Perisic remains firm: wants only Arsenal. Even loan exchange with Ozil will be difficult. Carassco-Candreva on stand by
Ivan Perisic is adamant: he wants only Arsenal. The Corriere dello Sport explains that the Gunners have not offered anything higher than loan with option to buy and have proposed Ozil also on loan. And even so, even if this is just an exchange of loans, this operation remains complicated due to the big difference in wages of the two players (Ozil makes significantly higher than Perisic).
If someone were going to pay Inter €35M-€40M for the Croatian, the Nerazzurri then could bring in De Paul immediately but Udinese now believe he is not for sale now and are only willing to make a deal for the summer. Ausilio met with De Paul’s agent yesterday but again, it is an uphill battle to acquire him now. In stand by is the Belgian forward Carrasco (who is also liked at Arsenal) and the exchange with Candreva.
