Mauricio Pochettino is desperate for Eriksen, who moved to White Hart Lane five years ago, to commit his long-term future to the North London side.
The Dane was the only Spurs player to hit double figures in both league goals and assists last campaign and his departure would be a huge blow to Pochettino.
Danny Rose could also be lured to the French champions, but he is not their No1 priority.
Atletico Madrid’s Filipe Luis is Tuchel’s preferred choice, but if that falls through then a one-year loan deal for frozen-out Rose could be on.
Spurs will look to maintain their perfect start to the season with a win at Old Trafford and pile yet more pressure on United boss Jose Mourinho.
