PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN are reportedly ready to rival Inter Milan in the transfer pursuit of Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen.
The wantaway Dane has been heavily linked with a move to the Serie A giants with some reports claiming they have tabled an offer of £8.5m last night.
Spurs are believed to have rejected that bid for the 27-year-old, who becomes a free agent in June, and want double that fee.
However, the Daily Mirror claim they will face huge competition from PSG for the playmaker.
Their report states the French champions view the fee wanted by Spurs as a “bargain”.
And now they are monitoring the talks between the Premier League outfit and Inter while they plot their own move.
Supporters booed him off during Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Liverpool and he was jeered again last night when the line ups were announced prior to the FA Cup victory over Middlesbrough.

Afterwards Spurs boss Jose Mourinho urged supporters to remember what Eriksen has achieved at the club instead of giving him stick.
Mourinho said: “Christian played very well.
“Very professional. What I expect from him.
“If his decision is to leave, he has to leave with his head up. Fans have always to respect.”
