Report: Conte thinks Perisic will be ideal mentor for Ryan Sessegnon

Tottenham Hotspur believe Ivan Perisic could be a perfect mentor for Ryan Sessegnon to take his game to the next level as the Croatian closes in on joining Spurs this summer, according to a report from Football London.

Perisic looks set to join Tottenham in this window. His contract with Inter Milan expires in the coming weeks. And it seems that he is ready to be reunited with Antonio Conte.

Reports claimed that he will sign a two-year deal in North London. Conte viewed signing the 33-year-old as a priority. So he will be delighted that he is set to join Spurs imminently.

And it seems that Tottenham see Perisic’s move being about a lot more than just his contribution on the pitch.

According to Football London, both Conte and Fabio Paratici believe that Perisic can help mentor Sessegnon. And they think his arrival will help the 21-year-old develop in that wing-back role.

Conte reportedly has high hopes for Sessegnon.

Perisic is one of the most decorated players around right now. He has won three league titles, including two in Germany and one in Italy.

Meanwhile, he has won the Champions League with Bayern Munich and reached a World Cup final with Croatia. He has played for his country 113 times.

Perisic can play in a number of roles. So it is no surprise that Conte and Paratici see the veteran helping Sessegnon.

The former Fulham man was playing the best football of his Tottenham spell so far during the second-half of last season. If he can enjoy a little luck, he could be a massive player for Spurs in the years to come.

And the signing of Perisic could be a key moment in his Tottenham career.
