Christian Eriksen due to fly in for Inter Milan medical with Tottenham star on the verge of £17.5million move

  • Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen is closing in on a move to Inter Milan 
  • The Danish international is due to fly in to Italy for his medical on Monday
  • Eriksen was left out of Spurs’ squad which drew to Southampton on Saturday 

Christian Eriksen is reportedly due to arrive in Italy for his medical with Inter Milan on Monday, ahead of a £17.5million move. 

The Tottenham midfielder, who is out-of-contract at the end of the season, is due to fly in from London this morning, and undergo his medical examination at the Humanitas clinic in Milan. 

Inter have been chasing the Danish international for numerous weeks and the deal is now near completion, with personal terms long since agreed, according to Football Italia.

Eriksen’s final appearance for Tottenham looks set to be the win against Norwich last week 

The report details that Eriksen will sign a contract until June 2024, believed to be worth around £6.5m per season plus bonuses. 

Inter had hoped to negotiate the fee down from Tottenham’s original asking price of £17.5m (€20m) but their willingness to do the deal before Friday’s deadline means they have agreed to pay Spurs the full amount, including various bonuses. 

Eriksen’s departure seemed confirmed when he travelled but was not in the matchday squad for Spurs’ 1-1 draw at Southampton in the FA Cup on Saturday. 

The 28-year-old will be the third Inter signing this month from a Premier League club, as Antonio Conte looks to strengthen his squad.
