Tottenham Hotspur midfield maestro Christian Eriksen has revealed to the Danish press that he is ready for a step-up and a bigger challenge, as he looks to transfer away from North London this summer (Ekstra Bladet).

Eriksen has just one year left on his current Tottenham contract, meaning the club may be forced to sell up, rather than losing him on a free next summer. Real Madrid are reportedly interested in bringing the Great Dane to Spain (Mirror).

But, how could Liverpool play a part in Eriksen’s sale to Real Madrid?

Let’s rewind to 6 January 2018, as the Guardian reported that Liverpool’s best midfielder and chief playmaker Philippe Coutinho was to join Barcelona in a £142m deal.

While it seemed like a disaster for the Reds, they simply reinvested the money in two much-needed areas, a new goalkeeper and a star centre back.

They snapped up Vigil Van Dijk from Southampton for £75m in January 2018 (BBC), and Alisson Becker for £67m from Roma (BBC).

This is a great example of why it should not be all doom and gloom for Spurs, and may just convince them to take the risk, sell Eriksen, and reinvest.

Spurs are said to want a similar fee to the Coutinho deal, with a £130m price tag slapped on Eriksen (Mirror).

Should Spurs sell up and reinvest?

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Yes, yes yes. No point keeping a player that does not want to play for the badge. Re invest in Lo Celso, apparently he’s desperate to joint the Spurs. Get rid.
