If you thought the Premier League’s big six were going to call off the fight this summer, then you’d better think again.
Our traders have chalked up four of the leading six clubs in the running to sign Inter Milan ace Ivan Perisic.
The Croatian has enjoyed a sterling campaign in Serie A, netting nine goals in addition to supplying six assists.
But once again the Milan outfit have been left behind in the title race, and they currently sit sixth, a whopping 19 points behind rivals and league leaders Juventus.
And with the press claiming that Inter are willing to offer everything to lure Antonio Conte this summer, it’s clear that club are preparing for a summer overhaul.
That could provide Perisic to perfect chance to land a move elsewhere, and we make Chelsea 2/1 favourites to sign the forward.
The Stamford Bridge outfit are cantering towards the Premier League title, and are set to spend the summer recruiting players to boost the Blues in a Champions League tilt in the coming seasons.
Manchester United are next up at 3/1, and with the offensive shortcomings publicly displayed in recent games, it’s no surprise they’re being linked with a player of Perisic’s creative calibre.
Our traders then have Liverpool at 5/1, and the fact that Jurgen Klopp can already call upon Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino may go some way to explaining why Perisic may not be required at Anfield.
However, Klopp did sign the forward while at Borussia Dortmund, so don’t be surprised to see Liverpool’s price come in over the next few weeks.
Manchester City are the outsiders as far as Perisic’s Premier League odds are concerned, with a move to the Citizens priced up at 7/1.
Valued at £21m by transfermarkt.co.uk, the winger’s current Inter deal runs until 2020, and it’s believed only bids in excess of £50m will be sufficient to prize him to England.
