Report: Tottenham now want three-time title-winner; Conte loves his enthusiasm

Tottenham Hotspur could make a surprise move to bring Inter Milan and Croatia winger, Ivan Perisic, into the club during the January transfer window.

According to Fussball Transfers, Perisic and Inter Milan are at loggerheads over a new contract in Italy. It’s claimed that Perisic wants double the 2.5m Euros that the Serie A club are offering. And Tottenham are waiting in the wings.

Spurs boss Antonio Conte is a big fan of the winger. The pair worked together last season as Inter romped to the Serie A title under Conte. During the season, Perisic played 32 Serie A games, scoring five and laying on the same amount.

Fussball Transfers claim that Tottenham are lurking to sign Perisic if he cannot agree terms with Inter. However, it is reported that the Croatian does indeed prefer to stay at the San Siro if he can. That, of course, won’t put Conte of his transfer supremo, Fabio Paratici, off too much.

Tottenham are expected to be busy in January as it is. Daniel Levy is willing to back Conte after giving him a big money deal to replace Nuno Santo a few months back. Perisic, like so many others, is a player liked by Conte and the club.

While 32 is hardly the oldest age in football, it is a risk for Spurs if they pay Perisic big money. He’s looking for over £4m-a-year, and a long-term deal on that salary does seem a lot.

However, if Conte wants someone he knows and trusts, then Perisic might be his man. Let’s not forget, this is a player with multiple titles to his name and a World Cup final. He is by no means a run of the mill, average player.

If Tottenham do get the Croatian star, then he will improve the XI, there is no doubt.
