Christian Eriksen’s drawn-out contract negotiations with Tottenham could be resolved this week with the Daily Mail reporting that he is close to agreeing a deal.

The 24-year-old currently earns £32,000-a-week at White Hart Lane and I’m sure you’ve all heard the rumours that he was holding out for £150,000-a-week which would have smashed our wage structure. Something which Eriksen and his agent recently hinted at not being true.

Instead the new five-year deal is said to be around £80,000-a-week which would put the Denmark international into the bracket of the top earners at the club.

Eriksen’s lack of form this season has been a talking point for many Spurs fans, so the sooner he can get the contract signed the better.

Mauricio Pochetten even recently acknowledged the fact that his playmaker is going through a difficult time.

‘Maybe it is a difficult period for him,’

‘This is a player with real commitment to the club and sometimes maybe your performance is not the performance you expect.

‘But we are very happy with him, he is a great player and very important for us.’

I wonder if Levy is keeping news of the deal back until deadline day to try and appease the fans? What do you think?

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. We need to bring somebody in to compete with Eriksen because he's taking his place for granted and becoming lazy. He needs a kick up the arse because it worked wonders for Walker and Rose.

  2. Of course he will be eager to sign a new deal and quickly I imagine !.. His value is plummeting by the week and to be honest I would tell him that we will look at his performances at the end of the season. He is under contract for two more years and if he thinks he can force a move by refusing to suit up PERFECT!!. Problem is many will be happy to offer him better wages but wont offer up what we want on a transfer fee. The time for him to renegotiate his contract was after his first year when he looked like a decent player. We need a truly creative player that all of the good clubs have not a pretend imitation like Christian. I wouldn't care that he doesn't tackle back or compete for any 50-50 challenges if his talent was that great. It IS NOT. If we had Coutinho who cost 7 million more we seriously would have ,and still could challenge at the top. We have a good group he is the big problem. You cant teach someone to compete they will never change. Christian will be playing probably back in Denmark or some other league within three years and will be forgotten. We need to move on we will not progress with this actor.
