Cape Town - Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen has emerged as a transfer target for Juventus, with the midfielder seemingly no closer to penning a new deal in London.
The Denmark international will be available on a free transfer at the end of the season as he is due to fall out of contract, while he could potentially agree a Bosman deal with an interested club in January.
It remains to be seen if matters will change now that former Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho is in charge, but if the evidence of the weekend is anything to go by, then possibly not.
Eriksen was left out of the side for Mourinho’s first game in charge, a 3-2 win over West Ham United, and may not figure in the plans of the Portuguese in the coming months.
Everything will become clear over the next few weeks as Mourinho settles into the job, but everything points to Eriksen moving on, and Juve look set to be in the hunt.
The Bianconeri have made a habit of snapping up players on free transfers, with Aaron Ramsey, Emre Can and Adrien Rabiot all arriving in recent seasons.
It is fair to say that the latter two have not really worked out, but that is not stopping the Old Lady from looking for other bargains, and Eriksen is one of them.
The player is free to talk to other clubs in the January transfer window with a view to agreeing a deal for the summer, and Juve look sure to open talks.
