Video: Tottenham star lands in Italy for Inter Milan medical

Tottenham star Christian Eriksen has arrived in Italy for his medical with Inter Milan on Monday, ahead of a £17.5million move.

The Tottenham midfielder, who is out of contract at the end of the season, flew in from London this morning to undergo his medical examination at the Humanitas clinic in Milan.

Inter have been chasing the Danish international for numerous weeks and the deal is now near completion, with personal terms long since agreed.

Eriksen will sign a contract until June 2024, believed to be worth around £6.5m per season plus bonuses.

Inter had hoped to negotiate the fee down from Tottenham’s original asking price of £17.5m (€20m) but their willingness to do the deal before Friday’s deadline means they have agreed to pay Spurs the full amount, including various bonuses.

Eriksen’s departure seemed confirmed when he travelled but was not in the matchday squad for Spurs’ 1-1 draw at Southampton in the FA Cup on Saturday.

The 28-year-old will be the third Inter signing this month from a Premier League club, as Antonio Conte looks to strengthen his squad.
