IVAN PERISIC is to once again be on the radar of Premier League giants with the Croatian reportedly ready to complete a move to England for once and for all.
Many transfer windows in recent years have seen the Inter Milan winger linked with the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal.

And it’s the Gunners, along with Tottenham Hotspur, who are currently keeping tabs on him for a summer switch.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Spurs have piqued their interest in Perisic as they look to finally splash some cash after a dry year in the transfer market.
The Italian report also names Unai Emery’s Arsenal as the other team monitoring the situation, which is linked to Inter’s pursuit of a new winger to freshen up their attack.
If the Milan club can seal the signature of PSV Eindhoven talent Steven Bergwijn, it is thought Perisic may need to be sold to stabilise their finances.
Bergwijn, 21, would cost upwards of £30 million following another impressive campaign in the Netherlands, netting 12 goals and becoming a key part of the national team setup.
Such a talent would potentially edge Perisic out of the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, and the 30-year-old is reported to be keen on finally trying his luck in the Premier League.
Jose Mourinho was a big fan of the World Cup finalist but couldn’t bring him to United.
While Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may have a different opinion, Perisic is keen to keep his options open and has hired Doyen Sports to represent him in the market.
Famous names linked to the agency in the past include David Beckham, Neymar and Usain Bolt.
Chelsea, currently banned from registering new signings by FIFA, agreed a player endorsement deal with Doyen in January 2018.
Another player involved in this transfer puzzle is Keita Balde, the winger on loan at Inter from Monaco with the Serie A team pondering whether to make his move permanent.
