If rumours are to be believed, West Ham United may want to sign Ivan Perisic.
According to Gazzetta Della Sport, West Ham are interested in the Inter Milan winger, who helped Croatia to a World Cup final last summer.
There's a good reason as to why the summer transfer window is often referred to as 'Silly Season' and this might be a prime example of it.
But if there is genuine interest from the Hammers, it could be a game-changing signing from their perspective.
Perisic, valued at around £31.5 million [Tuttomercatoweb], has the sort of profile which would take the Irons to a new level, on and off the pitch.
On it, we're talking about a huge name in European football and one which has been repeatedly linked to Manchester United down the years.
Off the pitch, it raises the club's profile and would probably also make life in East London more appealing to other targets, if Perisic were to sign on.
Plus, he only turned 30 in February. The Croat still has quite a few years left in the tank and if West Ham could pull off this deal, they wouldn't regret it.
