Croatian winger Ivan Perisic could depart from Inter on a free transfer as the Nerazzurri look to reduce their wage bill.

This according to Italian news outlet, who report that the €4.5 million owed to the 32-year-old on the final year of his contract is considered too high by the club.

As part of the plan to meet financial objectives in the summer, the Nerazzurri have set a goal of reducing the wage bill by 15%.

To this end, Joao Mario has already been allowed to depart for Benfica, while talks are ongoing with Cagliari for the release of Radja Nainggolan to the Sardinian club.

The likes of Matias Vecino and Andrea Pinamonti could also be let go, with the latter thought to be a player who the club would allow to leave on loan with a purchase option and the former admired by new coach Simone Inzaghi and likely to stay.

Perisic is another player who it is thought that the Nerazzurri would like to get off the books this summer, and with his contract expiring next summer and the club having no intention of renewing his deal it is hoped that he can be sold for a fee this summer.

However, should a suitable offer for the Croatian not come in, it is possible that he could be allowed to leave on a free transfer in order to shift his wages.
