Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen lands in Italy for Inter Milan medical

Barcelona made an enquiry for Eriksen on Thursday, but failed to follow up with an offer

Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen is closing in on his move to Inter Milan, as he landed in Italy on Monday morning ahead of a medical with the Serie A side.

The 27-year-old is expected to complete a £16.8m move to Italy which could see him earn up to £320,000 per week.

Inter Milan CEO Giuseppe Marotta said: “You all know that we are negotiating with Tottenham. I am optimistic and I hope everything can be concluded quickly because the market closes on Friday and we hope to conclude the negotiations in the next few days.”

Eriksen has made 305 appearances during his six-and-a-half year spell in north London, scoring 69 goals and providing 89 assists.

Barcelona did make an enquiry for Eriksen on Thursday, but failed to follow up with an offer.

The Denmark international would become the third signing Inter have made from the Premier League this month, having already brought in Ashley Young from Manchester United and Victor Moses from Chelsea.

Inter are currently second in Serie A, behind leaders Juventus, and manager Antonio Conte has big ambitions of winning the Scudetto.
