Inter Milan have held talks with Tottenham star Christian Eriksen, while Arsenal could go for an Unai Emery favourite this summer, all in the papers.

 

€100M PRICE TAG FOR ERIKSEN

Inter Milan have reportedly begun preliminary talks to sign Christian Eriksen in a deal which could total €100million.

Tuttosport cited in CalcioMercato claim that Inter are keen on pursuing a deal for the Denmark playmaker, despite Spurs’ desire to keep their playmaker.

Spurs want to keep the midfielder, but moneyman Daniel Levy may decide to offload the 27-year-old with his contract expiring in 2020.

It means Spurs will need to tie him down to another long-term deal to protect his value or else sell him this summer.

Juventus are also believed to be in the running.
