The January transfer window is open in Europe. We’ll keep you updated with the latest news and speculation from silly season’s winter cousin.

Eriksen lands in Milan ahead of Inter medical

One of the month’s longest-rumored transfer sagas appears to be nearing a close.

Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen landed in Milan on Monday ahead of a medical with Inter, where Sky Sports reports he’s expected to complete a $22 million move this week.

Eriksen has 69 goals and 89 assists in his six and a half years with Spurs, but it’s been reported he’s seeking an exit for some time now.

Spurs manager Jose Mourinho has only brought Eriksen on as a substitute the last two Premier League games amid the transfer speculation.

Inter has been very active this month, with Antonio Conte signing Ashley Young from Manchester United and Victor Moses on loan from Chelsea.

The playmaking Eriksen figures to be an asset in Inter’s pursuit of its first Serie A title since completing a historic treble in 2010. Inter caught a break on Sunday when Juventus lost for just the second time all season, closing the gap atop the table between the two to three points.
