Christian Eriksen’s future at Spurs looks uncertain as there seems to have been no progress made in negotiations for a new contract for the Dane.

The midfielder’s current contract with the club comes to an end in the summer of 2020, and will thus be into its final year at the end of the current season.

Thus, if the former Ajax man does not extend his stay with the club, Daniel Levy will be forced to sell him in the summer if he doesn’t wish to risk the prospect of losing him on a free transfer.

According to a report in the Mirror, the Dane wants the club to match the £200,000 they’re paying striker Harry Kane. The report claims that the club are hesitant to offer Eriksen the same deal as they see Kane’s deal as a “one-off” in order to protect their number one asset.

Heung-min Son is Tottenham’s next highest-earner at £140k-per-week while the likes of Jan Vertonghen, Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris are all estimated to be on £100k-per-week.

Eriksen currently earns around £80k-per-week but there is no confirmation on what Tottenham have offered the Dane so far.

However, if it is the case that Dane is holding out for a bigger pay package, then perhaps there is hope of his future being resolved in or before the summer.

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. So, sell him while we can still get decent money for him. I’m kinda tired of players holding clubs to ransom. I suspect that Spurs offered a decent raise and he just wants more.
