Juventus and Inter Milan are currently locked in a fierce battle for the Serie A title, and now it seems they are about to fight for the services of Christian Eriksen of Tottenham Hotspur too. According to Manchester Evening News, the pair of Italian clubs are considering a move for the Danish international in January.
Eriksen’s contract expires at the end of the season, and though manager Jose Mourinho has expressed a wish that both he and defender Jan Vertonghen should follow in the footsteps of Toby Alderweireld and sign a new deal, there hasn’t been much movement on that front when the midfielder is concerned. It appears likely that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy would accept a cut-price deal in January rather than lose the player for free in the summer, and that has apparently attracted the interest of the Italian giants.
Eriksen was heavily linked with Real Madrid last summer, and though no move materialized, he informed Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who had contacted him about the prospect of a move to Old Trafford, that he would rather go to Spain. It remains to be seen how he feels about Italy.
