Ivan Perisic, the 33-year-old Croatian international, joined Tottenham on a free transfer this summer after the end of his contract with Inter. Ivan Perisic became Tottenham’s first signing of the summer transfer window, agreeing to a two-year deal at the North London club. Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic has agreed to a two-year deal with Tottenham, becoming Antonio Conte’s first summer signing. Inter offered a two-year contract to Ivan Perisic, valued at EUR 5 million a season, but he has decided to rejoin Antonio Conte at Tottenham.
The 33-year-old had been heavily linked with joining Tottenham. If Spurs failed to make it into the top four, Tottenham’s new signing, Ivan Perisic, may have been un-signed. The 33-year-olds arrival might not be the only reunion Spurs are understood to have been interested in, having re-signed Christian Eriksen on a free transfer. According to the PA news agency, Tottenham also agreed to sign 34-year-old goalkeeper Fraser Forster from Southampton on a free transfer.
Goalkeeper Fraser Forster has also agreed to join Tottenham after the end of his contract at Southampton, having already completed his medicals. The 34-year-old goalkeeper, Fraser Forster, underwent a medical with the club last week and is expected to sign a two-year contract, with a decision expected to be made at the end of summer. Inter Milan full-back Ivan Perisic had his medical with Tottenham Hotspur on Monday and is joining on a free transfer on 1 July, at the end of his Inter contract.
Ivan Perisic’s move to the capital would see him rejoin Inter’s Antonio Conte, with the 52-year-old hoping that the Croatian could add plenty of positive qualities. Croatian international Ivan Perisic would signal a change in Tottenham’s ordinary transfer policy, signing younger players at a sales price. It is another signal Tottenham is giving Spurs manager Antonio Conte full support. Croatia international Ivan Perisic will join Tottenham in the English Premier League at the end of June, agreeing on a two-year contract.
According to Football London, Ivan Perisic is expected to be available on the first day of pre-season training at Tottenham, despite suffering a calf injury during his final game with Inter. Antonio Conte will likely deploy Ivan Perisic at left-back for Tottenham next season. However, his natural role is higher up the pitch, where he may be used as an attacking midfielder in support of Harry Kane. Croatian international Ivan Perisic has played a number of positions throughout his career but was used predominantly at left-wing-back at Inter Milan last season, and this is almost certainly where Conte will view him. However, he may also be deployed higher at times as a rotational option to Son Heung-Min.
