    I'd rather have him than Mata tbh. Problem is Inter are asking for way too much money for a player who can probably go two more years at this level and he'd be a squad player for us.

    Isnt perisic primarily a left sided player? Thats the last thing we need right now imo, what we need is a proper RW.
    When Mata is there there is zero attack coming from the right.
