Conte key as Spurs challenge Chelsea for Inter Milan midfielder Perisic

Tottenham are making a move for Inter Milan midfielder Ivan Perisic.

Inter want to keep the 33-year-old, but are struggling to reach an agreement as reports in Italy claim that he is asking for a three-year deal worth £100,000-a-week.

Chelsea and Newcastle have previously been linked with a move for Perisic, who has 113 caps for Croatia and scored in the 2018 World Cup final.

ESPN says Tottenham are the latest club to join the race for his signature and do not mind paying his wage demands but are unlikely to offer a three-year contract.

The report adds that Perisic is open to a reunion with Antonio Conte, who guided Inter to the Serie A title last season.

However, it is claimed that while nothing has been agreed with any club, the Croatian would prefer to stay in Italy and sign for Juventus.
