Transfer News: Eriksen Heading To Liverpool? | Spurs Set To Table £20m Bid
Latest transfer rumours. Today, Liverpool are in the race to sign Christian Eriksen and Tottenham are set to bid £20million for Aston Villa’s Christian Benteke.
With the summer transfer window now open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Liverpool are in the race to sign Christian Eriksen and Spurs are set to bid £20m for Christian Benteke.
Eriksen to Liverpool?
First up and the Metro are reporting that Christian Eriksen will either join Liverpool or Roma if he leaves Ajax this summer.
Eriksen has just one year left to run on his current deal at the Amsterdam Arena and the report claims that the Danish starlet is ready for a new challenge, with reports emanating from Denmark that suggest he’ll join either Liverpool or Roma this summer. The Italians have also been linked with a move for Arsenal’s Gervinho so if they manage to tie that deal up any time soon, it may leave the path clear for Brendan Rodgers to snap up Eriksen.
It would be a major boost to the Reds if they could land the highly-rated 21-year-old as they recently missed out on the signature of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and with Rodgers keen to add some creativity to his squad, the Danish international certainly fits the bill.
Spurs ready £20m bid
Next up and the Daily Mail are reporting that Tottenham are set to open the bidding for want-away Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke by tabling a £20m offer.
The report claims that Villa have made it clear they will only entertain offers in the region of £25m for the Belgian international – who submitted a transfer request last week.
However, Spurs are said to be confident they can land the 22-year-old for less and Daniel Levy is ready to test Villa’s resolve with a £20m bid after Randy Lerner rejected the possibility of taking any players in exchange.
The Mail suggest Benteke is ready to sign a five-year deal once the two clubs agree a fee and is hoping the situation can be resolved before he’s due to return to pre-season training next week.
