Christian Eriksen Currently Undergoing Medical With Tottenham Hotspur

christian eriksen2 Christian Eriksen Currently Undergoing Medical With Tottenham Hotspur

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.

    While its great spurs are investing money on new players its going to take a while for them all to gel together. Lets see how they do in the winter months when stoke are sticking the boot into them on a cold wet snowy night.

    The fact that none of the so called big teams around Europe never made a move for him might suggest he’s been over hyped but at 8m there isn’t much downside for spurs in this deal. He needs to play and play regularly for him to continue his progress.

    When Arsenal lost Fabregas they did what? Spurs lose Bale- this is how you respond- take the hit get max value and invest in a long term nucleus- this is the model for how to deal with losing an asset
