Inter Milan secured the signing of Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen for a bargain deal on Tuesday. Tottenham Hotspur moved quickly to tie down Giovanni Lo Celso on a permanent deal. They also announced the big-money signing of Steve Bergwijn on Wednesday. Christian Eriksen's departure meant that attacker Erik Lamela is the only forward left from the famed 'Magnificent Seven' who joined in the summer of 2013 under Andre Villas-Boas era post the departure of Gareth Bale.

Christian Eriksen arrived amidst much fanfare from Ajax back in 2013. He was purchased from the money generated due to the Gareth Bale transfer. The Dane went on to register 69 goals and 89 assists in 305 appearances and saw the likes of Real Madrid, Juventus and Barcelona covet his signature. He also led Tottenham to the UEFA Champions League final last season.
Christian Eriksen was one of the 'Magnificent Seven' who joined Spurs to replace Gareth Bale. The other six were - Paulinho (now playing in the CSL), Nacer Chadli (at Anderlecht FC), Vlad Chiriches (on loan from Napoli at Sassuolo), Roberto Soldado (playing in LaLiga for Granada), Etienne Capoue (playing for Watford in the Premier League) and Erik Lamela who is still with Tottenham. The Argentinian has 16 goals from 143 appearances in what has been an injury-laden spell in North London.
