Inter Milan director Guiseppe Marotta reveals that Ivan Perisic has handed in a transfer request amid reports of interest from Arsenal.

Inter Milan director Guiseppe Marotta has revealed that Ivan Perisic has handed in a transfer request.

Perisic, 29, signed a new five-year contract with Inter in 2017, following months of speculation linking the attacker with a move to Manchester United.

The 2018 World Cup finalist has made over 140 appearances for Inter in all competitions, but Marotta has confirmed that the attacker "has asked to leave" amid reports of interest from Arsenal.

"Perisic has asked to leave but there is no offer for him. We will see in the coming days," Marotta told Sky in Italy. "We will listen to the request of Perisic, he has put in a transfer request; we must try to satisfy him but also respect the value of him."

Perisic, who has scored three times and registered five assists in 25 appearances for Inter this season, is believed to be a loan target for Arsenal.

The attacker was an unused substitute in Inter's 1-0 defeat to Torino in Serie A on Sunday.
