Paris Saint Germain have entered the race for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen, according to the Daily Mail.
The Spurs star has been looking for an exit from the London club since the summer transfer window, with his attempts to force a move unsuccessful.
PSG have registered their interest in Eriksen now though, as Tottenham seem to have accepted the fact that the Danish midfielder will be moving on.
The 27-year-old made it clear that he is looking for a new challenge away from Spurs at the end of last season.
Tottenham looked to cash in on Eriksen during the summer, with Real Madrid showing huge interest, however a deal was never agreed.
Throughout the transfer saga, Spurs have looked to tie down the Denmark international to a new contract to avoid losing their star man on a free transfer.
Those attempts by Tottenham look to be in vain though, as Eriksen has now attracted interest from French giants PSG who are looking to reshuffle their midfielder ahead of next season.
Spurs are looking to cash in on the midfielder’s departure during January, however it is unlikely that any clubs would be willing to pay a fee.
That’s because the Tottenham man can sign a pre-contract agreement with clubs in January ahead of a free transfer in the summer, with PSG and Real Madrid battling it out for Eriksen.
Spurs are resigned to losing their playmaker, and will be frustrated that his contract was allowed to be ran down ahead of a likely free transfer to one of Europe’s biggest names.
Had Eriksen been under contract, Tottenham could have demanded a huge fee and left PSG and Madrid to battle it out, meaning a big money replacement could have been brought in to offset the loss of their star man.
It’s likely that the 27-year-old will be able to choose his next destination in January without Spurs making a penny on his transfer, with the midfielder set to receive some lucrative contract offers.
