Romano tweets Perisic to Tottenham 'here we go' and shares when medical could take place
Tottenham will sign Ivan Perisic and the Croatian international could have his medical with the club next week.
That is according to Fabrizio Romano on Twitter, who has tweeted his famous ‘here we go’ on the deal which he says will get done.
Romano said a Spurs medical could get done next week as Antonio Conte brings the experienced wideman in from Inter Milan.
Tottenham sign Perisic
It had been reported that Perisic had agreed personal terms already, with the deal edging ever closer.
The deal shows that Conte wants established, experienced players who can come in and do the business for him now.
Conte is not messing around and wants to build a side geared up for immediate success, rather than spend years constructing a ‘project’.
The merits of that approach can be debated, but Spurs have a world-class manager and Champions League football next season.
They are in a position of strength which they need to push on and build from and Perisic is seemingly a huge part of that.
Conte knows what he wants and Spurs have seemingly delivered it nice and early in the window, with plenty more work still to be done.
Perisic played under the current Tottenham coach at the San Siro, winning the Serie A title last year.
The 33-year-old is a free agent this summer, with his Inter contract expiring next month.
