Inter CEO Beppe Marotta feels confident that the club can agree a new contract with wingback Ivan Perisic.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia ahead of the Nerazzurri’s Coppa Italia final against Juventus tomorrow, the Nerazzurri executive updated on the 33-year-old’s situation as well as giving his thoughts on Paulo Dybala.

Perisic’s current deal runs out at the end of June, but given the Croat’s outstanding form this season the club have reportedly been aiming to extend him into at least next season.

No official agreement has arrived to confirm that Perisic will stay at Inter past the summer, though according to Marotta there are positive signs that he will sign.

“We’re not at match point, certainly,” he said. “If he has a  desire to stay with us, we’re happy to satisfy him. I’m very confident in that sense.”

The CEO also gave his thoughts on Dybala, who is set to leave Juventus on a free transfer at the end of his current deal and is reportedly a major target for the Nerazzurri.

“He’s an excellent player and is available on a free transfer,” Marotta said, “he’s attractive to big clubs.”

“We’re strong in attack and we’re the team who have scored the most goals, so from this point of view we have no problems, but I appreciate his qualities,” he added.

Regarding the summer transfer window, he said that “First of all we have a very talented young coach who’s accumulated even more experience, and we have a solid core, next we’ll have to shore up and seize opportunities.”

“In Italy we can’t imagine huge investments,” he added, “we must look for targeted reinforcements.”

Of the climax to the Nerazzurri’s season, Marotta pointed out that “The team  finds itself having to live with two contrasting pursuits, the league and the Coppa Italia, for the first time.”

“There’s tension,” he elaborated, “but the work of the club is showing good results. Everyone involved wants to give us something special.”

The CEO also had words for striker Edin Dzeko, calling him “A great professional, who was immediately good when he joined. He brings a lot of footballing wisdom to the position, especially for Correa and Lautaro.”
