The Gunners want to sign Perisic and the player is ready to make the move to the Emirates Stadium, however no agreement has been reached between the two clubs yet.

Reports in Italy have suggested Inter Milan are willing to sell Perisic this month following a poor start to the season, with the club putting a £35m price tag on his head.

Arsenal, fifth in the league and three points behind Chelsea in fourth, were knocked out of the FA Cup by Manchester United on Friday.

There are growing reports Inter could drop Ivan Perisic for today's trip to Torino, as they are inviting Arsenal to match his €40m price-tag.

Arsenal are already in talks with Croat Perisic over a loan move with an option to buy in the summer. The Gunners have been searching for a winger to add another dimension to Unai Emery's options in attack and the Croatian could fit the bill.

He said, "Perisic? I repeat, it's hard to keep players who don't want to stay, but no real offer has come in yet so there are no grounds [for him to leave right now]".

"The idea is firstly to find the quality. I am a supporter of a restrictive transfer window, but with the fact that it closes on the 31st [January], a lot of players wish to leave their clubs".

"If he does remain, I expect the same professionalism from him as always".

However, Arsenal can only make loan signings in January and Inter have made it clear that they will only let Perisic leave if they receive a transfer fee.

Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, has the club is working on two deals ahead of transfer deadline day.

Furthermore, he emphasised that it is his job to improve his squad as they challenge for honours in the Premier League and in Europe. "Now, I'm focusing on Inter".
