Christian Eriksen

North London club Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly set the transfer fee for one of their midfielders according to the latest reports emanating from the media in the United Kingdom.

Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen could leave the club in the New Year with several clubs interested in his services dating back to last summer.

According to the report from the London Evening Standard, Christian Eriksen now has a price tag of £40m as they bid to sell him when the January transfer window reopens in the coming days.

He had a price tag of £100m in the summer when the Danish international had one year left on his current deal at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Christian Eriksen has six months left on his Spurs contract at the moment and the former Ajax Amsterdam playmaker can start to speak with foreign clubs over a free transfer next summer as from January 1.

The 28-year-old was linked with Manchester United in the summer and the Red Devils are expected to return to try and sign him.

He had a very good offer from Manchester United in the summer but the player was holding out for a transfer to Real Madrid which never came.

Donny Van Der Beek To Consider England Transfer

West London giants Chelsea are keeping tabs on Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare who’s seen as a long-term replacement for key player N’Golo Kante.

The interest of Chelsea in Boubakary Soumare was confirmed by The Athletic with Kante linked with a move away from the club.

The French international player was previously linked with a transfer to Real Madrid last year though the Spaniards have since moved on from him to other midfield options like Ajax Amsterdam midfielder Donny Van Der Beek who’s expected to sign for the Los Merengues this summer after an agreement of £47m was reached for his transfer as per the report from various media outlets.

N’Golo Kante has uncharacteristically missed several games for Chelsea this season due to several injuries stemmed from his decision to play through the pain barrier for the Blues in the Europa League final last season.

Kante was rushed back from injury to face Arsenal in the final of the Europa League which ended in a 4-1 win for Chelsea.

Boubakary Soumare is only 20 years but he has enhanced his reputation after his impressive performances for Lille since the start of this campaign.

Soumare is also attracting interest from Premier League rivals Manchester United.

Chelsea have been very poor in the Premier League in recent weeks as highlighted by the disappointing 1-0 loss at the home of injury-hit Newcastle United at the weekend in their last league game and it doesn’t get better when they face London rivals and rejuvenated team Arsenal at home on Tuesday night.

The Blues can take solace from the earlier meeting between the two teams this season in the Premier League which saw Chelsea come from behind to beat Arsenal 2-1 away from home with the aid of two late goals.

Chelsea have won just one of their last four games in the Premier League but they are still able to hang on to their place in the top-four positions on the league log.

They have a five-point advantage over fifth-placed Manchester United and a win over Arsenal will extend it to eight points with the Red Devils not in action until Wednesday when they face Burnley at home.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard could make some changes to his team especially in defence ahead of the London Derby clash with the Gunners.

Chelsea XI vs Arsenal: Kepa Arrizabalaga; Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, Kurt Zouma, Emerson Palmieri; Jorginho, Mason Mount, N’Golo Kante; Willian, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Tammy Abraham.

If he joins Inter Milan, Victor Moses would be the fourth player from the Premier League to join the Italians in the last six months after Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez and Ashley Young.

Romelu Lukaku and Sanchez joined the Nerazzuri last year, while Young was a £1.3m signing from Manchester United.
