Barcelona have made an enquiry about signing Christian Eriksen from Tottenham in the January transfer window.

Eriksen met with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy on Tuesday and reiterated that he wants to join Inter Milan this month, according to Sky in Italy.

Inter are still pushing hard to get him but it now appears as though Barcelona have entered the frame for his signature.

However, while there is still no agreement between Tottenham and Inter on the final fee for Eriksen, personal terms are understood to have been agreed and the deal is close to being completed, according to Sky in Italy.

Eriksen's contract expires at the end of the season and he has been free to negotiate a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs since January 1.

Inter made a renewed £11m plus bonuses offer for the Denmark international on Monday, but Spurs are holding out for their £17m valuation.

However, Inter Milan's chief-executive Giuseppe Marotta is optimistic the two clubs can agree a deal for Eriksen this month. He told Sky in Italy: "Eriksen is a fantastic player. We're waiting and we're still confident in this deal."

Inter have already completed the signings of Victor Moses and Ashley Young this month.
