Journalist Dean Jones has revealed that Christian Eriksen wants a few weeks to weigh up his future amidst Tottenham’s interest in re-signing him.
According to Danish publication Tipsbladet, the attacking midfielder has not closed the door on penning a long-term contract at the Brentford Community Stadium but Spurs are the favourites to snap him up this summer.
However, Fabrizio Romano said on the Que Golazo Podcast last month that despite Tottenham’s interest in the Denmark international, the player’s priority is to sit down with Brentford to listen to their proposal first.
Jones has now revealed that Antonio Conte’s men are waiting on Eriksen’s decision, with the 30-year-old set to make a decision this month regarding his next destination.
The journalist told GiveMeSport: “Tottenham are waiting on Eriksen’s decision at the moment. He said he wants a few weeks to weigh up what he wants to do, so in June we will discover what Eriksen wants.
“It’s kind of out of Spurs’ hands at this point in time, but they’re very respectful of him weighing up what he wants at this point of his career, but they feel like there’s a chance and they’re waiting to see.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Spurs can certainly afford to wait for a few weeks for Eriksen’s decision as an attacking midfielder is not as big a priority for the club to address this summer as the two wing-back areas and left centre-back. So, I am not surprised that the Lilywhites seem to be focused on securing players for those positions first.
