Inter Milan GM Marotta sorry losing Perisic to Spurs: He wanted to try the Premier League

Inter Milan GM Beppe Marotta is sorry they're losing Ivan Perisic to Tottenham.

The veteran Croatia midfielder is in London to sign for Spurs.

Marotta said: “It's shame but he wanted to try the Premier League. We couldn't give him a better offer.

“His choice, in simple terms, was based on a different future to what he has here. Maximum respect for this and a lot of gratitude.

“We will find the right substitute and, in any case, we've already got Robin Gosens who we trust and admire."
