Tottenham star Christian Eriksen has reportedly agreed on a deal to join Inter this month.
The Danish midfielder played all 90 minutes in the Spurs 2-1 win over Middlesbrough on Tuesday evening, but reports from Italy may indicate that a move is imminent.
Eriksen wants to join the Serie A giants and personal terms are not expected to pose a problem, but the two clubs are somewhat separate in the player’s assessment, according to Sky Sports in Italy.
The broadcaster reports that Inter has offered £ 8.5 million, but Tottenham wants to double that tax for the 27-year-old.
Eriksen was mocked by fans before Spurs’ FA Cup clash on Tuesday, after also being booed during Tottenham’s 1-0 defeat to Liverpool on Saturday.
But Jose Mourinho asked supporters to respect his decision.
“He played very well, very professional and that’s what I expect from him,” said the Tottenham boss.
“If his decision is to leave, I think he must start with his head held high, if he gives everything that is what he tries to do for the team. Fans must always respect.”
Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano says that Eriksen has agreed to join Inter and wants to move “immediately”.
He tweeted: “Christian Eriksen has just agreed to join Inter in January – he would like to move immediately and is” ready to accept “personal terms”.
Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain is ready to compete with Inter for the signing of Eriksen.
PSG monitored the developing talks between Spurs and Inter and decided to make their move.
Just six months after his contract, the leaders of the French league are able to approach Eriksen and his field directly to probe them.
Eriksen has rejected several Tottenham contract deals because he wants to experience another culture and football outside of England.
Giovani Lo Celso and Erik Lamela were on goal for Tottenham on Tuesday before a late goal by George Saville gave hope to Middlesbrough.
But Spurs resisted and faced a trip to Southampton in the fourth round on January 25th.
