Ivan Perisic has confirmed his status as a top quality forward during the World Cup, putting in excellent displays against Argentina and Iceland, and Tottenham should now revive their reported interest (FC Inter News), in their quest for attacking reinforcements.
Mauricio Pochettino has been linked with a number of quality wingers this summer, but so far nothing has gathered any real traction, and Perisic could represent Tottenham’s best option; in not just a practical sense, but tactically as well.
The 29-year-old has become renowned for his mature wing-play in recent years, with his marauding runs often ending with quality end product both in terms of his byline crosses and clinical low finishes, while his work-rate out of possession is unmatched by the majority of attacking players.
Perisic’s return of 11 goals and 11 assists in 39 appearances does not tell the full story of the Croatian international’s immense contribution, and the player seems a perfect fit for the Premier League. Not only that, but he is undoubtedly hitting his prime and Tottenham would likely see the very best of the winger.
The next attacking addition is being brought in to partner 41-goal striker Harry Kane, with the left wing being a priority area for Pochettino, and Perisic’s tendency to go on his left foot would massively diversify Tottenham’s attack.
