Inter coach Inzaghi on Juventus, Tottenham target Perisic: I hope he stays

Inter coach Simone Inzaghi said he hopes Ivan Perisic stays at San Siro, amid reports of interest from Juventus and Tottenham.

The Croatia international has enjoyed a stellar season at left-wing back and scored twice in the 4-2 Coppa Italia final.

However, following that victory, he criticised Inter for not renewing his contract and waiting for it almost expire and has been heavily linked with a free transfer to Juve, while Tottenham have also registered an interest.

Asked at a press conference ahead of their final-day clash with Samporia whether hopes Perisic will stay, Inzaghi told reporters: “Of course it’s what I want.

“I have a meeting with the club next week to talk about next season. I have a really open and frank relationship with the club.”

Perisic joined Inter from Wolfsburg in 2015 and quickly established himself as one of the trickiest wingers in Serie A.

In 2017, he was close to leaving Inter amid interest from Jose Mourinho and Manchester United but stayed at San Siro.

Deemed surplus to requirements by Antonio Conte in 2019, he was loaned out to Bayern Munich where he helped the German side win the Bundesliga, German Cup and Champions League.

Upon his return he excelled on a new left wing back role, which he is still fulfilling under Inzaghi.


  1. The only attacker from rossonneri

    He is consistent as in form, dangerous winger am sure saint slow ball allegri need him more

  2. boh!

    I was surprised ManU wouldn’t up their offer for Peresic, he was exactly what they needed at the time. Also surprised Bayern didn’t want him, which makes me think he must be unlikable as a person to work with because his skill set is unique.

  3. Interista

    Well, Conte did a great work on him transforming him from a attacking winger in 4-3-3 to a backside in a 3-5-2, i see him as more davestating as ever! Gosens is barely getting minutes on the field!
