A New Name: Christian Eriksen
Tuesday August 16 2016
Serie A champions Juventus are said to have signalled their interest in Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen after talks over a new contract broke down.
The 23-year-old is thought to have demanded a five-fold increase on his salary to £150,000 a week in order to remain at White Hart Lane - a figure almost double that of Spurs' current highest earner Hugo Lloris.
According to Gazzetta World, Juventus are more than happy to meet Eriksen's salary expectations, while fellow Serie A outfit Inter Milan - now managed by Eriksen's former Ajax boss Frank de Boer - are also said to be interested.
The Danish international still has two years remaining on his contract with Spurs and is a key part of manager Mauricio Pochettino's plans going forward.
Eriksen has been an ever-present in the Premier League for Spurs for the last two seasons, contributing 16 goals and six assists during that period.
