“Been told he can leave” – Spurs ready to sell ace despite impressing in pre-season.
According to the latest report from Daily Mail, Ivan Perisic has been told he can leave the club.
Following Tottenham’s 5-1 win over Lion City Sailor, Mail Sport’s Matt Barlow penned down the 5 takeaways from Tottenham’s impressive performance.
There be suggested that Ivan Perisic who Postecoglou is playing on the left of the front three may not have a future at the club.
He has been put in superb performances in both of Tottenham’s pre-season games and Barlow suggests it could be because he’s playing to leave.
“He has been told he can leave if the right move comes up.
Maybe he’s playing for a move because he looks far more effective than he did. Maybe he is happier in this role. Maybe it’s simply the deception of preseason.”
The versatile player joined Tottenham last summer on a free transfer from Inter Milan, during the tenure of former manager Antonio Conte.
With Conte’s departure from Tottenham, Perisic’s future with the club is uncertain.
According to reports, he is interested in returning to Italy, specifically to Inter Milan.
Fenerbahce of Turkey has also been mooted as a possible destination for the Croatian winger.
Perisic had a solid season with the Spurs. Last season, he appeared in 44 games across all competitions, scoring one goal and assisting on 12 others.
It remains to be seen where Perisic will end moving as the transfer market progresses, but his pre-season displays have certainly piqued the interest of possible suitors.
