Perisic accepts Tottenham offer
Ivan Perisic has accepted an offer to join Tottenham this summer once his contract with Inter Milan expires, according to The Guardian. The 33-year-old is set to sign on a two-year deal at White Hart Lane after declining a similar deal at the San Siro.
It’s believed that the Antonio Conte was a key component in engineering the transfer, with the Italian eager to reunite with Perisic. The Croatia international was heavily linked with a move to Chelsea during the Spurs boss’ reign in west London.

Perisic was linked again with a move to the Blues this summer, though the Lilywhites have come out on top. Conte and the wide-man worked together at Inter in the title-winning 2020-21 season.
Bryan Gil dilemma
Tottenham need to make a big decision over the future of Bryan Gil this summer less than a year after the Spaniard walked through the doors at Hotspur Way. The Spaniard was a shining light in La Liga last season, with his ability to dribble the ball and create chances.
Barcelona scout German Vaya Ballabriga said of Gil last season: “Right now he is Spain’s best footballer and I compare him with Neymar. He can do certain things and has great versatility, as he can play at full-back, in the middle or on the left wing. It’s impressive. I have spoken with [Barcelona’s sporting director] Raman Planes about him and he has Bryan Gil in mind.”
Much will depend on what offers arrive for the winger and there are not expected to be a shortage of them. The key for Tottenham is to ensure they do not allow Gil to slip through their fingers and become a star elsewhere.
