Spurs head coach Antonio Conte and managing director Fabio Paratici are reportedly in the mix to sign Perisic on a Bosman deal this summer alongside Serie A giants Juventus.

The reliable transfer journalist added that Tottenham have made contact to sign the 33-year-old, saying that the Croatia international has been ‘approached’ by the north Londoners.
The Verdict: Wait to pounce…
Depending on whether the Nerazzurri can agree to extend Perisic’s deal, Spurs will surely be lying in wait and ready to pounce.
