Getting top four was always going to open doors to a calibre of player Tottenham needed to bridge the gap domestically and Perisic's switch has proved that.
It also shows the pull Conte has in the game, with Perisic delighted to be reunited with the Italian.
"It's a privilege to work with a coach like this," he said.
"He's living football, every minute, ever hour, every day. When he's sleeping, he's thinking about football.
"I like his character and I know he's going to do a great job here."
Perisic signed a two-year contract on Tuesday with Spurs.
