Published Add your comment

Serie A champions Juventus have been dealt another midfield setback after Tottenham Hotspur confirmed they have no interest in selling Christian Eriksen, reports Sky Sports.

The Old Lady are still in the market for a new midfielder after losing both Andrea Pirlo and Arturo Vidal, but as of yet they have failed to land a single one of their targets.

Pirlo has moved on and joined MLS side New York City, whilst Vidal agreed to join Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, leaving Juve light in the midfield department.

Manager Massimiliano Allegri has been very open about his club's search for a new attacking-midfielder, but as of yet he has failed in all of his pursuits.

Allegri initially wanted to sign one of David Silva, Mesut Ozil or Juan Cuadrado, but was rejected by Manchester City and Arsenal, who stated their desires to keep both Silva and Ozil.

As for Cuadrado, he could still be set to leave Stamford Bridge after failing to break into the first-team under Jose Mourinho, but Juve's interest in the Colombian has seemingly cooled in recent weeks.

After receiving snubs from the Premier League sides, Allegri then turned to Schalke and enquired about Julian Draxler.

The German side told Juve that they would listen to offers for the midfielder, but the Italian side saw their initial bid worth around £17million rejected.

Another setback for Allegri and Juve meant another change in target and according to reports in Denmark, their next player in mind was Spurs' Eriksen.

However, Spurs have told reporters that the 23-year-old is not for sale at any price and they will not even consider any offers that are made.

The Dane has been at White Hart Lane for two years now since leaving Ajax and has gone on to make 64 Premier League appearances during that time.

Mauricio Pochettino sees the Danish international as a major part of his first-team, especially after the partnership he developed with Harry Kane last season in north London.

As for Juve, it's another setback in their quest for a midfielder, and according to reports, they may renew their interest in Draxler, or they may make a formal move for Chelsea's Ramires.
