Report: Tottenham would demand £35 million for Christian Eriksen, Daniel Levy more willing to sanction Erik Lamela transfer

Tottenham WHL

Tottenham stars Eriksen and Lamela are wanted by Juventus.

Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen is wanted by Juventus before the transfer window closes, and a report in the Standard has set out the asking price said to be on his head.

Daniel Levy would be looking for at least £35 million if he was to entertain any offers for the Danish star, considering he is vital to any success the Lilywhites may achieve.

Along with Hugo Lloris and Harry Kane, Eriksen is one of three players who is an almost guaranteed first-choice selection, and Spurs always look a worse side if the playmaker is not on the field.

The £35 million asking price is likely to ward off any potential offers for Eriksen, but it is hard to deny that if an approach was made at that transfer fee, Levy would surely consider selling the 23-year-old.

If no deal can be struck for Eriksen, Juve are also keen on bringing in his Spurs teammate Erik Lamela, believing he can also fulfil the number 10 role that they had planned for the Danish international.

The report states that Levy will be much more willing to sanction a deal for Lamela, although the Serie A club would prefer a loan deal with the option to purchase him, should he impress during the 2015/16 campaign.

It is believed that Levy is receptive to offers for Lamela, and Juve are tempted to make an approach, believing that the Argentine international’s success in Serie A - when he scored 15 times in 33 games - can be repeated in Turin.
