Eintracht, Leipzig looking at rumored Bayern target Perisic (Transfer Market Web)

Bayern Munich might have interest in Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic, but so do a few other Bundesliga clubs. Yesterday we heard that Hertha Berlin might look at the Croatian star, but now Eintracht Frankfurt and RB Leipzig could also be in the mix:

Parting ways with Inter Milan, with a one-year long contract span left, 32-year old Croatian prominent winger Ivan Perisic is allegedly growing into a major target for Eintracht Frankfurt.

Joining back Bundesliga in 2019/20 already - a tenure which ended up as a very successful one, leading Perisic to even win Champions League, as a Bayern Munich player, though a backup one, - former Dortmund and Wolfsburg has also been briefly inquired about by both Hertha Berlin and RB Leipzig, according to latest Italian news.

Recently linked to Tottenham as well, Perisic, also suitable as a wide forward, a wide midfielder, and even as a wingback, might end up as part of a swap deal, having Filip Kostic move on the other way around.

Perisic was an invaluable part if Bayern Munich’s treble-winning run and still seems to have ore than enough gas left in the tank to be a contributor for any of the aforementioned clubs. Like we saw last night, though, Bayern Munich has not yet made contact with Perisic or his agent as of yet.
