Susic close to ‘dream’ Inter switch

Tino-Sven Susic is close to securing a “dream” transfer from Hajduk Split to Inter in January.

The 22-year-old midfielder, who featured for Bosnia-Herzegovina during the World Cup in 2014, has attracted interest from several clubs having scored five times and assisted the same number in 16 league and European matches.

Susic has revealed he is close to sealing a move to Roberto Mancini’s side and hopes the deal can be wrapped up as early as possible in the January transfer window.

“I am on vacation in Belgium and waiting to hear about it,” he told Goal. “The transfer window in Italy starts on January 5, so maybe I will go straight from Belgium to Milan.

“It is great that such a big club wants me and there is a big chance that a transfer can happen. I know Hajduk want €5 million and I hope that asking price won’t be a problem or something that could stop the transfer.

“Until I sign I am not supposed to say much but I really wish for this transfer to come true, I would love to play for Inter.

“I have some other offers too so there is very little chance I will stay in Hajduk, but Inter are my favourites and the biggest club that is after me. I believe and pray that it will happen.

“The last year has been unbelievable for me: I played in the World Cup, was Hajduk’s best player and now I am on the verge of a big transfer.”

If the deal goes through, Susic will be joining Lukas Podolski at San Siro, with the Arsenal attacker in Milan to undergo a medical on Saturday before completing a six-month loan switch.
