Inter considered replacing Ivan Perisic with Chelsea’s Emerson Palmieri last summer, according to an Italian media report today.

The Croatian is earning rave reviews following his recent upturn in form, starring again for the Nerazzurri in Sunday’s derby win over AC Milan.

As reported by, though, Perisic could have left Inter after returning from his loan spell with Bayern Munich, where he won the UEFA Champions League last season.

Manchester United enquired about the availability of the 32-year-old upon his return to Inter, as did Tottenham Hotspur, but no official offers arrived.

Inter lined up Italy international Emerson as a replacement but in the end Perisic remained with Antonio Conte, who opted to turn him into a left wing-back for his 3-5-2 system.

After initially struggling to adapt, Perisic has been revitalised in the last month and appears to have really taken to the role, with consecutive impressive displays against Lazio and AC Milan.

Perisic, who is under contract with Inter until June 2022, has made 31 appearances across all competitions this season, in which he has scored three goals and provided a total of five assists.
