London rivals battle Arsenal for £30m-rated winger

West Ham United are the latest club in the frame to sign Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan.

Croatian winger came close to joining Manchester United last summer transfer window, only for Inter Milan to demand more money late in the window following his exciting performances at the World Cup.

The 30-year-old ace then emerged as a target for Arsenal, and their city rivals Tottenham Hotspur in January, though neither side could strike a deal with the Serie A giants.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Ivan Perisic looks increasingly likely to get his move later this year, though, as West Ham will offer him an alternative route to the top English football.

The three capital clubs are said to be vying for the services of Ivan Perisic, who recently left his representative to put several sides across Europe on red alert.

Inter Milan want somewhere between £25-30 million for the wideman, but they will not enter talks with any club until the season is over.

Serie A giants valued the attacker at £50 million several seasons ago, but now the club understand that the attacker is out of form and want to get rid of the player as soon as possible in order to get reasonable money for the winger.

Unai Emery wants to add an experienced attacker to his side to the Gunners, but the Spaniard had made a horrible mistake when he decided to withdraw contract offer from Aaron Ramsey and let him leave for free.
