Ivan Perisic reportedly wants a move to Tottenham – and could see his hopes realised this summer.

The Guardian suggest the Inter Milan winger was keen to sign for Spurs ahead of Arsenal during the January transfer window, but Mauricio Pochettino failed to make a big move for his signature.

Things are set to be different this summer, however, with a potential cash plus player deal in the offing, the paper adds.

“Perisic and Tottenham are now betrothed,” Tuttosport conclude, “and it seems certain that the wedding will happen in the summer.”

Whilst Perisic would undoubtedly a be a welcome addition, it beggars belief that ‘we’ are still offering clubs loose change found down the back of the sofa and Luncheon Vouchers.

This is a 30 year old, presumably designed to replace Fernando Llorente, yet we couldn’t get a deal over the line.

Beyond all the hoping, praying and belief guano, the reality is that Spurs are going to look a teensy bit ridiculous bartering for players when operating from a billon pound stadium.

Talk of players wanting to come to Spurs will be entirely negated if the investment company that owns the club refuses to pay market rate.

Pochettino needs backing because he’s earned the right to be backed.

    We don’t do transfers. We have an academy, and an U7s team. And a world class shop

    I cant see Levy sanctioning the signing of a 30yr old with no PL experience. I cant see him doing it for a 30yr world class player with PL experience. I also have questions over if he would even improve us in any way beyond squad depth. He is a good player, but I would play Son, Kane and Alli over him.

    Someone in the Italian media suggests Inter are interested in Sissoko,perhaps this links to the Perisic story.We could do worse.He’s only a year older than Sissoko and can at least score goals.
    However buying somebody at that age probably doesn’t fit our transfer policy,assuming we ever had one.

      That’s the most unsettling aspect of this report: Inter know Perisic better than anyone and they would rather have sissy.

    Tottenham is a nice club to come to when you are over the hill and done winning stuff.

    It’s nice to hear that a player wants to come to us over the arses for a change, that happens once in a blue even though we’ve been in the CL and they haven’t, but this sounds like bollocks. He’s a good player but too old for our current model.

    Perisic plays LW, doesn’t he?

    This is rubbish. He has 3 goals in 20 appearances and is the wrong side of 30. This is a last gasp attempt by his agent to get him a good deal.

    Got West Ham written all over him.

    This Perisic stuff is a load of old cobblers generated by his agent. He fits none of the needs and would probably struggle with the demands of Poch’s training regime in the near future if not now.
