Tottenham have no intention of selling their Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen, despite reported transfer interest from Italian giants Juventus.

Newspaper reports had suggested that Spurs were about to sanction a £35m deal to off-load their playmaker-in-chief, yet the north London club will reject any advances for the 23-year-old who still has almost three years left on his contract.

While Tottenham are keen to add players to their squad in the final couple of weeks of the transfer window and will consider offers for out-of-favour player such as Emmanuel Adebayor and Aaron Lennon, a deal for the sale of Eriksen will not be considered.

Rumours that Spurs might consider selling Eriksen were fuelled by comments from his agent Martin Schoots, who was reported to have opened the door to a possible transfer.

"I never speak about specific clubs, but we know that very bid clubs were after Christian since he was 14 years old," Schoots was reported to have said.

"Christian is now happy to be at Spurs but you never know what happens tomorrow."

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is keen to build his team around Eriksen's creative skills, with his set-piece expertise vital to the Tottenham game plan.
