Perisic has been at Inter since 2015 and was previously linked with a switch to Manchester United.
Arsenal's hopes of signing Perisic this month will undoubtedly be boosted by the winger's previous comments about a move to England.More news: Redmi Note 7 Pro to come with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage
However, the Croatian has submitted a transfer request and wants to leave Inter amid interest from Arsenal.
Speaking about the star last night, Unai Emery said: "We need wingers".
"Perisic wants to go overseas, but there are no suitable offers", Inter's technical director Piero Ausilio said. The Italian denied that a bid had been received. "But the club say to me in the summer it is going to be different and we are going to have chances to spend money".
"The player has expressed this desire, we want to satisfy him but also by respecting the asset value and for now nothing concrete has arrived".More news: Ariana Grande Tries And Fails To Fix Botched Japanese Tattoo
And Emery, despite the loss of Bellerin, has admitted he has been told he is not in a position to buy players this window, but has been assured the situation will be different in the summer.
Inter head coach Luciano Spalletti made the decision to drop Perisic for his side's 1-0 defeat to Torino on Sunday, with the wide-man an unused substitute over the 90 minutes.More news: Musk not anxious about Tesla Model 3 demand, but Wall Street is
