Chelsea have identified Ivan Perisic of Inter Milan as a potential target to buy in the summer transfer as new manager Antoine Conte is expected to bring more Serie A talents to the English Premier League. The former Borussia Dortmund midfielder revealed his desire to play in the Premier League and his agent is also open on a move to Chelsea.
Chelsea are planning a who;le squad revamp after a disastrous season. The Blues started the campaign as the defending English Premier League Champions who also had the Capital One Cup crown, but nothing went well for the Blues as they are now struggling in the mid-table. Even a top 6 finish this season is looking impossible for the Blues which made the season more horrible.
Chelsea were knocked out of all the other competitions as well which has affected the team’s important players’ morale. Eden Hazard, Oscar, Diego Costa, Thibaut Courtois and Nemanja Matic are all looking unsettled and most of them may even leave the club in the summer transfer window.
Ivan Perisic is one of the first players to be linked with a move to the Premier League side after Antoine Conte was officially confirmed as Chelsea’s new manager. The Croatian who had played for Bundesliga sides Borussia Dortmund and VFL Wolfsburg has just joined Inter Milan in the 2015 summer transfer where he has made 21 appearances this season scoring 6 goals and assisting in 4 occasions.
“To be linked to a club like Chelsea and a manager like Antonio Conte is very exciting for Perisic.”“The Premier League is the best league in the world and Chelsea is a massive club so we would happily talk about it but a deal is far at this moment,” Perisic’s agent, Tonci Martic, told Goal.
