    Ivan Perisic is leaving Inter Milan for a “fresh challenge” in the Premier League, according to Inter Milan chief executive Giuseppe Marotta, amid speculations that the Croatian is likely to reunite with former boss Antonio Conte at Tottenham Hotspur.

    Perisic, whose Inter contract expires next month, is said to have traveled to London on Monday for a physical with Tottenham Hotspur, who finished fourth in the Premier League.

    Since joining Inter from VfL Wolfsburg in Germany in 2015, the 33-year-old has made over 250 appearances as a left wing back or up front.

    Under Conte, he won the Serie A title in 2021 and inspired Inter to win the Coppa Italia final earlier this month by scoring twice in extra time against Juventus.

    “There is regret,” Marotta told reporters on Monday. “But he wanted to try a new experience in the Premier League.

    “We were not in a position to make better offers, simply his choice was based on a different future than the current one. Maximum respect for that and a big thank you to him as well.”

    In the upcoming transfer window, Marotta has not ruled out offers for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala and Chelsea attacker Romelu Lukaku.

    “Dybala and Lukaku? From our side there is no anxiety, we don’t have to do anything in a hasty way,” Marotta said. “The hope is that Dybala can play with us.”

    In Serie A, Simone Inzaghi’s team finished second, two points behind AC Milan.
