Tottenham in Inter Milan talks to sell Christian Eriksen

Tottenham are in talks to sell Christian Eriksen to Inter Milan.

Sky Sports says personal terms are not expected to be a problem for the 27-year-old but the two clubs are currently apart in their valuation of the player.

Inter Milan have offered £8.5m for Eriksen but Tottenham value the Denmark international at double that fee.

Eriksen played 90 minutes in the 2-1 victory over Middlesbrough on Tuesday but his name was jeered by fans before the match.

Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho praised the midfielder for his professionalism and believes he can hold his head high if he does leave the club in January.

"He played very well, very professional which is what I expect from him," said Mourinho.

"If his decision is to leave, I think he has to leave with his head up, if he gives everything which is what he tries to do for the team."
