Juventus’ attempts to fill the voids left by Arturo Vidal and Andrea Pirlo has seen them make a bid for Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen, the Metro report.
The Old Lady’s opening offer for the 23-year-old was worth a reported £16.5m, but Mauricio Pochettino has rejected the bid for his key man, according to the Metro. However, they have named the price that would release him to become a part of Massimiliano Allegri’s side.
The Metro suggest that they have told the Italian giants that he can join them for £35m.
The figure arguably not only represents his value to the White Hart Lane side, but also how challenging it would be for Pochettino to replace him at this late stage in the window.
He has been Spurs’ most consistent player since his arrival in 2013, and brought a creativity that allowed Harry Kane to enjoy a brilliant year last season. Without him, Spurs will surely find it a lot more difficult to turn their pressure into goalscoring opportunities.
