Tottenham want former Bees star and set asking price for Eriksen

Tottenham reportedly want Sheffield United defender Jack O’Connell.

The 25-year-old former Brentford centre-back has impressed for the Blades in the Premier League and the Daily Star say Spurs are planning to make an offer for him.

The newspaper say Spurs see O’Connell as a potential long-term replacement for Jan Vertonghen.

A big-money move would see him become the latest in a long line of players to have attracted sizeable transfer fees after leaving Brentford.

He left Griffin Park in 2016 and was a key player in helping Sheffield United win promotion to the top flight – alongside fellow former Bees defender John Egan.

Meanwhile, there continues to be speculation over the future of Christian Eriksen, who is wanted by Inter Milan.

Eriksen’s Tottenham contract expires this summer and he has long been expected to move during this month’s transfer window.

Several clubs, including Real Madrid and Manchester United, have been linked with him, but he looks likely to move to Italy.

The Guardian say Inter will offer £12.8m plus add-ons in an attempt to secure a deal to take him to the San Siro.

But the Daily Mail say Tottenham will not let the Denmark international leave unless Inter pay £17m.
