Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Christian Eriksen, is well into the final six months of his contract in North London, as rumours continue to swirl.

Christian Eriksen can also now talk to non-English clubs about a pre-contract agreement that would see him move on a free in the summer.

Eriksen joined Spurs from Ajax back in 2013 and has gone on to play across seven seasons for the Lilywhites, racking up 304 appearances and 69 goals (Wikipedia).

As one of the longest-serving current players, Eriksen will be a big miss for Tottenham, but it seems as if the club will look to sell him this month rather than see him leave on a free.

Inter Milan chief executive, Giuseppe Marotta, has now officially confirmed that discussions are taking place between Spurs and his club for an Eriksen deal.

He also added that Inter Milan are not the only club moving for the Great Dane, stating that there is ‘stiff competition’ for the midfielder’s signature this year.

Marotta said (Standard): “We’re in talks with Eriksen’s agent but there are many clubs interested in him.

“Eriksen is from Tottenham, he is not a player of ours. We know that [his contract] is due to expire. From here to say that Eriksen will arrive in January or June, a lot can happen. There is so much competition.”
