Tottenham have been tipped to close the gap with Manchester City and Liverpool after signing Ivan Perisic.

Spurs have announced the signing of the Croatia international on a two-year contract and will join the club when his contract at Inter Milan expires on July 1.

It could be a major blow for Spurs, who are on the rise under manager Antonio Conte, and talkSPORT’s Darren Ambrose believes they are closing the gap between the two runaway teams in the division.

Ambrose also suggested that Perisic’s signing marks a change of era in terms of how the club’s recruitment policy works.

Ambrose said on Drivetime: “They will get closer [to the title race] they will come much closer than they did.

“I think Antonio Conte came in and he almost made Daniel Levy let go of the chains, he backed him up.

“And what he has done since coming to the football club, what he has done with what was an average team, he has them in the Champions League.

“I think that made Daniel Levy say ‘I’m going to support him’, and that’s an exceptional signing by the way.”

Perisic reunites with Conte, who managed him at Inter. They won the Serie A title together, ending Juventus’ stranglehold on Italian football.

European football expert Kevin Hatchard echoed Ambrose’s idea that Spurs are truly a growing club.

“Perisic has been brilliant for Inter, a very important player for them – scoring goals, scoring goals,” Hatchard said on Drivetime. “His conversion to a winger suits him perfectly.

“He was at Bayern, he was brilliant when he was there and I think he was a bit surprised that they didn’t try harder to keep him. He’s been excellent at the highest level for a time.

“I think he’s a great signing for Spurs… they have it all. Qualifying them for the Champions League and being able to keep Conte is going to be huge for this club.
