Ivan Perisic set for Tottenham medical

Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic is set to have a medical at Tottenham Hotspur on Monday and is expected to join the Premier League club on a two-year deal.

The 33-year-old’s contract with Inter expires at the end of June.

Croatia international Perisic worked with Spurs boss Antonio Conte when the latter guided Inter to the Serie A title in the 2020-21 campaign.

Perisic played 49 times and scored 10 goals this season in all competitions as Inter won the Coppa Italia.

He looks set to be Tottenham’s second free transfer of the summer, with Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster also expected to join the north London club.

The Croatia international, who has 113 caps for his country and scored in the 2018 World Cup final, has been at Inter since 2015.

He won Serie A last season under Tottenham head coach Conte after spending the 2019-20 season on loan at Bayern Munich where he lifted the Champions League.

Despite speculation around his Spurs future, Conte is preparing for next season at the club after talks with managing director of football Fabio Paratici on Friday.

Conte has been told the club aim to sign at least six or seven players, as Spurs look to back the Italian in the transfer market.

Spurs are targeting several areas, with goalkeeper, centre back, wing-back, central midfielder and striker among the positions they plan to strengthen.

Conte deployed Perisic at left wing-back during his time at Inter after bringing him back into the fold.

Goalkeeper Fraser Forster has also agreed to sign for Spurs when his deal at Southampton expires.

He has already completed his medical exams.
