Inter are planning to offer Ivan Perisic a new contract at the club, according to a report in the Italian media.
FcInterNews.it revealed the Nerazzurri had opened talks with the midfielder during the last few days and could accelerate negotiations in the coming weeks.
Perisic is under contract with Inter until 2022 (the end of next season) but the Croatian looks set to be handed a one-year extension until 2023.
The 32-year-old has become a precious player in Antonio Conte’s 3-5-2 system after reviving his Inter career during the second half of this season.
Perisic had the chance to re-join the Bundesliga in January when Hertha BSC made a bid, but he declined their offer because he was convinced he could regain a spot in Inter’s starting XI.
The former Bayern Munich winger wasn’t playing under Conte at the time and was viewed as a forward more than a wing-back, but time has proven Perisic right.
Perisic became a pivotal figure in Inter’s Serie A title run-in after the January transfer window shut, having scored four goals and provided five assists in all competitions this season.
