Tottenham Hotspur have increasing fears that both Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld will both leave the club this summer.
This summer will see Eriksen have just twelve months to run on his existing deal in North London and has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid in recent months (Metro).
Meanwhile, Spurs took up the option of extending Alderweireld’s contract by a further twelve months to the summer of 2020, however, it came with a catch. The contract extension states that the club must accept a bid of £25million or more for the defender if it is received before the final two weeks of this summer’s transfer window.
Rather than risk the pair walking away for free, the club are likely to cash in on the pair, according to the Mail.
The report suggests that after two transfer windows without signing any fresh faces, Spurs are likely to dip into the market at the end of the season – especially if Alderweireld and Eriksen do depart.
Jack Grealish, Jarrod Bowen, Carlos Soler and Aleksandar Mitrovic are all said to be potential targets for Mauricio Pochettino.
