Tottenham are reportedly asking for at least £80million for Christian Eriksen – but Premier League rivals are being told to stump up another £50million for the Denmark star.

Eriksen has only a year remaining on his contract at Spurs, with Real Madrid and Juventus both interested in the playmaker.

But Real and Juve are also keen on Paul Pogba, who currently remains the priority for both clubs after the Manchester United midfielder revealed his desire for a ‘new challenge’.

Despite the Frenchman’s stance, United are likely to refuse any offers below £135million – a figure both Real and Juve are currently struggling to afford.

Eriksen is seen by Zinedine Zidane and new Juve coach Maurizio Sarri as a cheaper alternative to Pogba – but Spurs are reportedly adamant over their valuation of the 27-year-old.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Daniel Levy will insist on £80million from overseas clubs. But Spurs domestic rivals have been told the price shoots up to £130million for Eriksen to move within the Premier League.

As it stands, Eriksen is likely to be left in limbo until there is a resolution over Pogba’s future. But if they are to lose one of their key players, Tottenham would prefer to sell quickly so the proceeds can be reinvested in the transfer market by Mauricio Pochettino.
