Two European giants may be weighing up offers for Tottenham Hotspur star midfielder, Christian Eriksen.
The Express report that Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid may both be preparing bids in an excess of £100m for the great Dane, before the window shuts on August 31.
As the window is shut for English clubs to bring new players in, Tottenham would be unable to replace their pivotal playmaker until January.
Contract talks between Spurs and Eriksen have been ongoing throughout the summer, but no new deal has been reached with the 26-year-old as of yet.
Eriksen has two years left on his current deal but is yet to follow Harry Kane and Dele Alli in putting pen to paper on a new contract.
The midfield maestro notched up 14 goals and 10 assists last season and was a major part in Tottenham’s push for the top three, and another year in the Champions League.
Eriksen joined Spurs in 2013 from Ajax, for a fee of just £11m, so any sale would mark a huge profit for the North London club, but fans and manager alike would be gutted to see him sold.
In his five seasons at the club, Eriksen has made over 170 appearances, scoring over 40 goals, and is now one of the most experienced players in the squad.
However, every reason for Tottenham to want to keep him around is a reason for other giants to want to purchase his services. Real Madrid are currently looking for a long-term replacement for Luka Modric, who looks set to leave for Inter Milan.
PSG’s new manager Thomas Tuchel is also looking to make his mark on his new team, and a landmark signing like Christian Eriksen would do just the trick.
But with Tottenham being the only Premier League club not to sign a player in the summer transfer window, would it be at all feasible to let such a star leave the club now, or at all?
