. The Croatian will join Spurs as a free agent. The 33-year-old will work with his former boss

Antonio Conte

again, and Spurs are reportedly very close to announcing that they have signed the Croatian on a 2-year contract.

During his time as Inter manager, Conte used Perisic as a wing-back. This helped the former

Bayern Munich

player get back into form. Emerson Royal, Matt Doherty, Sergio Reguilon, and Ryan Sessegnon will have to play against him next season. Perisic can play on either side because he has two good feet. He can also fill in for Heung-Min Son and

Dejan Kulusevski

in the forward areas.

Hugo Lloris's team, the Lilywhites, also looks like it will get another veteran goalkeeper, Fraser Forster, for free. Forster will back up Hugo Lloris. Conte is a manager who has always put trust in older players over younger ones, and it looks like he'll keep doing that as Spurs' boss.

It will be interesting to see if Spurs' pursuit of Gabriel Jesus, who is wanted by Arsenal, changes now that they have signed Perisic. Conte might see the Croat as a player who can cover both his forwards and his wingbacks well. Football. London says that Tottenham is still interested in Perisic's soon-to-be-former teammate Alessandro Bastoni, who would cost the club about £50 million.
