Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen is a target for Italian side Inter Milan

Inter Milan are confident regarding transfer negotiations for Christian Eriksen and Olivier Giroud after returning from his trip to London for talks.

Tottenham midfielder Eriksen is out of contract in the summer and is keen to move to the Italian club, while Chelsea striker Giroud’s agent has already started talks with officials from the Serie A side.

Asked about the status of Inter’s negotiations for the Premier League duo, director Piero Ausilio said: “No important news, we have confidence in our work and not only for these two players.”

Inter Milan have offered £8.5m for Eriksen but Tottenham value the Denmark international at double that fee.

Personal terms are not expected to be a problem for the 27-year-old Tottenham midfielder but the two clubs are currently apart in their valuation of the player.

Sky in Italy reported last Friday Giroud, whose Blues deal expires in the summer, had agreed a two-and-a-half-year contract.

There is less than £1m (€1.17m) between Chelsea’s request and Inter’s offer. The Blues have asked for £4.3m plus £850,000 (€5m + €1m), while Inter have offered £3.4m plus £850,000 (€4m + €1m).
