Perišić asks to leave Inter amid Arsenal interest. - Omitted from tonight's squad.
Arsenal have been showing interest in the last couple of days in Inter Milan Winger, Ivan Perišić and it seems as if the Italian side would be happy to let him go. However reports from Italy state that Inter would only be willing to sanction a permanent move of €40m (£35m). It's been said that Arsenal have offered both a loan with a £35m option to purchase and some reports even state they've pushed Mesut Özil's name into the mix, both suggestions falling on deaf ears in Milan.
However the most recent delineation out of Italy is that Ivan Perišić has approached Inter Coach, Luciano Spalletti and told him that he would like to leave and requested they entertain the London sides proposal. In the last few hours it's been reported that Perišić has been omitted from the Inter squad to face Torino this evening, of which he was initially a part.
