Everton ‘join race’ for Perisic

With Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg looking set to snub Everton’s advances for Tottenham Hotspur, the Blues could be set to lock horns with Spurs again in the transfer market this summer.

Reports in Germany claim both clubs are interested in signing Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan.

The Croatian has spent the season on loan at Bayern Munich, and while the Bavarians have the option to sign the wideman permanently, they are unlikely to take up their option after landing Leroy Sane from Manchester City.

According to Fussball Transfers, cited by the Boot Room, Everton and Tottenham will now rival Manchester United for his signature, with the Red Devils interested in a swap deal involving Alexis Sanchez.

The report claims that Inter could be willing to do business at €15m (£13.5m) for the 31-year-old, taking into consideration his age and 2022 contract expiry.
