Tottenham’s want-away star Christian Eriksen has reportedly agreed a deal to join Inter Milan this month.

Eriksen is keen to join the Serie A giants and personal terms are not expected to be a problem, but the two clubs are some way apart in their valuation of the player, according to Sky Sports in Italy.
The broadcaster reports that Inter have offered £8.5million, but Tottenham want double that fee for the 27-year-old.
But Jose Mourinho called for supporters to respect his decision.
“He played very well, very professional which is what I expect from him,” said the Tottenham boss.
“If his decision is to leave, I think he has to leave with his head up, if he gives everything which is what he tries to do for the team. Fans have always to respect.”
Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano says Eriksen has agreed to join Inter and wants to move “immediately”.
He tweeted: “Christian Eriksen has just accepted to join Inter on January – he’d like to move immediately and is “ready to agree” personal terms.”
Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain are ready to rival Inter for Eriksen’s signature.
PSG have been monitoring the developing talks between Spurs and Inter and are set to make their own move.
With just six months left on his contract, the French league leaders are able to approach Eriksen and his camp directly to sound them out.
Eriksen has rejected several contract offers from Tottenham because he wants to experience another culture and football outside England.
Giovani Lo Celso and Erik Lamela were on target for Tottenham on Tuesday before a late goal from George Saville gave Middlesbrough hope.
But Spurs held out and face a trip to in-form Southampton in the fourth round on January 25.
