Christian Eriksen has no other suitors than Tottenham Hotspur according to a report from an Italian newspaper today.

As per the online edition of Gazzetta dello Sport, Premier League Spurs are the only club with an interest in the Denmark international, who Inter really wish to offload during this transfer window.

Any possible deal will however be far from easy to come to an agreement over, due largely in part to Eriksen’s huge wages.

The 28-year-old currently earns €7.5 million net a year, a salary which makes a move for most clubs difficult and as far as Tottenham are concerned, that is €2.5 million over their €5 million a year wage cap.

The difference could however be mitigated in the agreement between the clubs, if there is to be one.

Spurs could potentially make a move to bring out of favour Eriksen back to north London if they are to offload Dele Alli, who is subject to interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

Jose Mourinho agreed to sell Eriksen to Serie A during last year’s January window but it is said he would be grateful to have the midfielder back in his squad.
