According to the prominent British news outlet, Independent, Real Madrid have decided to step up their interest in Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Christian Eriksen.
The same source also states that Los Merengues have already made some ‘initial steps’ to wrap up the deal.
Los Blancos are not going through the best of times in La Liga as they currently trail arch-rivals Barcelona by ten points.
Real’s poor results are closely related to their unconvincing displays in the final third, with Isco Alarcon and Luka Modric both underperforming this campaign.
The former Malaga man is edging closer to the exit door, and Florentino Perez has to find a player capable of making links between the midfield and attack.
The reigning European holders hope to bring one of the best Premier League playmakers to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu this winter.
Eriksen’s contract with the Spurs runs out in 2020, and the 26-year-old is yet to commit his future to the club.
Although Daniel Levy seems to have no interest in selling his talisman for less than £250m, Eriksen’s contract issues work against the Tottenham chairman.
