Inter Milan director confirms Christian Eriksen bid and agreement for Chelsea's Victor Moses

Christian Eriksen has been linked with Inter Milan for some time and the Italian club have now confirmed they have put in an offer for the Danish midfielder.

Inter director confirms Eriksen bid and agreement for Moses

Inter Milan have submitted a formal offer for Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen, according to the Serie A outfit's director of sport, Piero Ausilio.

Eriksen is now in the final six months of his contract at Spurs and been the subject of frequent transfer speculation, with Inter long seen as one of the favourites to land him.

Inter Milan have displayed an open policy with regards to their transfer targets - so much so that club CEO Giuseppe Marotta was spotted with Eriksen's agent, while Piero Ausilio previously suggested he was confident of getting a deal done.

Eriksen is free to negotiate with other clubs

Such brazen tactics have not done down well with Spurs manager José Mourinho, who accused his former club of showing a lack of respect – though Inter insisted they have done nothing wrong, reminding the Londoners that they are fully entitled to open discussions with the midfielder. They seem to have taken the next step in their pursuit, with Ausilio confirming a bid has been lodged.

Speaking to Sky Sport Italia, Ausilio said: "We just made an official bid to Tottenham to sign Christian Eriksen and now we're waiting. Many clubs are interested but we are confident, trying to get a top player like Eriksen."

Inter to take Victor Moses... and maybe Giroud

Ausilio also revealed the club have reached an agreement with Chelsea for Victor Moses after Frank Lampard confirmed the Nigerian's loan with Fenerbahçe had been ended with the view to him going elsewhere. And Olivier Giroud – also owned by Chelsea – could yet potentially link up with Moses at San Siro. "We've reached an agreement with Chelsea for Victor Moses," he added. "Giroud is a possibility if we sell one striker in this transfer market."
