Inter Milan are willing to pay £17 million for Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen this month but there are doubts over Antonio Conte’s stance on signing the player, according to reports.
Eriksen is out of contract at the end of the season and has been heavily linked with Inter in recent days. He could move to San Siro for a fee this month or on a free transfer in the summer.
Italian outlet La Repubblica (as relayed by Sempre Inter) claims Inter could soon make an offer of €20 million (£17m) for Eriksen as they look to secure a deal for the Dane in the current window rather than agreeing pre-contract terms ahead of a summer move.
However, the Mirror reports that Inter boss Conte is not overly keen on the idea of signing Eriksen. It is believed the former Chelsea manager would rather sign Arturo Vidal from Barcelona, though Inter’s chiefs are eager for Eriksen to come in.
It’s perhaps a surprise that Conte doesn’t fancy Eriksen given the 27-year-old’s instrumental performances against Chelsea during the Italian’s time in charge of the Blues.
