Tottenham Hotspur will face a real battle to keep hold of Christian Eriksen beyond this season, with the Dane now into the final six months of his current contract.

Toby Alderweireld was in the same position earlier this month before he signed a new long-term deal to keep him at the club until 2023.

However, once we pass into the New Year, Eriksen will then be able to talk to potential new suitors about a pre-contract agreement, as long as they are not English clubs.

This means that the midfielder could arrange to leave Spurs on a free and join a new team in the summer, leaving Spurs without a player and without any money to show for it either.

It has now been reported that Juventus chief football officer, Fabio Paratici, is ‘already at work’ in an attempt to sign Eriksen on a free and is willing to welcome the star ‘with open arms’ (Il BiancoNero).

However, Real Madrid (Independent) and Manchester United (Daily Star) are also reportedly interested, could Spurs start a January bidding war and recoup some funds?
