Tottenham Hotspur transfer target Christian Eriksen is currently undergoing a medical after agreeing personal terms with the White Hart Lane club, according to a report on the Dutch television network Fox Sports Central.
Ajax and Tottenham Hotspur are close to agreeing a £9.3million deal and a four year contract. Tottenham Technical Director Franco Baldini is continuing discussions with Ajax’s lawyers as well as Eriksen’s agent.
It’s quite possible that a deal for Eriksen may be done in time for the Danish creative midfielder to make his Tottenham debut against Arsenal on Sunday.
A few weeks ago before being approached by Tottenham, Eriksen remarked how he would like a move to the club, saying:
“Tottenham are a great club.
“I know from Vertonghen that it is a good club, which is interesting. But there has not been any contact.
“I do not know if I am going to leave Ajax. We’ll find out in two weeks. There are to my knowledge no negotiations right now either with a new club or Ajax. If there is a good approach (from another club), I see as an opportunity to try something new, but if nothing comes, I do not mind staying.”
According to reports in the Spanish media today, Tottenham Hotspur will finalize the deal to sell Gareth Bale to Real Madrid after a deal for Eriksen is done.
