Inter Milan have reportedly agreed on a four-year deal through to 2024 with Christian Eriksen, but now have to convince Tottenham Hotspur to settle for a fee below 20 million.
The 27-year-old is out of contract by the summer and doesn’t look keen on remaining at Tottenham Hotspur, despite the change of management, with Jose Mourinho now the manager at the dugout.
According to Gazette.it, a verbal agreement for a contract until 2024 has been sketched in the last few hours between the Nerazzurri leaders and his entourage of Christian Eriksen, with Dany Levy’s signature now the only missing requirement.
Inter Milan want to beat down the price placed on the expiring Danish midfielder, with Tottenham Hotspur to demand a fee within the range of 20 million.
Spurs would, however, be wary of the fact that allowing a deal to fall through to the summer, would mean losing Christian Eriksen for free to the Nerazzurri and this could force them to sell below their former asking price.
Inter want this deal done in the winter, with Antonio Conte looking to keep up the fight for the Serie A title, with reigning champions Juventus, heading into the second half of the season.
