Ivan Perisic (34), the ‘Conte Sign’, who had a mismatch with Son Heung-min, will eventually leave Tottenham.
Italy’s ‘Inter Live’ reported on the 11th (local time) that ‘Perisic is aiming for a return to Inter Milan. Having signed a two-year deal with Tottenham, he wants to end his contract a year early,’ reports said. It’s not just Perisic.
Tottenham, who parted ways with manager Antonio Conte, also have no intention of accompanying Perisic anymore. A best-case scenario would be a ‘swap deal’ with Perisic for the cash of Inter Milan centre-back Stefan de Frey. Tottenham is also considering terminating the mutual contract under agreement if a trade is not feasible.
His contract with Inter Milan expired at the end of last season, and he was Coach Conte’s ‘first acquisition’ this season. He worked with coach Conte at Inter Milan and won the Italian Serie A together.
However, Perisic did not go smoothly in the English Premier League (EPL). Especially with Son Heung-min, it was the worst.
Perisic is a winger, so his style is attack-oriented. He also tends to be self-righteous in his play. Son Heung-min had a hard time breaking through the attacking path because of the overlapping position with Perisic.
Perisic played 28 games in the EPL this season, scoring 1 goal and 6 assists. At the beginning of the season, he was praised for his excellent cross with accurate kicking power, but recently even this has disappeared. 스포츠토토
With Conte’s departure, Perisic’s position has narrowed further. In addition, Destiny Udoji, who was sent on loan to Udinese along with the recruitment, is scheduled to return this summer, so there is virtually no place for Perisic.
