Why This Brilliant 27-year Old Serie A Star Can Be Vital For Tottenham During The Champions League Games

Tottenham’s search for top recruits next season seems to be hitting top gear as the club are linked with a move for Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic. The 27-year-old Croatian is set to feature for his national side in Euro 2016 and is set to be involved in a tug of war between two London clubs, Chelsea and Tottenham.

Perisic had only moved to Inter Milan after spending a couple of seasons at Wolfsburg and seems to be set for another move as he looks to play in the UEFA Champions League. The 27-year-old midfielder is one of the most versatile players out there as he can play in a range of positions and that could be a great option for any team that wants someone who can do multiple jobs.

The Croatian played 43 games last season for club and country and scored 10 goals while providing 6 assists for his teams. Perisic is known for his tough tackling and aerial ability and would be a great option in the heart of the midfield, though he can play out wide as well. His greatest asset is his counter-attacking threat, something which might appeal to Tottenham’s Mauricio Pochettino.

Perisic also links up extremely well with the rest of the team and his one touch passing is brilliant in setting up other players looking to move into spaces really quickly. The need for someone who can do a job in multiple positions could be the most important thing for Tottenham next season as they would have to play in multiple competitions and getting quality would not be that easy.

The Croatian though might not be the most creative player in the world but that would not be much of a problem seeing the quality that the team possesses in the attacking third. What they need is someone to step up when Mousa Dembele or even Eric Dier are not in action. The likes of Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb could not step up much last season but Ivan could be the man who does the job for the London club.

Tottenham have to be smart in their recruitment policy as Pochettino does have a habit of promoting the youth team and he might have an ace up the sleeve next season with some of the other players from the youth academy moving up to the main team. We have seen how well Harry Kane and Dele Alli have done and a few other stars could be coming up but Perisic is the complete product and Spurs moving for him does make sense and with the Champions League on their side, they would be able to attract most of the players they might want to sign next season.
