Many Tottenham Hotspur fans would have expected Christian Eriksen to be long gone by this point in the transfer window, yet here he still is in August.
Eriksen revealed his desire to leave the club way back in June, after the Champions League Final defeat, stating that he wanted a step up and a new challenge (Ekstra Bladet).
With just one year left on his contract, some Spurs fans could be forgiven for assuming that one of the European giants would have come in and immediately snapped him up.
However, with just days left until the opening weekend of the new Premier League season, Eriksen is still a Tottenham player.
This means that Spurs are at risk of losing the player on a free in the summer of 2020. However, there is still a possibility that he may be sold as France, Germany, Spain, and Italy can continue buying players until September 2.
The Mirror have now revealed that Spurs are struggling to shift the Great Dane due to Daniel Levy’s huge £130m valuation, despite there only being a year left on Eriksen’s current deal.
