Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen has agreed to complete a transfer to Inter Milan this January, according to the latest reports in Italy.
Eriksen is out of contract at the club at the end of the season and the 27-year-old star has made it clear he has no interest in extending his contract as he is seeking a move away from the PL.
Manchester United held talks to land Eriksen, but the midfielder informed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side he had ‘no interest’ in a transfer to Old Trafford and instead favoured a move to a foreign club.
Sky Sport Italia claims the Danish has reached an agreement to join Inter this winter and the Serie A club have now entered into talks with Tottenham.
The two sides are some distance apart with regards to the technically gifted attacking midfielder’s valuation, though.
While Inter have made an offer of €10 million (£8.5 million) for the playmaker, Tottenham are holding out for a fee closer to €20 million (£17 million).
Talks could rumble on until the end of the transfer market, with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy reluctant to lose to Eriksen for a cut-price fee.
Eriksen is one of Spurs’ longest-serving stars, making over 300 appearances since his 2013 move from Ajax and netting 69 goals for the north London outfit.
There were some boos for Christian at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Tuesday night as Jose Mourinho’s side overcame Middlesbrough to reach the fourth round of the FA Cup.
