Dembele is reportedly wanted by Inter, but Spurs are demanding that Perisic is included in any potential deal.
Tottenham have been long-term admirers of the Croatian international, and Spurs fans appear to be keen on the trade deal.
Even though most Tottenham fans want to keep hold of Dembele, due to his importance to the team, there is a realisation that bringing in Perisic would also benefit them.
And most Spurs fans are behind the potential trade deal, as they think they would come out winners.
If Perisic is secured in any deal involving Dembele that will be fantastic business. As good as Dembele is, he’s coming to the end of his best years and Perisic is a class player.— Rossiter21 (@Rossiter21) June 3, 2018

Good. Perisic>dembele, and yes, Ik they’re different positions— Doni (@TheClassyKorean) June 3, 2018
Perisic is amazing, in his prime and would add instant impact to the team rather than a young player who would be good in a few years time— thomas spice (@spice2001) June 3, 2018
Whether Tottenham would be able to complete a swap which included Perisic for Dembele remains to be seen.
Perisic is only a year younger than Dembele but, crucially, he has a much better injury record than the Belgian.
If Perisic was brought to Spurs, he would improve their attacking options, but Mauricio Pochettino would still have to find another central midfielder to replace Dembele.
