Tottenham winger Ivan Perisic is said to have already played his last game for Spurs, and is reportedly linked with a return to Croatia.
The 34-year-old is currently sidelined due to a significant ACL injury, ruling him out for the remainder of the season.
Croatian side Hajduk Split have expressed interest in signing Perisic, and the club’s sporting director, Mindaugas Nikoličius, has recently confirmed the ongoing discussions with Tottenham.
The possibility of a deal being concluded this month depends on various factors, with the player’s injury standing as a potential obstacle to an immediate transfer.
Fabrizio Romano has now shared the latest regarding the Croatian. He confirmed that Hadjuk Split are ‘still dreaming’ of the winger and have him as their ‘top target’.
The transfer expert claims that the club are going to try their best again to ‘make the deal happen’ this month, although the success of the move hinges on the confirmation from doctors that Perisic will be fit to play before May 2024.
