Paris Saint-Germain could be set to flex their financial muscle this summer with a move for Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen, according to Football London.
Spanish giants Real Madrid are still in pole position for his signature, as per the report, but even if they opt not to pursue his signature, his Spurs future is still in the balance.
The Dane was part of Mauricio Pochettino’s team that were beaten 2-0 by Liverpool in Saturday’s Champions League Final.
Eriksen is out of contract next summer and Spurs won’t risk losing an influential member of their team on a free transfer.
The Mirror previously quoted that Spurs want £130 million for the attacking midfielder and it remains to be seen whether Real Madrid or PSG will cough up the substantial amount of cash.
The Parisians are desperate to conquer Europe with their substantial wealth. Stealing Eriksen from under the noses of the La Liga outfit would give them a tremendous chance of success on that front.
The Danish magician has been sensational for Spurs. In 277 appearances he has bagged 66 goals and registered 86 assists.
Eriksen is reluctant to pen a new deal and that leaves Spurs with a conundrum.
Both Real Madrid and PSG might think the valuation is far too high, considering they can land Eriksen for free next summer.
It seems unlikely that Spurs will get £130 million for the 27-year-old, but the price tag offers a firm indication that they won’t be ripped off for one of their best players.
Eriksen is capable of playing for one of Europe’s best teams and he could be a real force at either of the interested parties.
