Chelsea held negotiations with £80m-rated Premier League star

Chelsea keeping tabs with Tottenham attacker Christian Eriksen and ready to compete with Real Madrid and Man United for the footballer. Sarri wants to sign a new prolific midfielder to strengthen the front-line and Danish player is the best choice in this situation. He has an excellent campaign and proves his worth one more time.

Italian coach set to spend big money on the player in July when the transfer window opens again. Los Blancos and Red Devils also keen to sign him and there will be a real battle for the footballer. His price could increase and become much more. Eriksen joined the English club from Ajax in 2013 with a €14m deal.

He is one of the best players in Premier League and a key figure for the club. In this season, Christian already played 38 matches, scored seven goals and made 12 assists in all tournament. Denmark international has contracted with the Spurs until 2020, and his release clause is nearly £80m.

The 27-year-old midfielder is a regular member of the national team and also helped them to reach the playoff in the 2018 World Cup, but after losing in a penalty shoot-out against Croatia, they kicked out from the competition.

Blues will do everything to add him this summer, but it will be difficult as Tottenham aren’t going to sell such an important figure during the transfer window. Chelsea also linked with Sporting midfielder Bruno Fernandes, Napoli footballer Piotr Zielinski, Real Madrid attacker Isco, Inter Milan centre-forward Mauro Icardi and Serbian striker Luka Jović.
