Christian Eriksen could play a part for Tottenham against Southampton on Saturday despite reportedly edging closer to joining Inter Milan, according to Football London’s Alasdair Gold.
On Friday evening, Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano – who is always reliable when it comes to transfers – revealed Spurs and Inter Milan have finally agreed a fee for Eriksen’s transfer and the Dane will sign his contract in the next few days.
Hearing that, one would think Eriksen has played his last game for Tottenham. But it seems that might not be the case.
Alasdair Gold, another trusted voice in the Spurs sphere, claims Eriksen – as of Friday evening – is still expected to travel with the squad to Southampton for Saturday’s FA Cup fourth round tie at St Mary’s.
The Christian Eriksen saga isn't quite at its conclusion yet. As I understand it, at this moment in time, he is expected to travel to Southampton tomorrow if called upon by Jose Mourinho. Would seem daft if he were to pick up an injury though and scupper the club getting a fee.

Eriksen was dropped to the bench for the midweek victory over Norwich City in the Premier League and was booed by sections of the Tottenham support when he came on as a substitute.
It would certainly be strange if the 27-year-old played against Southampton as an injury could see his move to the San Siro called off. With that in mind, we don’t expect him to feature – check out our predicted Spurs XI here.
