Inter Milan ‘make dramatic U-turn on Arsenal target Perisic and will keep him’


INTER MILAN are set to hold on to Ivan Perisic long-term, according to reports.

The Croatian winger slapped in a transfer request last month amid reported interest from Arsenal.

But Inter boss Luciano Spalletti claimed the Gunners were never in a position to do business to bag the 30-year-old winger.

Spalletti revealed this month Perisic needed to be reintegrated back into his squad after his player’s head was turned during the window.

Perisic has started the last five games with Inter winning four and losing to Bologna.

He scored in Thursday’s 4-0 Europa League win over Rapid Vienna scoring his fifth goal of the season for club and country.

And Gazzetta dello Sport reckon Perisic has done enough to convince the club’s top brass his head is back at the San Siro and will be part of their plans next season.

Another player set to be handed a reprieve is Radja Nainggolan.

The Belgian midfielder has struggled with injuries since his move from Roma last summer.

And there has been talk of Inter cutting their losses and move the 30-year-old on at the end of the campaign.

But Nainggolan looks to be over his injury nightmare after starting the last five games.
