Christian Eriksen, currently earning £80,000 is on his way to recieving huge boost of £200,000 as he’s weekly wages as Tottenham looks to convince the Danish to stay.

Eriksen is heavily linked to both Real Madrid and Juventus and coming off-bench to take Spurs from 1 goal down to 3-1 victory, outlines how hard Tottenham might crash if they lose the 27-year-old midfielder.
But its so sad cause it’s believed that, just money can’t keep Eriksen at Tottenham. Eriksen wants Champions League to his name and leaving Spurs to higher class team is the only option he deems fit for this.
Although, he might be concurring to signing a new contract but this time around, he would ask for a transfer clause of a certain amount, incase any offers come along the line.
Popular English football television pundit, Paul Merson has told Tottenham to do anything within their power to make sure they keep Eriksen who has become their major hope of making it into the top 4.
“I’d go as far as to say that if he went before the transfer window shuts, I’d be surprised if they got into the top four,” Paul Merson said.
“I watched them against Aston Villa and they’d run out of ideas. There was nothing really happening for them. Harry Kane wasn’t getting any service as Villa kept things compact.
“Eriksen came on and it was a completely different last 25 minutes. He put the ball through the eye of a needle, he played little one-twos and he has vision.” Merson continued.
“It was a strange one [not starting him]. You do not want to lose him before the window closes.”
“I think he’ll stay at Spurs,” he added. “But he’ll have a contract sorted out in January to leave on a free next year.”
Tottenham is faced with a hard puzzle, either they let go of Eriksen now and bag at least £100m or loose him for nothing when his contract expires. Spurs just fight to make sure he pens a contract extension.
