Danny Mills claims Daniel Levy has a major dilemma on his hands

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Chrisitan Eriksen has been linked with a move away from the club for the vast majority of the summer (Marca).

However, despite Spurs bringing in two central midfielders in Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso, they have not sold the Dane so far.

With more than two weeks left until the close of the European transfer market, it is unclear if the playmaker international will stay at Spurs.

The 27-year-old, who is now down to the final year of his contract with the club, came off the bench in the second half during Tottenham’s opening game of the season against Aston Villa and helped the Lilywhites turn the game around.

Former Leeds United Danny Mills has now insisted that Daniel Levy has a major dilemma on his hands as he might lose Eriksen for free if he does not let the midfielder leave for £45-50 million in the next few weeks.

Speaking to Football Insider, Mills said: “At the moment he’s (Eriksen) worth £45-50 million? In two weeks time he’s worth nothing and that’s what it comes down to, how much do you want that £45-50 million in?

“Overnight he goes from an asset to no asset. Daniel Levy is very ,very shrewd, we know that, but it’s a decision that Tottenham are going to have to make quite soon.”

Since Eriksen doesn’t seem to be at the top of Real Madrid’s wishlist this summer, the best situation for all parties would be for the Dane to sign an extension with a release clause that would allow him to depart if Madrid come calling next summer.

  1. Why waste time regurgitating quotes from a self-opinionated dimwit like Danny Mills. Do you really think that Daniel Levy, with a first class honours degree in Land Economy from Cambridge, needs a lesson in finance and asset management from an ex-footballer? Neither do I.
