Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen has been linked with a move to several European giants over the past few months. The Dane’s current contract with Spurs runs out in the summer of 2020, and he has not yet put pen to paper on a new deal.

Spurs might be forced to let the 27-year-old leave in the summer if he doesn’t extend his stay, as his contract with the club will be down to its final year.

While the midfielder has been linked primarily with Real Madrid and Barcelona, a report from CalcioMercato recently claimed that Juventus have already held talks with the player’s entourage, and are considering bidding for him in the summer.

The Dane was asked about his future and a potential move away from the club while on international duty with Denmark this week, but refused to comment on the topic.

However, the midfielder certainly didn’t do much to assure Spurs fans that he will be staying beyond this season.

Eriksen said (Ekstra Bladet): “I don’t want to talk about it. You write everything anyway, so there is no need to talk about it. I really just want to focus on the national team, when I am here.”

Denmark coach Age Hareide added: “I’m not talking to him about it. I never interfere with it. Christian is so professional that he does his job in Tottenham, where he has a contract for a year yet. Now it’s about the national team. Christian can go anywhere. It’s not a problem.”
