Latest Spurs news: Mauricio Pochettino hopeful of Christian Eriksen remaining at Tottenham
Christian Eriksen saved Tottenham as he scored the only goal of the game against Brighton.
Spurs were frustrated by the away side as they tried to stifle our attack, but the Dane smacked home the winner from outside the box in the 88th minute.
The Telegraph adds that the Dane’s contract is up at the end of next season and Spurs could consider selling him in the summer or lose him on a free in 2020.
Pochettino spoke after the game and stated that Eriksen is special (h/t Telegraph):
“It is a very special situation.
“Christian is a special person. We are all special, different. We need to understand that. The timing for him or for the club to be agreeing something is maybe different to another player.”
Pochettino wants Eriksen to stay
The Argentine claimed that there is time to talk about a new deal and added he wants the Dane to remain at Tottenham.
“I hope and I wish that Christian can be with us in the future. I think Christian and us, we are so open to talk and we will see what happens. It is so close, the end of the season, and [there will be] a lot of time to talk after.”
Eriksen is one of the best in the world, and the Telegraph adds that some of Europe’s top clubs are interested in the former Ajax star.
The goal against Brighton was his ninth in all competitions for Spurs and the Dane also has 16 assists this season.

The 27-year-old would be difficult to replace without spending a huge sum, and hopefully, we can convince the Dane to sign a new deal soon.
