  • Inter Milan are plotting a double Premier League swoop before the deadline
  • Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen and Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud could move to Milan
  • Inter director Piero Ausilio has faith in the club to bring in both players 

Inter Milan are ‘confident’ in securing the signings of Premier League duo Christian Eriksen and Olivier Giroud.

The Serie A club have pursued Tottenham midfielder Eriksen throughout this window, and the Dane himself is thought to be keen on a move to Italy.

Meanwhile, Antonio Conte is also looking to bring in out-of-favour Chelsea forward Giroud, who has made just seven appearances in all competitions under Frank Lampard.

Asked about negotiations for both players, Inter director Piero Ausilio said: ‘No important news, we have confidence in our work and not only for these two players.’

Sky Sports reported that Inter have offered £8.5million for Eriksen, though Spurs are looking more in the region of £15m for a player whose contract expires in the summer.

Giroud is also thought to be keen to move to Milan, in the hope of regular first-team football after a frustrating six months under Lampard at Stamford Bridge.
