Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has said he hopes Christian Eriksen will sign a new contract as the midfielder heads into his last 18 months at the club
Spurs stars Harry Kane and Dele Alli have already signed long-term extensions and Pochettino wants Eriksen, who scored 10 goals and assisted 10 more in the Premier League last season to follow suit.
The midfielder has been linked with moves to Real Madrid and Barcelona
“He knows and we know what we’re doing and of course we’re working hard,” he said. “The club’s working to try to take the best decisions. Christian is going to take I think the decision that is best for him.
“We’re not worried — in football I’m never worried — but I prefer that he’s going to sign the new contract and spend a long time with Tottenham. It will be fantastic.
“Christian is a very good player. When he was signed he was a prospect, a very good player at Ajax but still young, and Tottenham provided a very good platform to develop his quality.
“Eriksen and Tottenham, and Tottenham and Eriksen, was a very good mix — good for Tottenham, good for Christian Eriksen. That’s why I hope Christian continues to develop his career here with Tottenham.”
