The Danish international, who only has a year left to run on his contract, admitted earlier this month that he was ready to take up a new challenge.
It was generally seen as a come-and-get-me plea to Real Madrid but his dream move is now hanging by a thread.
French legend Zidane wants to link up with his countryman, Manchester United’s Paul Pogba, who has set his heart on a move to the Spanish giants.
Perez favours making a move for a cheaper option Eriksen but it seems that the Dane wants to make a decision on his future within the next couple of weeks.
And it could be that he is ready to sit down and discuss a new four-year deal with Champions League finalists Tottenham if Perez loses his internal battle.
Reports in Spain this week claimed Real Madrid are set for a massive summer clearout.
Real are looking to do away with £223million worth of talent with Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez and Marco Asensio among the headline departures.
Mateo Kovacic, Marcos Llorente, Dani Ceballos, Mariano Diaz and Borja Mayoral could also leave the Bernabeu.
Real are understood to be keen on raising money to fund deals for more incomings.
They have already spent around £190million on Luka Jovic, Eden Hazard and Ferland Mendy and are keen to add more players.
Pogba himself has previously admitted it would be a dream of his to move to the Bernabeu.
After United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed at Old Trafford in March, he said: “At the moment I’m happy in Manchester. I play. There’s a new coach.
Real Madrid is one of the biggest clubs in the world. I’ve always said it is a dream club for every player.
Paul Pogba in March
“Real Madrid is one of the biggest clubs in the world. I’ve always said it is a dream club for every player.”
Real boss Zidane has made no secret of his desire to sign Pogba.
“I know him personally,” he said. “He brings so much and there are few players who bring as much as he does.
“He’s a midfielder who knows how to defend and how to attack. But he is not my player, he is at Manchester.
“He has always said that, after Manchester, Madrid has always interested him. So when his experience at Manchester ends, why not come here to Madrid?”
