According to a report from Italian media outlet Gazzetta dello Sport, Tottenham remain in pole position to sign Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic, despite facing competition from London rivals Arsenal and West Ham.
The Croatian World Cup finalist is valued at €35 million (£30 million) according to Italian publication Tutto Mercato Web, and in today's market that would represent excellent value for money for Spurs, despite the winger's advancing years.
The 30-year-old has racked up seven goals and eight assists in 39 appearances in all competitions for Inter this season, and he seems to possesses all of the attributes required to be a success in the Premier League with Tottenham.
Quite where Perisic ends up next season is anyone's guess, but according to Italian news outlet Gazzetta dello Sport, Tottenham, Arsenal and West Ham all want to sign him.
They also go on to claim that Spurs are the front-runners for the Croatia international's signature, however.
Whether Pochettino, Daniel Levy and Joe Lewis will be prepared to part with £30 million for a 30-year-old, though, remains to be seen.
