Italian giants Inter Milan have upped their offer for Tottenham’s unsettled midfielder Christian Eriksen, who looks set to leave the Tottenham Hotspur stadium this month.
That is according to Sky in Italy, as relayed on talkSPORT, who claim that the latest offer would see Spurs receive a fee of £11 million for the 27-year-old, plus two bonuses which would see the amount paid raise slightly higher over time.
It is thought that Inter’s previous offer for the Denmark international was closer to £8.5 million, which was too low to tempt Tottenham into doing business.
However, the new proposal is believed to be closer to what chairman Daniel Levy was hoping for, although he could still attempt to hold out for £20 million.
The London club are resigned to losing Eriksen, who is set to be out of contract this summer and does not want to sign a new deal.
Therefore, Spurs would have to sell this month in order to receive a fee for the player, who joined from Ajax in the summer of 2013, or face losing him for free in the summer.
Last week, Jose Mourinho seemed to hint that Eriksen will be on his way out this month, saying he should “leave with his head up”.
And that exit seems to be moving closer, although an agreement is yet to be reached.
The report goes on to say that Eriksen’s agent, Martin Schoots, will meet with Levy on Tuesday in an attempt to resolve his client’s future.
Schoots has already met with representatives from Inter, who are currently managed by former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.
