Chelsea have been offered major encouragement in their pursuit of Inter Milan star Ivan Perisic.
talkSPORT cite Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport in reporting that Perisic prefers a move to the Premier League if he is to leave the San Siro this summer.
Gazzetta dello Sport believe that Premier League champions Chelsea are interested in signing the Croatia international, as Antonio Conte looks to ready his squad for life in the Champions League.
Gazzetta dello Sport report that Chelsea will face competition from both Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain, with the latter thought to be willing to part with as much as £48million to secure his signature.
However, if Gazzetta dello Sport are correct in reporting that Perisic has one eye on a move to the Premier League, Chelsea would likely be a more attractive destination than the Parc des Princes.
Only time will tell if Perisic will be pulling on a Chelsea shirt next campaign.
