Christian Eriksen has just twelve months to run on his current contract at Tottenham Hotspur with his future in North London well and truly up in the air.
The Dane admitted at the start of last month that he wants to leave Spurs after six seasons to seek a new challenge whilst also issuing a come and get me plea to Real Madrid (Ekstra Bladet).
While Eriksen’s agent is said to have travelled to the Spanish capital to see if a deal can be reached, an offer from Real Madrid has not arrived (Metro) with Spurs prepared to accept €70m (£62.7m) for him to depart.
The Evening Standard report that Spurs are prepared to offer the midfielder £150,000 a week to remain at the club.
Spurs have been linked with a move for Real Betis’ Giovani Lo Celso as a potential replacement for the 27-year-old and is five years younger than Eriksen (BBC).
Lo Celso has caught the eye after scoring 16 goals and registered six assists in 45 games for Betis last season.
Daniel Levy will certainly want Eriksen’s future sorted one way or another before the end of the transfer window rather than risk him leaving the club for free at the end of the next campaign.
