Inter Milan is set to improve its bid for Man United's Romelu Lukaku while Atletico Madrid has Christian Eriksen on its wishlist. Read all the latest news and transfer rumors from Europe and beyond.
The Summer transfer window is officially underway as major clubs continue to strengthen their respective rosters. From Romelu Lukaku to Christian Eriksen, Gareth Bale and Matthijs de Ligt, here are the latest news and rumors from Europe and beyond.
Inter Milan wants Romelu Lukaku as the Italian side looks to make an offer for $75 million plus bonuses, per Sky Sports. Earlier this year, Inter wanted the Belgian striker as part of a two-year loan spell but United reportedly says that it would only sell Lukaku for the same price ($97 million) it payed Everton back in 2017.
Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone, meanwhile, is looking for a creative midfielder and Christian Eriksen is on his wishlist, according to reports from the Evening Standard. Eriksen has one year remaining on his current contract and has already talked about his desire to find a new challenge. If Spurs can't persuade the Dane to stay or sell him for a reasonabl price, it would play the risk of letting him go for free at the end of next season.

According to Marca, Spurs can afford his transfer fee but only half of his net salary, while Jonathan Barnett, who represents Bale, told TalkSport: "I don't comment on rubbish."
