Solskjaer has told his superiors to meet the £20m asking price set on the youngster by the Magpies in order to integrate his signings quickly before the new season starts.

However, a move for the reported wantaway Spurs midfielder could still be on the cards.

The 27-year-old has reportedly refused to sign a new deal with the Londoners and he has stated in an interview with Ekstra Bladet he is seeking a “new challenge”.

Spurs Web Opinion:

Eriksen’s desire to move away this summer is no secret, however, it would be highly unlikely for a player like himself to drop from a side playing Champions League football to a side in the second tier of European football.
