Inter Milan coy over Mesut Ozil interest

Inter Milan sporting director Piero Ausilio has refused to rule out a move for Arsenal midfielder, although he is pessimistic a deal could be finalised in the January transfer window.


The German international has been reluctant to extend his contractual terms at the Emirates despite entering the final year of his Gunners deal.

Nerazzurri president Erick Thohir recently admitted that Ozil is one of the prime targets for the club for the New Year, but Ausilio appears doubtful whether a deal could be agreed midway through the season, he told Premium Sport: "We are studying our squad, we have scouts everywhere and they look at every kind of player. I don't think players like him [Ozil] will be leaving in January. Luciano Spalletti knows this team has room for improvement, which is what we are working on."

Inter Milan boss praises leader Ivan Perisic

Inter Milan manager Luciano Spalletti has heaped praise on Ivan Perisic following his performance in the 2-0 victory over Crotone.


The Nerazzurri preserved their 100 percent start to the Serie A season after goals from Milan Skriniar and Perisic sealed the points.

Speaking after the game, Spalletti insisted that Perisic's influence is beyond the playing field as he has sacrificed himself a lot, he said: "Perisic sacrificed himself a lot. Leaders show themselves when the team needs them and Ivan has shown that he is important in these opening matches. Teams that want to get results think this way, by dividing up strengths and weaknesses and by taking on responsibility when their teammates are in difficulty."

Mourinho losing hope of signing Ivan Perisic

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has admitted that Inter Milan put up a good defence in their decision to keep hold of Ivan Perisic for the summer. The Croatia international has been on United's radar since the start of last season, but unfortunately, the club have failed to strike a deal with their Serie A counterparts.

Mourinho's side have failed with two bids for the 28-year-old attacker, but neither come close to the Nerazzurri's valuation which currently stands at around £48.5m. The Red Devils have already pursued three signings in the form of Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic, and Mourinho would like at least one more addition to his squad before the transfer window closes this month.

Spalletti wants to push Inter Milan to the Champions League

The last time that Inter Milan won the Serie A title was back during the season of 2009-10 and this season was also their last time that they lifted the UEFA Champions League silverware.
For the past few years, Inter Milan has suffered from changes in various aspects. In 2016, the Chinese holding company Suning Holdings acquired the majority stake of the Italian club for around €270 million.
