Report: Eriksen 'ready to agree' to Inter move in January, Spurs want €20M

Christian Eriksen is “ready to agree” personal terms to join Inter in January, reports the Guardian’s Fabrizio Romano.

The Dane will now wait to see if the Italian club and Tottenham Hotspur can shake hands over a transfer fee and trigger his immediate move to Milan. Inter apparently opened formal talks with Spurs by tabling a €10-million offer, but it’s understood the north London outfit values Eriksen at €20 million.

“Played very well, very professional which is what I expect from him,” Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho said of Eriksen’s performance in Tuesday’s FA Cup win over Middlesbrough, according to the Evening Standard’s Alex Young.

“If his decision is to leave, I think he has to leave with his head up, if he gives everything which is what he tries to do for the team.

“Fans, it’s always to respect, we have to respect but I think the boy did it for us today.”

If Inter and Spurs fail to reach an agreement, Eriksen will face the prospect of seeing out his Tottenham deal, which expires at the end of the season. The 27-year-old will then be available on a free transfer.

Inter and other foreign clubs can strike a pre-contract agreement with Eriksen now, which would secure his services in the offseason for nothing.

An earlier report from Romano claimed Inter were offering Eriksen a four-year contract.
