Ivan Perišić ( born 2 February 1989) is a Croatian professional footballer who plays for Serie A club Inter Milan and the Croatia national team. Usually deployed as a winger, he also featured as an attacking midfielder or second striker.
A product of the Hajduk Split and Sochaux youth academies, Perišić made a 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 Milan for €16 million. In 2019, he joined Bayern Munich on loan, winning the treble.
Perišić made his debut for the Croatia national team in 2011, and represented his nation at Euro 2012, 2016 and 2020, as well as the 2014 and 2018 World Cup, reaching the final of the latter. Instrumental to Croatia's second "golden generation", Perišić is the nation's player with most goal contributions at the major tournaments (14), and the first Croatian player ever to score in a World Cup final.
