Tottenham’s Eriksen transfer bid to Inter Milan: Mourinho speaks

Tottenham have not received a transfer bid for Christian Eriksen and the midfielder will play against Watford on Saturday, says manager Jose Mourinho.

The Dane is out of contract in the summer and has been linked with a January move to Inter Milan.

The 27-year-old, who joined Spurs in 2013, has featured in 18 of 22 Premier League games so far this season.

“You have to ask the agent and Inter because they know more than me,” said Mourinho on Friday.

“If they are confident it is because they are ready to make us an offer, which didn’t happen yet.”

...€20m bid offer ready

Italian outfit Inter have offered Christian Eriksen a four-year contract and are preparing to submit a €20m bid to Tottenham this month.

The Denmark international is in the last six months of his contract in north London and is free to talk to clubs abroad over possible moves at the end of the season.

Tottenham have even given Eriksen a measly €20m price tag as they look to avoid losing him on a free transfer, with The Guardian’s Fabrizio Romano confirming that the asking price is being considered by Antonio Conte’s Inter.

The Italian side initially approached Eriksen’s agent, Martin Schoots, with a four-year contract with the view of completing a deal for the end of the season, but the 28-year-old’s low price is making the club weigh up a move this month.

Gianluca Di Marzio adds that Inter could even look to offer Uruguay international Matías Vecino as part of any move for Eriksen this month.

It isn’t suggested one way or the other whether Tottenham would be interested in signing Vecino during the January transfer window.

The Nerazzurri have already held talks with Eriksen’s agent, while Paris Saint-Germain are also expected to hold talks in the coming days.

It’s unknown if Harry Kane’s recent injury could impact Tottenham’s stance over selling Eriksen this month, although an extra €20m (roughly £17m) would assist the club in their efforts to find a stop-gap during the January transfer window.

Spurs have most notably been linked with a move for AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piątek, but they’ve also been keeping an eye on Celtic’s Odsonne Edouard – although he won’t be available until the summer transfer window.

If Tottenham are looking to promote from within, however, then Troy Parrott could be given the chance to become the fourth young Republic of Ireland striker to make an impact at a senior level in England this season.



Jose Mourinho give reason for his fears

José Mourinho has claimed that the making of a documentary about Tottenham’s season has been a distracting influence. mk

Since taking over from Mauricio Pochettino in November, Mourinho has overseen the club’s rise from 14th to seventh in the Premier League table, although Spurs have suffered a number of disappointing results along the way.

The former Manchester United boss’ tenure will be documented in a series to be screened on Amazon. However, Mourinho has revealed that he has found the TV cameras that follow his every move distracting.

When asked if he was concerned about the attention that will be on him when Spurs take on Liverpool on Sunday, the 56-year-old quipped that he was used to being filmed constantly.

“I feel the cameras because they’ll be on my face. I walk in the tunnel it’s on my face, even before the game finishes the camera will be on my face,” he began.

“These guys (points to Amazon cameraman) these guys are 24 hours. Only when I go to the toilet they’re not coming with me! Apart from that they’re always with me.

“Of course I feel it. But disturb me? No, only Amazon disturb me, not the cameras on matchday. I don’t think about it. Of course it’s not me against Jurgen. Big match – Tottenham v Liverpool. Let’s enjoy it.”

The documentary will be released later in the year and speaking in October, Amazon’s director of European originals told the Telegraph that she was confident the series would be a success.


“We are delighted to be embarking on this journey with Tottenham Hotspur and delivering another extraordinary look at one of the most exciting teams in the Premier League,” Brown said.

“All or Nothing has become a franchise defined by true quality and unprecedented access, and that will be no different with this series.

“We can’t wait for Prime members worldwide to again experience the highs and lows of a world-class team in the greatest football league on earth.”
