Tottenham Hotspur To Go Head To Head With Arsenal For This World Cup Finalist: Wise Move For Spurs?

According to a recent report by Corriere dello Sport (via the Sun), Tottenham Hotspur are prepared to step up their pursuit of Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic in the summer. The same source has also revealed that Spurs will face stiff competition from Arsenal in the race to secure the services of the Croatia international.

Perisic Is Still A Potent Offensive Weapon After All These Years

The 30-year-old talent has been a useful tool for the Milan heavyweights over the past few years since completing a high-profile move from VfL Wolfsburg in the summer of 2015. Perisic has put in some majestic displays for Luciano Spaletti’s side during this season.

He has managed to register his name on the scoresheet on six occasions while creating eight assists in 38 matches for the Italian team this term across all competitions. 

The former Bundesliga attacker has also scored 22 goals in 78 matches for the Croatia national team so far in his career. He was a key member behind their recent success in the 2018 FIFA World Cup when he helped his nation reach the final of the biggest cup competition in world football.

What Does The Croat Wing Wizard Bring To The Pitch?

Perisic primarily operates as an energetic winger down the left flank but is equally capable of making an impact on the right or in a more central role in the number 10 position. Moreover, he also has a wealth of experience after playing in so many different European leagues throughout his career.

A Potential Deal For Perisic: A Wise Move For Spurs?

The Croatia international will add a winning mentality to the Spurs squad, and Pochettino needs more players like that if he is to build a dynasty at the new White Hart Lane. At 30, the Serie A wing sensation still has a few years left in his tank to perform at a high level.

Hence, it would be a wise move for the North London outfit to recruit Perisic at the end of this campaign. The ex-Club Brugge prospect will not only improve Tottenham’s squad depth but will also increase competition for places within Pochettino’s frontline.
