Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen is reportedly on the verge of joining Inter Milan for $22 million (€20 million) in a move that could see him earn up to $418,000 (£320,000) per week.
Eriksen, 27, has been strongly linked with the Spurs exit after six-and-a-half years in north London, and his profile at the club has plummeted since Jose Mourinho took over as manager.
The Guardian’s Fabrizio Romano wrote that Inter have decided to meet Eriksen’s valuation before his contract expires in June, offering him a deal worth a base salary of $340,000 (£260,000) per week, plus add-ons.
Eriksen has featured in all but two of Tottenham’s 12 Premier League games since Mourinho was named as Mauricio Pochettino’s successor in November, though only three of those have been starts.
Eriksen—capped by Denmark on 95 occasions—has scored 69 goals and recorded 89 assists in 305 appearances for Spurs, per Transfermarkt.
The Dane was derided for his largely disappointing substitute appearance in Wednesday’s narrow 2-1 win over Norwich City, some suggesting he was too focused on not getting injured ahead of a potential transfer.
Antonio Conte’s side have seen recent success recruiting from the Premier League, with Romelu Lukaku enjoying a prolific start to life in Milan following last summer’s move from Manchester United. Alexis Sanchez (on loan) and Ashley Young have also joined from Old Trafford in the past six months.
Eriksen looks as though he’ll be next to join the English exodus en route to the San Siro.
