Two weeks ago, SportWitness relayed news from Italy that Everton are one of the sides to have ‘tested the waters’ to sign Ivan Perišić.
Tottenham Hotspur have now arrived on the scene for the Inter Milan player, according to reports.
The 32-year-old has seven months left on his contract and has been rumored to be close to a return to Germany, where he had spells with Borussia Dortmund and VfL Wolfsburg in the past.
Sport1 now claim BVB have looked at the Croatia international as a backup target, if they fail to sign Red Bull Salzburg star Karim Adeyemi.
The winger turned left wing-back, who spent two years between 2011 and 2013 at Dortmund, is not ready to return to his old club.
It’s claimed a ‘move to England seems most likely’, where ‘there are currently talks’ with Spurs. Antonio Conte arrived at the north London club last month and the manager knows the player well, having coached him at the San Siro.
Conte’s presence can give Tottenham an advantage over other suitors to sign Perišić. Should he decide against signing an extension with Inter, the Croatian will be available on a free transfer next summer.
