Barcelona want to replace Andres Iniesta with Christian Eriksen this summer. The Dane has emerged as their top target to replace the club legend, who joins Vissel Kobe in Japan this summer.
Sport in Spain are suggesting that Tottenham would want a fee of around €100 million (£87.7 million) to even begin considering the sale of their star midfield operator this summer. It is a fee Barcelona can certainly afford and Eriksen would, of course, struggle to reject such a move.
Today he was even asked about the rumours during a press conference with the Danish national team. However, as reported by Sport, he refused to discuss ‘rumours’.
Real Madrid are also now being linked with the player. Marca reports that Eriksen is being targeted as the eventual replacement for Luka Modric at the Bernabeu.
It looks as though Spurs will always have a tough task fighting off interest in their Danish wizard.
Zaha contract offer
Tottenham are believed to be in the hunt for Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha this summer. The Ivory Coast international had an excellent campaign with the Eagles and now Spurs are believed to want him in North London.
Today it is being reported that Palace are taking the necessary steps to ensure that does not happen.
According to a report in The Guardian, the Selhurst Park club are set to offer Zaha a new deal.
The report suggests he will be made the highest earner at the club, ahead of Belgian striker Christian Benteke. It will mean an increase on his already inflated wage of £110,000-a-week.
If Palace can convince Zaha to sign the deal, it will all but end the interest from Tottenham and leave Mauricio Pochettino contemplating other options.
Dier backs his buddy
Eric Dier has leapt to the defence of his best buddy and team-mate Dele Alli. the England star failed to live up to his lofty expectations last season, although did still have an impressive campaign. Speaking to Sky Sports Dier made it clear that he feels Alli has been unfairly treated at times over the 2017-18 season.
It is always nice for your mates to have your back. Hopefully, the pair can now thrive at the World Cup with England.
