Inter Milan deny contact with Tottenham for want-away star Christian Eriksen

The Dane is likely to leave North London in January.

One of the possible destinations is Milan, Italy.

Inter Milan CEO Giuseppe Marotta has confirmed the club’s interest in Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen, but he has denied any ongoing talks between the two sides or the player. The Spurs ace has been heavily linked with a move to Inter Milan, with speculation having been rife the Italian club want a cut-price deal for the Denmark international.

Eriksen’s contract at Spurs will expire at the end of the season, but it has been reported the Nerazzurri are willing to part with €20 million to sign him in January. He is free to sign a pre-contract with any club of his choosing but the Italian side are hopeful of being able to convince the 27-year-old to join them during this month instead.

“Inter are often linked with players of great quality, and that is flattering, but we have not had any contact with Tottenham,” he told Sky Italia.

“Eriksen is a talented player, I don’t need to tell you that, and he will be a free agent in June. I think many clubs are interested, he is an interesting player, but I will not stand here and tell you that we are in negotiations with his club or agent. I simply say that he is an important and interesting player. We are looking for a midfielder and an outsider, we are having several contacts with companies and agents to try to improve this position.

Real Madrid, Paris Saint Germain, Juventus and Manchester United are all also reportedly interested in signing Eriksen. He has made 24 appearances across all competitions in 1386 minutes on the field and scored three goals, whilst providing three assists.
