Bayern Munich face competition from Tottenham and Leeds United for the signature of Ivan Perisic, reports in Italy say.

Perisic left Inter Milan to join Bayern on a season-long loan only last summer, with the ‘Bavarians’ forking out €5million to secure his services temporarily.

The 31-year-old forward has been nothing short of impressive at the Allianz Arena and seems to have managed to convince Hansi Flick of his qualities.

Although Bayern initially refused to pay an additional €20million to keep the Croat in Bavaria permanently, they are now negotiating with Inter after experiencing a change of heart.

As per Football Italia, Tottenham and Leeds are looking to challenge perennial Bundesliga champions for the signing of Perisic.

Spurs’ boss Jose Mourinho was keen on bringing Perisic to Manchester United during his time at Old Trafford but failed to get the deal over the line at the time.

He has now reignited interest in former Wolfsburg winger as he looks to put his stamp on the Tottenham squad starting this summer.

Meanwhile, Leeds are hopeful of adding quality and depth to their squad after securing promotion to the Premier League.

But, the Whites’ rumored interest should be taken with a grain of salt as they have other priorities on their agenda at the moment.
