According to reports from Spanish daily AS, Chelsea and Manchester City have joined in the race to sign Christian Eriksen. He is one of the major players Chelsea could sign in January 2019 and he is listed on the Chelsea transfer targets list 2019.
Eriksen’s current contract at Spurs expires in 2020 but he has been linked to a move away from the club lately.
Real Madrid have showed interest in the Danish attacking midfielder and are still the frontrunners to sign him.
Now, Premier League powerhouses Chelsea and Manchester City have also joined the race.
Chelsea latest signings 2019 has not been impressive so far. Eriksen hasn’t signed a new long-term contract with the club and several clubs are thinking of signing him at the moment.
Chelsea are trying to bolster their attack department in the winter as they can’t rely on Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata given their current form. They are close to signing Gonzalo Higuain on loan from AC Milan. However, the addition of Eriksen will certainly be an asset to Chelsea.
Given the importance of Eriksen and the fact that they will be without Harry Kane for a while, Spurs will try their best to keep the Dane at the club.
Tottenham Hotspur are currently third in the Premier League table but they have won only one of their last three matches. Spurs will be hoping to garner three points on Sunday when they take on Fulham at Craven Cottage.
