Tottenham face a major fight to keep Christian Eriksen after Paris St-Germain joined the £100m hunt for his signature.
The French club are set to test Tottenham’s resolve to keep their midfield maestro after declaring an interest.
And PSG are understood to be willing to make cuts to their squad to finance a move for Eriksen due to UEFA concerns about Financial Fair Play.
Spurs have been trying hard to secure the Dane to a new deal, with his current one expiring in two years.
But unlike other aces at the club, including striker Harry Kane, Eriksen has so far resisted their advances as they try to tie all their top players to long contracts.
Real Madrid are also long-term admirers of the playmaker and could move for Eriksen, 26, if they sell former White Hart Lane favourite Luka Modric to Inter Milan.
With Tottenham making no signings this summer – becoming the first Premier League club to do that since 2003 – the loss of Eriksen would be a body blow to their boss Mauricio Pochettino.
