Ivan Perisic is set for a medical at Tottenham ahead of a free transfer move from Inter Milan.
Perisic has agreed a two-year deal with the Premier League side and will fly to London to finalise the move on Monday, with the Croatia international having decided on a new challenge despite Inter Milan’s desire for him to sign a new deal.
Chelsea and Juventus had also been interested in a free transfer deal for Perisic, though Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Spurs are now closing in on his signing.
The 33-year-old has spent six seasons with Inter and formed part of the squad that won the Serie A title under Antonio Conte in 2020/21.
Conte had been keen to add Perisic to his options as he strengthens at Spurs this summer with the veteran having performed in a number of different positions for the Italian side.
