When the summer transfer window was closed, most of the rumours have been put to bed for at least a few months, with very few exceptions.

One of the particular cases is Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen, who continues to be a constant topic in the Spanish and Italian media.

AS writes about Atletico Madrid’s plans today, and once again, says the Spurs star is a target for the January window.

The player is said to be a ‘gift’ from the board to manager Diego Simeone, who wants to fight for a Champions League title, which has become an ‘obsession’ for him.

Eriksen is named alongside Rodrigo and Dani Olmo, so he’s not the only one who Atleti have as a target for the summer.

What AS makes it clear is that the club are working to stay at the top level, and the arrival of Eriksen would be a clear message of their plans, giving them a boost to fight for titles this season.
