Tottenham one of several English clubs eyeing Serie A star on potential free transfer

Tottenham are one of several English clubs eyeing the Serie A star in a possible free transfer

Tottenham are among the clubs looking at a possible transfer to Inter Milan and Croatian star Ivan Perisic.

Perisic, now 33, has been on the Inter Milan books since 2015. During that time, Perisic scored 50 goals and assisted 46 in 245 games for the Nerazzurri.

Despite his advanced age, Perisic continues to impress the Italian side, scoring five goals and making four assists in 28 league games from left-back this season.

Perisic was also a key part of Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan side that won Serie A for the last time, and the Italian now appears to be open to a reunion with the 113-times capped international.

According to journalist Ryan Taylor, Tottenham are one of several clubs from England and Germany waiting to find out if Perisic, whose current deal expires in the summer, will extend his contract with Inter Milan.

He added that Tottenham are open to exploring a deal on a free transfer, provided the numbers make sense:

Will Perisic be suitable for Tottenham?

Although Perisic is approaching his mid-30s, he is likely to make a strong addition to the Spurs squad.

As he is a left-wing player by nature, he can provide cover for Heung-min Son, which will likely be necessary if Spurs secure European football next season.

Elsewhere, Perisic was smoothly entering into Conte’s five-way defense at Spurs. And given that the Italian was playing with Matt Doherty outside the left-back position until his latest injury, it seems clear that Conte is keen to improve on his current options in that place.
