Tottenham Hotspur are looking at Inter Milan’s Croatia international Ivan Perisic, according to a report from Fussball Transfers.
32-year-old winger Perisic is about to enter the final year of his contract at San Siro and is valued at £9million by Transfermarkt.
English fans had a glimpse of him on Sunday as Croatia fell to a 1-0 defeat at Wembley in their Euro 2020 Group D opener.
Perisic scored five goals and provided five assists in 42 appearances across all competitions for Inter last season.
He spent the 2019/20 campaign on loan at Bayern Munich, helping Hansi Flick’s men to win the treble.
The report states that the list of clubs interested in Perisic is growing ‘longer and longer’.
Spurs’ arch-rivals Arsenal are said to have lodged an enquiry, while Manchester United are also monitoring the situation.
The player himself is ‘drawn’ to a move to either England or Spain.
He would only consider returning to Germany with Bayern, the report adds.
Perisic’s age may make this transfer look somewhat undesirable, but you’d expect the fee to be relatively low, and he’s proven himself to a consistent performer.
He’d be an excellent squad option for Spurs, or indeed, one of their Premier League rivals, for a couple of seasons.
Spurs will want to maximise their chances of landing some long-awaited silverware in the Europa Conference League and securing a top-four finish in the Premier League. To do that, they’ll need dependable depth, and that’s exactly what Perisic would represent.
In other news, Spurs fans flocked to Fabrizio Romano’s transfer news.
