Football rumours from the media
Christian Eriksen’s price seems to be rising, while Tahith Chong could be leaving Manchester.
What the papers say
French champions Paris St Germain are willing to spend big on Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen, the Daily Mirror reports. PSG see the £14million in-principle agreement between the Denmark international and Inter Milan as “a bargain” that can be bettered, and the Ligue 1 giants can approach Eriksen’s camp as there is just six months left on his contract. If he crosses the channel the 27-year-old would compete for a spot in an attacking midfield that already includes Julian Draxler, Leandro Paredes and Macro Verratti.
One player who seems likely to be leaving his club is Manchester United’s Tahith Chong, whose agent Erkan Alkan has been photographed meeting with Inter representatives in Italy, according to the Mirror. The Dutch winger, 20, is down the pecking order at Old Trafford and his contract expires in June.
Arsenal may have accidentally confirmed Eddie Nketiahhas been loaned to Bristol City. The striker spent the start of the season at Leeds before returning to the Emirates. The Sun says Aston Villa, Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest were all interested in signing the 20-year-old, but Bristol City appear to have won the race after the Championship club’s logo appeared on the player’s profile on Arsenal’s website.
