Despite publicly acknowledging that he is ready to “try something new” last month, Tottenham Hotspur has yet to receive a bid for Christian Eriksen.

The Guardian’s David Hynter reports that the club has received no official offers for the midfielder, and as a result, he is expected to join Spurs for preseason training this week. Over the last several months, the player has been most seriously linked to Real Madrid and Juventus, with other clubs like Manchester United possibly interested.

Madrid has seemingly been the most likely destination for Eriksen should he leave, but Hynter also reports that the Spanish side’s pursuit of United’s Paul Pogba complicates matters. Like Eriksen, he has publicly expressed interest in a “new challenge” and is also a target of both Juventus and Madrid; he, though, is reportedly a bigger priority to both clubs than Eriksen is.

Additionally, Hynter reports that Spurs are open to re-signing Fernando Llorente after his two-year contract expired in June. A new deal would have Llorente on lower wages, and would likely happen should the forward not find a suitor in Spain, per the report.
