Tottenham will sign Ivan Perisic as Antonio Conte’s influence convinced him to choose Spurs for a move to London rivals Chelsea.
Tottenham secured Champions League football last Sunday by beating Norwich City 5-0 at Carrow Road.
Conte can now look forward to challenging the European elite and all that entails next season.
Tottenham not only get a financial boost from qualifying, but also a boost in prestige; Top players want to play in the Champions League and Tottenham can offer that.
Add in a £150m injection of funds from ENIC and this looks like a hugely exciting time for Tottenham.
Tottenham want to sign Ivan Perisic
Tottenham are already getting closer to their first summer signing as Inter Milan ace Perisic is set to arrive.
The Daily Mail report that Perisic has decided to join Tottenham on a free transfer.
Perisic is out of contract this summer and will now leave Inter for nothing.
Chelsea have also been keen on signing Perisic but it is claimed Conte’s influence has pushed him towards Tottenham instead.
Perisic worked under Conte at Inter Milan and won the league title together in 2021.
The pair will now be reunited in a bargain deal that gives Tottenham extra flexibility.
Perisic, 33, played mainly at left-back last season but can still play at either side in the last third.
Perisic scored eight goals and seven assists in 35 league games for Inter last season but is now away.
Add Tuttomercatoweb that Perisic has signed a two-year deal worth £4million-a-year – around £77,000-a-week – with a potential £600,000 bonus.
If those conditions are right, Tottenham appear to have gotten a pretty good deal.
Perisic isn’t getting any younger, but two years with decent wages looks like the kind of move most fans will get behind.
