The Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping their club will conclude a deal for Anthony Martial this summer, but recent reports suggest that they are interested in another inside-forward.
Speculation regarding Martial’s future at Manchester United has intensified in recent months due to his perceived unhappiness about his lack of first-team opportunities at Old Trafford.
According to reports from The London Evening Standard, Mauricio Pochettino is interested in signing the French international this summer in order to solve the nagging back-up striker conundrum which has troubled the club in recent years.
However, reports from FC Inter News (via Calciomercato) claim that Tottenham have made contact with Ivan Perisic’s agent regarding a potential move to North London this summer.
Perisic (valued at £36 million by Transfermarkt) played an instrumental role in Inter’s qualification for the Champions League last season by notching 11 goals and providing 11 assists from 37 Serie A appearances for the club, so it’s no surprise that Spurs are reportedly interested in signing him this summer.
The Tottenham fans have reacted to reports with plenty of enthusiasm on Twitter, although a handful of supporters believe he represents a step down from Martial and Bale who they have previously been linked with.
However, it’s highly unlikely that the sceptical supporters would still be complaining if their club eventually completed a deal for the highly-regarded Croatian international this summer.
Here’s what the Tottenham fans have had to say about Perisic on Twitter…
