‘Isn’t getting any younger’: Merson sends warning to Tottenham concerning Antonio Conte favorite

‘Isn’t getting any younger’: Merson sends warning to Tottenham concerning Antonio Conte favorite

Tottenham Hotspur winger Ivan Perisic is getting older, according to Paul Merson of SportsKeeda.

The former Arsenal player has stated that he admires Perisic and is impressed by Tottenham’s summer signing.

The Sky Sports pundit, however, has pointed out that the Croatia international winger is not getting any younger.

After leaving former Serie A and UEFA Champions League winners Inter Milan, the 33-year-old joined Tottenham on a free transfer in the summer of 2022.

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte previously worked with Perisic at Inter, where they won the Scudetto and Coppa Italia in 2021-22.

Perisic is currently playing as a right wing-back for Spurs.

Merson wrote: “With Tottenham, though, Emerson Royal is not good enough and tends to struggle badly when he’s off it.

“I like Ivan Perisic, but he isn’t getting any younger, so Conte has a thing or two to think about.”

Last season, the winger/wing-back was a regular for Inter, and he can easily play every week for Spurs this season.

Perisic has made five Premier League starts and three substitute appearances for Spurs this season, recording three assists.

This season, the seasoned star has also contributed one assist in three UEFA Champions League games.
