Serie A giants ‘not convinced’ by Spurs star as their title rivals agree terms

Christian Eriksen’s move away from Tottenham Hotspur appears to be edging closer, with the latest reports suggesting that Inter Milan have agreed terms with the player.

Elsewhere, that have been suggestions that Serie A champions Juventus had weighed up a move for the Denmark international but have decided against it.

Italian outlet CalcioMercato.com report that Juventus’ sporting director Fabio Paratici is “not entirely convinced” by Eriksen, who is out of contract in the summer and could be available for a cut-price fee during the January transfer window.

Antonio Conte’s Inter have fallen four points behind Juventus in the race for the Serie A title, and the Italian has often been outspoken of his desire to bring in reinforcements, having already brought Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez and Ashley Young over from the Premier League, with Chelsea star Oliver Giroud another name reportedly imminent.

It’s been suggested that a fee for the 27-year-old, who has been a pivotal player as Spurs have finished in the top four places for the last three seasons running, has been a stumbling block in negotiations between the two clubs.

 

On Monday, reports emerged that Inter had upped their bid for the player, but he remains available for Jose Mourinho and could potentially feature in Wednesday’s match against Norwich City.

Sky Italia suggest that Eriksen’s agent Martin Schoots will meet Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy as they look to make a breakthrough, with the player already having agreed personal terms with the interested party.

Giuseppe Marotta, Inter’s sporting director, told Sky Italia: “Eriksen is a fantastic player. We’re waiting and we’re still confident in this deal.”

It’s said that Levy is holding firm for a £17m fee for the player.
