While the specifics of how the deal will be structured are yet to be agreed, it looks likely that PSG will have a significant sum they could choose to spend on a replacement.

French newspaper Le Parisien claim that one of the players being targeted by the Ligue 1 club is Tottenham star Eriksen.

Although he would not be a like for like replacement for Neymar, he could match some of the creativity lost if he does end up back in Spain.

The newspaper also claim he would be available for between £45million and £63million.

This figure is significantly lower than the transfer fee that Daniel Levy is thought to want for the player, despite him entering the final 12 months of his contract.

Eriksen admitted earlier this year that he wants to leave north London for a new challenge, with Manchester United and Real Madrid thought to be interested.

The move to the Red Devils never materialised and it looks unlikely that Madrid will make a last ditch swoop before their window closes on September 2.

A move to the French capital could be the Denmark international’s only option of leaving Spurs this summer.
