While Serie A isn’t what it used to be, the older punters in the Transfer Tavern still get a nervous twitch when reading of links between their star players and titans of that league.
So, imagine the discontent amongst the Spurs supporting locals when CalcioMercato claimed Roma have enquired about the possibility of bringing playmaker Christian Eriksen to the Italian capital this summer.
The Danish midfielder has emerged as one of the most creative in the Premier League and one of the few good things to come out of the heavy outlay in North London following Gareth Bale’s sale to Real Madrid in 2013.
While the 23-year old is understood to be locked in contract talks with movers, shakers and decision makers at White Hart Lane, Giallorossi coach Luciano Spalletti is said to be eager to bring him to the Stadio Olimpico over the coming months.
Juventus are also thought to retain an interest in the former Ajax man, who won the club’s Player of the Year in his first season at the Lane.
