According to reports from Calcio Mercato Web, Roma are plotting to sign Christian Eriksen during the negotiations with Tottenham Hotspur for Antonio Sanabria.

Tottenham are taking a proactive approach in the transfer market and after seemingly sealing the deal to sign Victor Wanyama from Southampton, the Daily Mail have claimed that Spurs also recently opened talks over the signing of Antonio Sanabria from Roma.

The reports state that Tottenham have placed a bid of around £11.5 million for Sanabria and the transfer coming into fruition is a distinct possibility.

Roma had signed Sanabria for a fee of around only £3 million from Sassuolo in the summer of 2014 and the Italian giants are in line to pocket a huge profit from the potential sale of the 20-year-old to Tottenham.

In addition, Roma are planning to turn the tables on the Premier League side by attempting to sign Spurs star Christian Eriksen during the negotiations for Sanabria – if reports from Calcio Mercato Web are to be believed.

Roma director of football Walter Sabatini is believed to be keen on recruiting Eriksen this summer and will reportedly look to convince Tottenham to part with their star midfielder while the two parties discuss a move for Sanabria.

Tottenham fans could well be a bit concerned by the prospect of losing Eriksen to Roma as the Danish international had previously admitted to Calcio Mercato that he is a big fan of the Italian giants and maybe tempted by the offer to finally play for his beloved club.
