Tottenham set to rival Chelsea in the race for Serie A star

Perisic has spent a large percentage of his time as a winger, especially during the early years of his career, but has recently converted into more of a wing-back. The Croatian international is set to leave Inter Milan this summer, due to his contract expiring.

According to Sports Mediaset, Perisic had recently agreed a deal with Chelsea, but a fresh report from ESPN has claimed Tottenham are ready to rival Chelsea in their pursuit of the Inter Milan star, as seen in the tweet below.

With Antonio Conte and Thomas Tuchel both utilising a wing-back system, Perisic could be the ideal signing. Although usually used on the left-hand side, Perisic is right-footed, so his versatility could make him a useful squad addition for both sides.

Chelsea have suffered injuries to Reece James and Ben Chilwell this season, and none of Spurs’ full-backs have nailed down a starting spot. Perisic could add much-needed competition to both London sides, and his experience could be crucial in helping some of the younger players.
