Tottenham have confirmed the signing of Croatia international Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan on a free transfer.
The 33-year-old had become a target for Tottenham in recent months, as his contract began to run down at the San Siro. Over the weekend, Antonio Conte’s side reportedly reached a ‘full agreement’ with Perisic on personal terms.
And Tottenham have now revealed Perisic will link up with the team when his Inter deal expires on July 1.
Perisic, who has won 113 caps for Croatia, has signed a two-year contract with the north London club.
The move will see him reunite with Italian coach Conte. The pair worked together at Inter for one season in 2020-21.
And the partnership proved to be a success, with Conte playing Perisic 42 times in all competitions as Inter won the Serie A title.
The veteran winger proved his worth to Conte that campaign by operating in a variety of positions.
Recently, Perisic has been playing as a left midfielder or left wing-back, which should fit Conte’s system well.
The transfer sees him end his seven-year association with the Nerazzurri. Together they have won Serie A, a Coppa Italia and a Supercoppa Italiana.
In a farewell post on Instagram, Perisic wrote to the Inter supporters. “After 254 games, 55 goals, 49 assists, 3 trophies and 18,934 minutes spent on the pitch wearing this glorious jersey; my journey here has come to an end,” he said.
