Paris Saint-Germain are preparing a late swoop for the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen, as they look to reinforce their midfield area, following the departure of Javier Pastore, according to Goal.com.
The French giants are reportedly willing to spend as much as £100 million to tempt Spurs to sell one of their best players, but it’s highly unlikely that Daniel Levy would consider selling a player this late in the window. (per Express)
Another huge stumbling block that will probably prevent Tottenham from selling any of their players is the fact that they can no longer register new signings for the Premier League, as the new rule implemented this year brought an early end to the transfer window in England.
No Premier club can register new players after the deadline of Thursday, August 9.
Therefore, it’s hard to see Tottenham – or any other Premier club for that matter – sell any important players until next year and the winter transfer window.
However, even with all that in mind, it’s not impossible for Levy to decide to sell Eriksen before the deadline of August 31, since the Danish international still hasn’t signed a contract extension with Tottenham.
All in all, Spurs might have to cash in on their midfield maestro before they expected.
Meanwhile, Eriksen’s teammate Danny Rose could follow suit and join PSG before the European transfer window ends on August 31. Alternatively, the English left-back could opt to join Schalke, but that move would likely have to be a loan.
What do you think? Should Tottenham sell their players before the transfer window ends in Europe, even though they can no longer sign replacements?
