Christian Eriksen TEAMtalk

Tottenham want a world-record fee if they are to sell Christian Eriksen, while Arsenal are eyeing a swap deal for a new right-back, according to Sunday’s papers.



Tottenham reportedly want a world-record £200m for playmaker Christian Eriksen if Real Madrid come calling in the summer.

The north London giants are desperate to try and get the 26-year-old to commit to a new long-term contract with the club, but now appear to be resigned to the fact they will have to sell a star man who has just over a year left on his current deal.

Eriksen is said to have dreamt of playing for Real since he was a child and the Spanish giants are known to be showing a huge interest in the Dane.

LaLiga rivals Barcelona are also in the hunt, but Eriksen is only interested in heading o the Bernabeu at this point.

However, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is once again ready to play hardball over one of his top players and will only accept a bid of more than the current world-record transfer fee of £198m.

Levy hopes that a £200m valuation will force suitors to give up on their interest in the attacker, while discussions over a new deal continue in the background.
