Inter Milan have completed the signing of Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen, who has signed a four-and-a-half-year contract that will keep him at the San Siro until June 2024.

The Nerazzurri announced the 27-year-old’s capture via their official website on Tuesday, Eriksen taking his leave of north London after almost seven years in the English capital.

The Dane’s departure brings a close to one of the more depressing chapters during the early stages of Jose Mourinho’s managerial tenure at Tottenham, the once hallowed playmaker leaving almost with a shoo out the exit.

David Hytner of The Guardian confirmed the cost of the transfer to be $22 million (€22 million), which could prove to be a bargain fee for a player whose contract was due to expire in June.

Eriksen had seven direct goal involvements in five meetings with Antonio Conte’s Chelsea while he was at Stamford Bridge (2016-18), and the now-Inter chief will be pleased to have the puppeteer on his side.

Inter are three points below Serie A leaders Juventus after 21 games this season, and they hope the arrival of Eriksen will help drive them to their first Scudetto in a decade.

Tottenham announced Giovani Lo Celso’s permanent signature along with Eriksen’s exit, the former penning a five-and-a-half-year contract following early success in his loan from Real Betis.

Eriksen scored 69 goals and recorded 89 assists in 305 appearances for Tottenham, where his biggest feat was a runner-up finish to Liverpool in the final of last season’s Champions League.
