Chelsea have suffered a transfer blow as summer target Ivan Perisic is on the verge of a move to Premier League rivals Tottenham.

Spurs boss Antonio Conte made Perisic one of his top targets after guiding the north London club to a top-four result and agreeing to stay for at least another season.

Perisic was a key part of Conte’s title-holders Inter Milan in 2020-21 and has opted to reunite with the Italian, agreeing a two-year deal with Tottenham, according to The Independent.

Since joining Inter from Wolfsburg in 2015, Perisic, who helped Croatia reach the World Cup final in 2018, has made more than 250 appearances for the club.

But the 33-year-old is now a free agent after Inter decided against meeting his demands for a new three-year deal worth just under £100,000 a week.

As a result, Perisic has held talks with Tottenham, Chelsea and Juventus over a free transfer and will now sign for Spurs.

It happened earlier this month reported that Chelsea have reached an initial agreement to sign the Croatian star but Thomas Tuchel is now likely to miss one of his summer transfer targets.

Chelsea are back in position to work on transfer deals after the Premier League approved a £4.25billion takeover of the club led by LA Dodgers co-owner Todd Boehly.

The Blues, who finished third in the Premier League this season, have been linked with Sevilla star Jules Kounde, Manchester City striker Raheem Sterling and Brighton defender Marc Cucurella.

Despite a poor start to the season, Tottenham finished just three points behind Chelsea, relegating north London rivals Arsenal to last place in the Champions League.
