Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic impressed and scored in Croatia’s 4-2 World Cup final defeat to France in Moscow on Sunday, and Tottenham Hotspur fans have urged their club to sign the 29-year-old, rated at £36m by Transfermarkt.
The attacker impressed out wide for his country throughout the tournament in Russia, and he brought his nation back on to level terms with a brilliant finish into the far corner from just inside the penalty area.
It was his third goal of the 2018 World Cup, and he also showed what a big-game player he is with a goal and an assist in the 2-1 extra-time victory against England in the semi-finals, which ended Gareth Southgate’s side’s dreams of lifting the famous trophy.
These Tottenham supporters, some of whom have delivered their verdict on the story that one of their top targets could be set to join one of their London rivals, were quick to have their say on Perisic’s performance via social media, and while one told the chairman Daniel Levy to “please buy him”, another believes he “would fit perfectly as a Kane alternative or left-sided FWD”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

Man, I’ve wanted Perisic at Spurs for soooo long and with every game I see that drifting further and further away. What a goal!
