Christian Eriksen’s long-drawn-out transfer saga finally appears to be coming to an end, and Tottenham fans are reacting in a variety of ways to the big news.
Italian outlet Gazzetta Dello Sport report that the Dane has accepted a deal at Inter Milan which would see him sign a three-and-a-half-year contract with the club currently sat second in Serie A.
However, Spurs are keen to cash in on the playmaker this month, demanding €20m (£17.1m) from Inter to make the switch now, otherwise, it is likely the 27-year-old will head for pastures new in the summer.

Some fans are saddened by the news of his possible departure. After all, he has been a terrific servant for the most part of his six-and-a-half years at the club, taking part in a Tottenham side which twice finished second in the Premier League and reached the Champions League final in 2019.

If true, sad way for his time to end at the club. Never fun to see a good player leave like this and he was wrong to let his game slip over the last 18 mos. Still – he will always be one of my favorites from this generation…

However, with Spurs struggling in eighth place it is time for sentiment to be put to one side. With three goals and three assists, Eriksen has been far from his best this season.
As a result, the fans who are pleased to finally see him leave are taking the right approach. Hopefully for Tottenham’s sake this chapter will finally be closed and Jose Mourinho can concentrate on improving the likes of Dele Alli and Giovani Lo Celso.

It’s sad that my response to reading this was relief. He and the club needed to part ways in the Summer, but the way he downed tools and has conducted himself this season has left a bitter taste in the mouth #Eriksen #thfc https://t.co/P4ggaMLvsz

There are also fans who see the midfielder’s departure as an opportunity to make some January signings, and if the North Londoners do bring in some money for Eriksen then their hopes should become a reality.
So spend now knowing it’s happening, not wait until last 5 mins

Meanwhile, Spurs fans have also given a very interesting reaction to another player who has been a long-term servant at the club.
