Tottenham Hotspur’s Croatian winger, Ivan Perisic, is reportedly still on track to join Croatian club Hajduk Split, despite his recent injury setback.
According to Croatian newspaper Sportske Novosti, an agreement is in place for Perisic’s move to Hajduk.
Tottenham has recently completed the signing of another Croatian talent, Luka Vuskovic, from Hajduk Split. Vuskovic, a 16-year-old wonderkid, has penned a five-year deal with Spurs that will keep him at the club until 2030.
However, he won’t be joining the senior team until he turns 18 in 2025.
Vuskovic is highly regarded for his defensive skills and ability to play the ball out from the back, making him a promising prospect for Tottenham.
If he fulfills his potential, his development could prove to be a significant asset for the club, potentially saving them money in the transfer market in the future.
Sportske Novosti’s report suggests that everything is in place for Perisic to make his move to Hajduk Split in January.
The deal is said to be in the final stages and only requires the formal paperwork to be completed.
Tottenham appears willing to let Perisic join Hajduk on a free transfer, as his contract with the Premier League club is set to expire next summer.
The highly promising young defender possesses the potential to solidify his position as a first-team player for Tottenham.
His development could ultimately translate to substantial savings for the London club in the transfer market should he fulfill his potential with them.
