Ivan Perisic is set to earn a colossal sum of money from Tottenham, almost as much as Son Heung-min.

Ivan Perisic is expected to earn an eye-watering salary at Tottenham, which is expected to be close to Son Heung-min’s.

After agreeing to join Spurs when his Inter Milan contract expires next month, Perisic, 33, is having a medical in London today. He’ll be reunited with former manager Antonio Conte, and he’ll be handsomely compensated for his decision to move from Serie A to the Premier League.

The proposed two-year contract for the winger is worth £180,000 per week, according to The Telegraph. Son is thought to be earning £192,000 per week after extending his contract last year, making him the club’s third-highest earner.

Harry Kane, predictably, earns the most money. Since signing a five-year deal in 2018, he’s been paid £200k per week.

Next season, Perisic will almost certainly be a first-team regular for Spurs in the left wing-back position. When Inter won the Scudetto in Conte’s final season as manager, he placed him there, and he kept it after the Italian left.

In 35 league appearances during the 2021-22 season, he scored eight goals and added seven assists. Conte has swooped in to fill a void.

Should Perisic start the season as the starting quarterback? Let us know what you think in the comments.

Perisic is likely to usurp both Ryan Sessegnon and Sergio Reguilon in his 3-4-3 formation. The experienced Croatia international, who has 113 caps for his country and scored in the 2018 World Cup final, has allowed his Inter contract to lapse, allowing Spurs to offer him a higher wage without having to pay a transfer fee.

Inter’s chief executive Giuseppe Marotta expressed regret over Perisic’s departure on Monday (May 30). In the Premier League, however, he wanted to try something new.

“We weren’t able to make better offers because his decision was based on a different future than the one we have now.” For that, I have the utmost respect and a heartfelt thank you.”
