Tottenham in talks with Ajax over Eriksen transfer - Overmars

The north London outfit are expected to confirm the signing of Erik Lamela after Roma confirmed the transfer on Wednesday, and are looking to add further creative options
Ajax technical director Marc Overmars has revealed that Tottenham have opened talks with the Eredivisie club over the signing of Christian Eriksen.

The Danish international's contract expires next summer and he is believed to be available for approximately €15 million, leaving Overmars to confirm that the north Londoners are speaking to the midfielder.

Speaking to Telegraaf TV, Overmars said: "[Tottenham chairman Daniel] Levy was here today to discuss the transfer. There is no agreement yet until it’s signed.

"Eriksen is going to talk with Tottenham now.

"Obviously, if it happens, we won’t be happy at all to lose Eriksen. Especially since we, the trainers and staff, feel that he was improving and was becoming more influential in games this season.

"We would’ve liked to see him stay at Ajax for another season."

Overmars also agreed that the upcoming expiry of the Dane's contract was a consideration, adding: "The length of the contract is very important and previously made agreements also play a role."
