By Will Butcher
Christian Eriksen is on the brink of signing a four-year contract worth £75,000 a week after a breakthrough in talks that have lasted since September 2015, according to a report.
The 24-year-old’s representatives have been locked in negotiations with the Tottenham hierarchy, with Italian giants Inter Milan reportedly monitoring the situation.
The London Evening Standard claims that the former Ajax man is now on the brink of putting pen to paper with the north London side on Tuesday in a deal that would be worth £15.6m over four years.
Tottenham’s number 23 has less than two years remaining on his current White Hart Lane deal, alerting a number of big clubs including the likes of Juventus, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain, according to the report.
It now seems that Eriksen has decided to commit his long-term future to Mauricio Pochettino’s side, after the transfer window shut last week.
