Christian Eriksen's agent has today been discussing 'bureaucratic formalities' with one of Inter's lawyers, with the player already agreeing personal terms with the club. It is also possible that Matias Vecino could be used as makeweight in transfer fee negotiations between the two sides.
The 27-year-old has long been linked with a move to the Nerazzurri with his contract set to expire at Tottenham at the end of the season.
Earlier today, it emerged that Inter director Piero Ausilio had travelled to London in order to negotiate a transfer for a number of Premier League players, including Eriksen. The purpose of Ausilo's trip was to secure an immediate transfer for the Dane so that Antonio Conte can use him to aid the club's Serie A title bid during the second half of the season.
It is understood that Spurs will demand a fee of around €20m (£17m) for the midfielder, with Inter's current offer being around the €10m (£6.4m) mark.
Eriksen is understood to have already agreed personal terms, though there has been some debate over the specifics of his wage package. CalcioMercato have reported that he stands to earn an annual salary of €7.5m (£6.4m) not including bonuses. However, FC Inter News believe that the figure is closer to €9m (£7.7m).
As soon as a transfer fee is confirmed between the two clubs, Eriksen's move is likely to be confirmed with the FC Inter News also reporting that the player's agent has been finalising legal issues over the deal with one of Inter's lawyer's this afternoon.
There is a possibility of Vecino being included in the deal as makeweight, despite the Uruguayan being a regular fixture in the first team under Antonio Conte recently. Vecino would not be a direct replacement for Eriksen however, as he normally operates in a much deeper midfield role than the Dane.
