Tottenham star interested in Juventus transfer amid talk of £16.5m bid

Serie A title holders Juventus have taken a keen interest in Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen, according to the Daily Mail.

The attacking midfielder was one of seven stars signed by former boss Andre Villas-Boas with the funds received from the sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid, and the Danish international is arguably one of the only two captures who have impressed at White Hart Lane.

Winger Nacer Chadli had an average first campaign at the North London side but certainly proved more effective in 2014/15, but it’s Eriksen who has best proven himself since his move from Ajax to Tottenham two years ago.

In his first season at the club, Christian Eriksen reached double figures in both goals and assists, and last term, the cultured creative talent netted a dozen goals in all competitions.

The Daily Mail claim that Juventus are only willing to offer £16.5m for the Tottenham star and also state that the thought of a move to the Turin-based side appeals to the Danish playmaker, as does the prospect of playing Champions League football, something Mauricio Pochettino has been unable to secure for Spurs.

Tottenham paid a very reasonable £11m fee for Christian Eriksen (via The Guardian), and he isn’t a player Pochettino can afford to lose as the 23-year-old is perhaps the Argentine manager’s most inventive attacking option.
