The former Ajax star is contracted to Tottenham till 2020, but there has been no progress on him signing a new deal (h/t Metro).
The Metro adds that Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus are interested in the 26-year-old, and Tottenham could decide to sell the Dane in the summer rather than lose him on a free.
Pochettino was speaking ahead of our clash against Tranmere Rovers in the FA Cup and claimed different parties have interests before highlighting the importance of Eriksen (h/t Metro):
“Of course, Christian Eriksen is such an important player for Tottenham and of course as a person or as a professional coach or manager, you would like to have this type of player with you.
“But in the end it’s a negotiation and there’s different parties that have different interests.
“It will be fantastic if Christian Eriksen is going to be committed with the club for a long-term, and if not it’s his right to do what he wants to do.”
Pochettino added that Eriksen is happy at the club and is showing his commitment to the cause.
It would be a huge blow if we are to lose Eriksen as the Dane has the potential to get even better in the years to come.
