Tottenham Hotspur could be in serious danger of losing playmaker Christian Eriksen, with La Gazzetta dello Sport claiming that Juventus have joined Serie A rivals Inter Milan in actively targeting the star.

Eriksen has been a key member of the Spurs side for the last three years since his move from Ajax in 2013, and has not missed a single Premier League fixture since the 2013-14 season.

However, a report from the Telegraph has claimed that the Danish international is demanding a huge improvement to his current £32,000-per-week contract at White Hart Lane, of which he has two years remaining.

It is thought that Eriksen's agent wants the midfielder's wage almost tripled to £150,000, which would be almost double the highest salary currently being paid by the club.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is notoriously resilient in his transfer negotiations, and those lucrative demands are unlikely to have been met too warmly.

A report last week claimed that Italian side Inter Milan wanted to reunite Eriksen with his former Ajax boss Frank De Boer, and La Gazzetta now suggest that Serie A champions Juve have  also been alerted.

The Italian paper asserts that the Bianconeri have had Eriksen in their sights for some time, and would be prepare to offer him an increase in salary, although whether they would stretch as high as £150,000 is unclear.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is building a team capable of challenging for the title, and despite his new signings and the emergence of young stars such as Dele Alli, Eriksen remains a key piece of the puzzle.

To lose the midfielder would undoubtedly be a huge blow, but if a contract offer in the desired vicinity is not forthcoming from the North London club he could turn his attentions elsewhere.
