According to sources in Italy, Christian Eriksen has agreed to an Inter Milan switch this January.
It was imminent that the Dane was going to leave Tottenham eventually but the mystery was to where. That puzzle seems to have been solved as Antonio Conte continues to reinforce his Inter ranks to break Juventus’ eight-year run to the Serie A title.
Eriksen’s contract is set to end in another six months and that means Spurs can only raise around €20m off of his sale. Inter have begun negotiations at €10m for the 27-year-old in fear of losing Arturo Vidal. The Chilean international seemed set on a move to San Siro but his circumstances have changed post the firing of Ernesto Valverde as Barcelona head coach.
Inter are keen on adding more strength to their midfield and could include a player to reduce Tottenham’s demands. Due to the immediate nature of the transfer, Spurs chairman, Daniel Levy could hold strong on his €20m valuation. Eriksen is one of the best attacking-midfielders in the Premier League and could easily sell for fee closer to €100m if he had more time on his contract. Tottenham made provisions for his departure by signing Giovanni Lo Celso last summer for a club-record fee from Real Betis.
