Tottenham look to be closing in on yet another summer signing with Ajax allowing starlet midfielder Christian Eriksen to enter into talks with the North London club.

Ajax are looking to secure £12m from the sale of the 21 year old Danish international and given the youngster has just one year left to run on his current contract such a fee seems a decent price that Tottenham can certainly afford to fork out.

Gareth Bale is edging towards completing a world record transfer to Real Madrid and having already signed Etienne Capoue, Nacer Chadli, Roberto Soldado and Paulinho, with Erik Lamela also on his way, Andre Villas-Boas still has the funds to fork out for the Ajax man, who has helped his side to three consecutive Eredivisie titles.

Attacking midfielder Eriksen will offer Tottenham a fresh creative option as well as offering a very real goal threat to help add further strength in depth to a White Hart Lane squad that could well end up being better equipped to secure a Champions League spot than if they had managed to keep hold of Bale.

Eriksen has racked up over 150 appearances for Ajax and has 34 Danish national team caps to his name.
