According to the Italian media outlets, Chelsea have reportedly joined the race to sign Inter Milan attacker and reported Manchester United target Ivan Perisic.

The Croatia international is believed to already be the subject of a £36m bid from Manchester United, however Inter Milan want closer to £50m for their star man.

As per the Premium Sport, an Italian publication, even claim that 28-year-old Perisic has been convinced of a move to Old Trafford following talks with Jose Mourinho.

Yet it seems Antonio Conte’s side have now joined those pursuing the Croatian winger, which could change the picture. Sky in Italy suggest the Premier League champions have registered their interest.

League 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain are also in the mix. The interest in the former Wolfsburg man comes amid an impressive season in which he has scored 10 goals and provided six assists.

When it comes to negotiations Inter Milan are in a strong position with his deal running until 2020. But with the club certain to finish no higher than seventh in Serie A this season they are unable to offer Champions League football.
