Christian Eriksen one of the host of key players Spurs willing to sell
Tottenham are willing to sell their star playmaker Christian Eriksen in the summer transfer window, reports the Daily Mail.
The 27-year-old Danish’s current deal with Tottenham Hotspur is set to expire at the end of the following season, with Spurs struggling to tie him down to a new deal.
Eriksen is one of the number of key players Spurs want to sell this summer as Mauricio Pochettino wants to sign at least five players. Pochettino will have a budget of just £60m plus whatever is generated from the sales of other players, the Daily Mail adds.
Pochettino is also looking to offload Danny Rose, Victor Wanyama, Kieran Tripper, Georges-Kevin Nkoudou and Toby Alderweireld. Alderweireld has a year left on his contract but a £25m release clause will be activated this summer, which will surely make him available in a cut-price deal.
Selling Christian Eriksen will be a mistake
Tottenham desperately need to sign players in the summer transfer window after firing blanks in the past two windows. But we just cannot sell Eriksen, who is one of the most crucial cogs of Pochettino’s system.
The Dane is an elite playmaker and if we want to build a squad to challenge for the Premier League title and other trophies, we need to keep the best players in the team without any second thoughts.

Although he would command a huge transfer fee, selling Eriksen would be a big mistake just when things could be exciting from next season at our new stadium.
