Tottenham continue to be linked with a move for Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic and Eurosport Italy's Stefano Dolci has given his expert view on why he believes the Croat star would be an ideal fit for Tottenham Hotspur and for Jose Mourinho in his team. Perisic has yet to play in the Premier League.

Dean Jones reported this story back on New Year's Day and made it clear that this could be a crucial deal for Spurs for the latter part of an unprecedented season.
"Mourinho hugely admires Perisic, who would add versatility and experience to his attack for the season run-in if they could find a way to strike a deal," Jones reported for Eurosport.
In today's Euro Papers, it was pointed out that the Portuguese manager reportedly already tried to sign the 31-year-old when he was manager of Manchester United.

Eurosport Italy's Stefano Dolci has made it clear that he believes Perisic should move on from his interrupted time at Inter, where he has struggled to settle, and could be an ideal fit in north London.
"Inter have desperately tried to sign a new striker to help Romelu Lukaku and, if Christian Eriksen leaves, a new midfielder in this January transfer window," Dolci said.
