Perisic between Bayern and Spurs

Inter have rejected Bayern Munich’s €12m offer to buy Ivan Perisic, but using him as part-exchange for Tanguy Ndombele did not go well with Tottenham.

According to Calciomercato.com, the Champions League winners want to keep hold of Perisic after his impressive loan spell.

That cost €5m and there was an option to buy that was allowed to expire, because Bayern were trying to renegotiate it at a lower fee.

The initial proposal of €12m was turned down, as Inter are asking for at least €15m.
