TuttoMercatoWeb have claimed that Ivan Perisic, who is rumoured to be on Tottenham’s radar, could leave Inter Milan for free at the end of the season if the Serie A club do not meet his contract demands.
Inter Live then claimed that Spurs were facing competition from Wolfsburg for the 32-year-old’s signature, with the player alleged to be keen on reuniting with Antonio Conte in North London.
If TMW’s latest update is to be believed, Tottenham might have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Perisic due to the developments in the player’s contract negotiations with Inter.
It is explained that there is still a big difference between the Croat’s contract demands and what the Nerrazuri are willing to offer.
Perisic is said to have asked for a salary of around €6m (£5m), a figure that Inter are not willing to pay.
It is asserted that the experienced wide man could leave the San Siro on a free transfer in the summer should another club be willing to pay him that amount.
Spurs Web Opinion
I am not convinced that Spurs hold a serious interest in Perisic. The speculation likely stems from the Conte connection more than anything else. I suspect Paratici and Conte will be looking at players of a younger profile as part of their rebuild at Tottenham.
