LONDON (AFP) – Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho said Inter Milan have yet to make a bid for Christian Eriksen.
Reports suggested the Denmark international, who is in the last six months of his contract, was close to a move to the Serie A side, with his agent in Milan to broker a deal during the current transfer window.
Mourinho, though, said Spurs have not even received an official offer.
“You have to ask the agent and Inter Milan because they know more than me,” Mourinho said.
“If they are confident, they are confident because they are ready to make us an offer, which didn’t happen yet.
“So when I see people speaking, especially people with responsibilities speaking about it, I am a little bit surprised.
A striker is on the top of his wish list following the potential season-ending injury to Harry Kane.
“Lots of names are coming and the majority of them are coming by players’ entourages, agents, people that want to put players’ names in the market,” he said. “Do we need a striker? Yes, if possible yes.
“But it has to be a positive situation for us, so in this moment we have these attacking players that of course are very good: Son (Heung-min), Lucas (Moura), (Erik) Lamela, (Giovani) Lo Celso, Dele Alli. Of course they’re very good but we miss that target man.”
