Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has thrown his weight behind the bid to sign Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic before the end of this transfer window.

Gabonese international star Aubameyang is the Gunners’ top scorer in all competitions with 17 goals and he gave his approval after liking an Instagram post (via Metro) about Ivan Perisic handing in a transfer request at Inter Milan amidst Arsenal transfer links.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has had to fill in at left wing for the majority of the season but a successful Arsenal bid for a specialist left winger like Ivan Perisic would ensure that the African player returns to his central striker role in the Arsenal team.

Ivan Perisic has already told Inter Milan officials that he wants to leave the club in this transfer window after submitting a transfer request to that effect.

The Croatian international player has already agreed to terms with Arsenal according to various media reports in Italy.

Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan have already turned down the Arsenal loan offer of £5m for the rest of this season with an option to buy at the end of the season.

Perisic has not enjoyed this season in the colours of Inter Milan after netting three goals only.
