Euro giants eye move for Tottenham contract rebel - report

By Dominic Toner

Inter Milan could swoop for Tottenham attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen, according to a report.

The Evening Standard claimed last month that Eriksen, who has entered the final two years of his contract, rejected Spurs’ latest offer and is chasing more money.

Italian outlet Calico Mercato claim that Inter could move for Eriksen once they name Frank de Boer as their new manager and that the pair have ‘”a great relationship”.

The BBC report that Inter have parted ways with Roberto Mancini and are set to announce former Ajax manager De Boer as his replacement.

The worry for Spurs fans is that De Boer previously worked together with Eriksen during his stint as Ajax boss and could sight a reunion with the Danish playmaker.

Eriksen has made 131 appearances for Spurs since joining in 2013, scoring 30 goals and supplying 33 assists in all competitions.

He joined on a £11.5million deal from Dutch giants Ajax after he lit up the Eredivise as a youngster, with 32 goals and 66 assists in all competitions

The midfielder played a pivotal role in Spurs’ successful Premier League last season campaign, as they competed with eventual winners Leicester for the title and finished third-placed.

Mauricio Pochettino is a big admirer of Eriksen and used him commonly last season in the midfield alongside Dele Alli, Erik Lamela, Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier.

In the latest Tottenham transfer news, Alex Pritchard has admitted that he couldn’t wait to leave the club.
