide, then the prospect of a double deal may appeal to him.

Because even if they got the reported £30m, Perisic would likely cost something in that region anyway, and with Spurs reportedly sniffing around the Croatian powerhouse as well, it may pay to keep Inter onside.
