Paris Saint-Germain are lining up a £100m bid to try and sign Christian Eriksen from Tottenham Hotspur this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that the Lilywhites are braced for a big-money bid from the French champions ahead of the close of the European transfer window at the end of the month.

The 26-year-old playmaker has still not agreed a new contract with the north London side, despite talks between the two parties believed to still be ongoing.

It is claimed in the same story that Tottenham are “desperate” to tie Eriksen down to a new contract but there has not yet been a breakthrough in talks.

Now, it is being claimed that PSG are prepared to make a huge bid for Eriksen before the close of the European transfer window on 31 August.

Tottenham did not sign any new players in the summer transfer window and the Lilywhites are unlikely to be keen to let one of their star talents leave White Hart Lane in the coming days.

Eriksen is widely considered to be one of the Premier League’s top playmakers, and he scored 14 goals and made 10 assists last term for the north London side.
