According to Eurosport, Tottenham Hotspur head coach José Mourinho greatly admires Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic and something could happen in the January transfer window.
While the Portuguese do not expect business to be done this month, he wouldn’t mind adding more depth to his squad.
The Spurs have been below par in the final third of their last four games, scoring just three and adding just two, and a forward with more experience and quality could help increase their best four chances.
Perisic was linked to Tottenham in the summer, and it will be interesting to see if they will go after his signing this month.
Mourinho loved the Croatian international when he was Manchester United boss, and could be eager to sign him as he looks to end the campaign on an impressive note and with silverware.
The 31-year-old has scored once and assisted twice in nine Serie A starts for Inter this season, and it’s not a big part of manager Antonio Conte’s first-team plans.
That’s why he spent last season on loan at Bayern Munich, and could leave Inter this month in search of regular playing minutes.
Perisic can play in the front row and behind a forward, and is one of the best finalists in the game.
Tottenham could use his versatility and quality in goal, but it remains to be seen if President Daniel Levy will be interested in doing business in the winter transfer market.
Mourinho has relied solely on the brilliance of Harry Kane and Heung-min Son so far this season, and having a player who can help take that burden off them will be a huge relief.
Perisic has what it takes to be a good addition to the Spurs attack, and getting it this month could make a big difference to his campaign.
