Former Arsenal and West Ham United striker John Hartson has tipped Christian Eriksen to settle at Tottenham Hotspur and keep his focus on football.
The Dane revealed back in June that he was keen to leave North London this summer to seek a new challenge away from the club whilst also expressing an interest in a move to Real Madrid (Ekstra Bladet).
Eriken’s hopes of departing Spurs were dashed when a move failed ot maerialise in the summer transfer window and will now have to remain at the Champions League finalists until at least January.
The playmaker is in the last year of his contract and unless he signs a new contract, he would become a free agent at the end of the current campaign.
Hartson believes that Tottenham will once again secure another top four finish and also tipped club record signing Tanguy Ndombele to improve.
Eriksen was named in the Spurs starting line up for just the second time this season in the North London derby against Arsenal last weekend, where he repaid Mauricio Pochettino’s faith in him by scoring the first goal in the 2-2 draw.
Hartson said on Sky Sports Premier League (10:10pm, September 4, 2019): “I think Spurs will be there or thereabouts, I think top four.
“I think [Christian] Eriksen will now settle down he’ll play every game because he’s a Tottenham player so nobody can come buy him until January anyway.
“Ndombele looks okay, he’s only going to get better. Harry Winks, Pochettino loves Winks. They have got a solid back four.”
