Eriksen is facing an uncertain future right now with Real Madrid interested, while Spurs have so far failed to extend a contract that only has a year left to run.
But, regardless of whether the Danish playmaker stays or goes, it seems unlikely that Zielinski will be playing his football under Mauricio Pochettino in the near future.
The 24-year-old, who has a £60 million release clause in his current contract, is willing to commit his long-term future to the Serie A giants by signing a new deal until 2024.
The former Udinese and Empoli man has started 16 league games under Carlo Ancelotti and CalcioNapoli24 points out that he is very happy with life at the Stadio San Paolo.
But you can see why Tottenham would be interested, given that he shares a number of similarities with Eriksen. Il Mattino claimed in the summer of 2017 that Spurs had failed with a £25 million bid and Zielinski would cost a lot more these days.
