Speaking to Sky Sports, transfer insider Kaveh Solhekol has revealed that the representatives of Tottenham target Christian Eriksen have filed a request for arbitration vs Inter Milan due to allegedly not being paid their substantial commissions when the Dane moved to the San Siro last year.
As revealed by Solhekol, saying ‘I’ve just been told‘, the value of this supposedly unpaid commission comes up to around £6 million, with Eriksen’s agents now taking Inter to the Italian courts for not receiving this bonus when he completed a switch to Serie A in January 2020.

Solhekol reveals potential Spurs blow in Eriksen race
Solhekol, speaking on Sky Sports news, details the fact that this dispute between the playmaker’s representatives and the Nerazzurri could ‘complicate any potential move‘ for Eriksen – coming as Spurs eye a potential return according to numerous sources.
ESPN reporter Matteo Bonetti then threw fuel onto the fire, revealing that Jose Mourinho ‘wants him back in the Premier League’ and he ‘could replace Dele Alli’ at Spurs (Football Daily).
These claims were then heavily backed up by the Athletic, who shared news that Eriksen’s return to north London is a fairly realistic ‘possibility‘ this month.
Now, in a fresh development, Solhekol has claimed this legal dispute could complicate any potential move for the 28-year-old as the player’s agents take Inter to court over an allegedly unpaid £6 million commission.
