Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly considering a move to steal in and beat Bayern Munich to the signing of Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic this summer – and Bayern fans have urged the Croatian ace to leave.
German outlet Fussball Transfers have claimed that 31-year-old Perisic has emerged as a target for Tottenham this summer, with Jose Mourinho scouring the market for cheap options that he can bring to north London.
Perisic is currently on loan at Bayern where he has scored five goals and created eight more in 27 appearances. Bayern boast an £18million permanent clause in his loan deal, but they do not want to pay such a fee.
Inter are aware that in the current climate, clubs are going to reduce their asking prices. It means Inter will accept offers in the region of £13.5million for the ex-Dortmund and Wolfsburg star. But Bayern only want to pay £9million.
That may allow Tottenham to steal in and pay the required fee to sign Perisic this summer, with Jose Mourinho renowned for being a fan of the player. Inter are keen to sell, with SempreInter claiming he earns £125,000 a week.
Bayern Munich supporters have reacted on Twitter to the report that states Tottenham are interested in signing Perisic in the coming months – and many are desperate to see the back of the hard-working winger.
