There continues to be speculation over the future of Tottenham star Christian Eriksen.

Real Madrid have been linked with the Danish midfielder, as have Paris St-Germain and Inter Milan.

His Spurs contract expires next summer and he has so far not signed a new deal, leading to reports that he could leave north London.

The Daily Mirror have picked up on more reports in the Spanish press that Real are set to make a move for Eriksen.

It is claimed that they could target him rather than Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, who has also been linked with Real.

Reports claim that Real boss Zinedine Zidane is an admirer of Pogba but there are doubts over whether he would fit in.

Meanwhile, the Daily Express say Arsenal could make a move for United’s Ander Hererra at the end of the season when his contract expires.

It comes after French publication L’Equipe reported that the Gunners and Paris St-Germain are looking to snap up Herrera.

And Arsenal and Chelsea are among clubs interested in Ajax winger David Neres, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The newspaper say Arsenal and Everton have held talks over a potential deal for the Brazilian and that he is also being monitored by Chelsea and Manchester United.

He would apparently cost €40m (£34.5m) this summer. Borussia Dortmund reportedly had a bid for him rejected in January.
