According to Gazzetta dello Sport, West Ham United are considering a summer move for Inter Milan attacker Ivan Perisic.
Perisic has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, but West Ham are now being touted as surprise summer suitors.
Perisic, who starred for Croatia en route to the final of the 2018 World Cup, has scored seven times and contributed eight assists in 39 appearances in all competitions for Inter this term.
The West Ham fans have been on social media commenting on the speculation, which has come as a bit of a surprise.
Former Wigan & Fulham man, Jimmy Bullard recently showed that he’s still got it! Check out the video below…
And it would be fair to say that the majority do not believe that their club stand a single chance of signing Perisic from Inter in this summer’s transfer window – with some speculating that news of the Irons targeting such a big name is linked to the club pushing for season ticket renewals.
