Atletico Madrid are ready to make a late move for Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen.

Knowing Real Madrid have gone cold on the Dane, Atletico are stepping in, says Sportitalia.

Atletico see Eriksen as a replacement for Antoine Griezmann after his €120m move to Barcelona.

And with Diego Costa also set to be sold, Atletico will have the funds available to bid for Eriksen – despite the €120m spent on Joao Felix.

For his part, Eriksen may take some persuading as he’s insisted to confidants he’d only leave Spurs for Real Madrid.
