Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that they’ve completed the signing of Ivan Perisic on a two-year contract. The Croatia international arrives to North London on a free transfer, with his contract with Inter Milan ending officially in a month.
Speaking to Spurs TV, Perisic expressed excitement about joining the project currently run by his former coach Antonio Conte.
“When I got in contact with the coach and the sporting director [Fabio Paratici], I told them that I really wanted to come here to the Premier League since 2009, when I started playing professional football in Belgium,” Perisic told Spurs TV. “This is the moment, and I can’t wait.”
Perisic was an important part of Conte’s Inter which won the Scudetto in 2020-21. Even though he spent most of his career as a winger, the 33-year-old has adapted perfectly to the wing-back role, so crucial for Conte’s system.
