Arsenal could miss out on the signing of Ivan Perisic as the Inter Milan star is said to prefer a move to arch rivals Tottenham.
The Gunners were heavily linked with a swoop for the Croatian international during the January transfer window and the player handed in a transfer request in the hope of forcing a move away from the San Siro.

A deal failed to materialise and Perisic ended up staying where he is, but reports are rife suggesting Arsenal will make a fresh attempt to strike a deal at the end of the season, when they will hope for more luck.
Arsenal will have more cash to fund a deal in the summer, but it has been suggested Perisic will reject a move to the Emirates Stadium as he holds out for a move to Spurs instead.
Whether Mauricio Pochettino is keen on the 30-year-old remains to be seen, but the report claims Perisic would prefer to link up with the Argentina boss and play Champions League football in the new stadium next season.
Manchester United have also been interested in striking a deal in the past, but look to have pulled out of the running following the departure of Jose Mourinho.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
