Christian Eriksen’s contract with Tottenham Hotspur runs out at the end of the current season and the midfielder looks no closer to signing a new deal with the club.

The January transfer window represents Tottenham’s last hope of recouping a transfer fee for the playmaker, who can walk away from North London as a free agent in the summer.

Bayern Munich are among the clubs that the 27-year-old has been linked with (Sport 1) but former Germany captain Lothar Matthaus has insisted that Eriksen isn’t good enough for the Bundesliga giants.

The 58-year-old claimed that he wasn’t impressed with the Spurs midfielder’s performances this calendar year and that he would merely be warming the bench at the Bavarian capital.

Speaking to Sport 1, Matthaus said: “I have been following the player for a long time, and he has disappointed me so far in 2019.

“A transfer to FC Bayern would not make any sense for me and would be very surprising. For me, he is not a player who helps Bayern.

“If he is not enough for Tottenham, he is not good enough for Bayern. Uli Hoeneß has also said that Bayern do not need substitutes.”

Marca reported a few days ago that Real Madrid are keen to sign Eriksen in the January transfer window while COPE claim that the Los Blancos are prepared to wait till the summer to sign him for free.

Spurs Web Opinion

Eriksen has been in shocking form for most of the year and this explains why most big sides are hesitant to go for him. Even back in the summer, no side was seemingly prepared to pay the asking price for Eriksen and unless the midfielder puts in much-improved performances for Spurs, it is hard to see that changing in January.
