Ivan Perišić (Croatian pronunciation: [ǐʋan pěriʃitɕ]; born 2 February 1989) is a Croatian professional footballer who plays for Italian club Internazionale. He usually plays as a winger, but can also be deployed as an attacking midfielder or second striker.
A product of the Hajduk Split youth academy, Perišić made name for himself while playing for Club Brugge, where he was the Belgian Pro League top goalscorer and was named Belgian Footballer of the Year for 2011. This earned him a transfer to Borussia Dortmund, with whom he won the 2011–12 Bundesliga before signing with VfL Wolfsburg for €8 million in January 2013. He remained there for two-and-a-half-seasons, winning the 2015 DFB-Pokal Final, before moving to Inter for €20 million.
Perišić made his debut for the Croatia national team in 2011, representing the nation at UEFA Euro 2012, 2014 FIFA World Cup and Euro 2016.Close
