Ivan Perisic undergoes medical ahead of free transfer to Tottenham

According to ESPN, Tottenham are set to sign Ivan Perisic this week with the Croatian winger already in London to complete his medical before signing a two-year contract. The 33-year-old reportedly wanted to stay at Inter but contract talks broke down earlier this month.

Despite entering the 2021/22 season with just a year on his contract, many expected Ivan Perisic to re-sign with Inter Milan and sign an extension. However, while talks between the two sides have reportedly progressed, the Croatian has continued to play a key role in the Nerazzurri’s season. He finished the term with 19 goal contributions in all competitions, including 15 in the league. It helped Inter stay in title contention until the very end, albeit long distance rivals AC Milan eventually won the trophy.

Still, Perisic was yet to sign an extension with the club, although reports said things were progressing until they failed to do so, with talks suddenly stalling. Reports said it was because of a discrepancy in numbers and it saw Tottenham go for Spurs and Antonio Conte reportedly wanted to sign the 33-year-old. Things have progressed with the North Londoners as ESPN have reported that Perisic is now in London ahead of a medical.

The report has revealed that the Croatian wants to move to Tottenham because of Antonio Conte and is ready to leave Inter Milan on a free transfer. And this despite a contract offer from Inter and even Juventus on the table with the presence of Conte who would have been key for Perisic. Moreover, the 33-year-old will sign a two-year deal with the club although it won’t be their final move this summer as ESPN further reported that Conte demanded six summer signings.
