Atletico Madrid join Christian Eriksen transfer hunt with Spurs star identified as potential Antoine Griezmann replacement – The Sun

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR could be braced for fresh bids for Christian Eriksen after Atletico Madrid entered the race to sign the playmaker.

With the Dane's contract running out at the end of the season, a number of clubs have been linked with a swoop.

Diego Simeone's Atletico are the latest to show interest, according to Evening Standard.

That is after they agreed a £22.5million fee to sign another Spurs first-teamer, Kieran Trippier.

Tottenham are reportedly well informed of potential offers coming in for Eriksen but are yet to secure a new deal for the player.

After signing Tanguy Ndombele for a club record fee, Spurs are focused on strengthening their defence with possible raids for Dani Alves and William Saliba.

Atleti, meanwhile, sold Antoine Griezmann to Barcelona earlier in the month for £108m.

Despite signing Joao Felix from Benfica, the Madrid club are expected to experience more turnover in their attacking line.

Reports in Spain state that Nikola Kalinic and Angel Correa are on the wanted list.

And the attacking midfield spot is evidently one Atleti are keen to reinforce.

Alongside Eriksen, Real Madrid playmaker James Rodriguez is said to be a key target.

Club president Enrique Cerezo was forced to deny rumours he will bid for the Colombian on Tuesday.

He told reporters: "Atletico are interested in great players and James is a great player, but from that to he's going to sign, there is some distance."
