On Thursday, Calciomercato explained Inter Milan are not ready to accept Tottenham boss Daniel Levy’s demands (loan + Inter pay part of the wages) to take Christian Eriksen this month.

It was also stated the 28-year-old still has a market in the Premier League and the Serie A side are hopeful an English club would come forward to take him in the winter market.

Another report from Calciomercato now explains the injury to Dennis Praet has seen Leicester City increasingly emerge in the race for Eriksen.

Brendan Rodgers will be without the services of Praet for the next three months after the Belgian picked up an injury in the FA Cup win over Stoke City.

The Foxes are aware the Denmark international ‘has been on the market for several months’, which is why they explored the option to take him on a loan deal.

It’s claimed ‘Inter’s reply was clear; no type of discount’. They want potential suitors to pay Eriksen’s full wages during his loan stay, which would be approximately around €4m until June.

Antonio Conte’s side don’t intend to ‘back down an inch’ from this demand to let the Dane leave in January.

It remains to be seen whether they will change this stance if no club comes forward for him as we approach deadline day.
