Inter will still make an effort to sign Ivan Perisic’s contract past the end of June even though there is significant interest in the 32-year-old from other clubs.
This according to Italian broadcaster SportMediaset, who report that the Nerazzurri are aiming to keep the Croat on past the end of the season even with Robin Gosens now set to sign from Atalanta.
Gosens will arrive as the Nerazzurri’s designated long-term successor to Perisic, whose current deal is set to expire at the end of June, and the club will not feel too much pressure to agree a renewal.
However, they are still planning to hold talks and will keep the Croat on should they be able to find an agreement.
Inter are offering a two-year deal worth €4 million net per season, while the player is hoping for a three-year deal worth a net of €6 million per season.
Perisic could be hoping to get a significant fee for what’s likely to be the last major contract of his career, and a number of clubs are interested in him.
However, this does not mean that the Nerazzurri have given up on a renewal.
