Spurs transfer news: Jan Vertonghen wants Christian Eriksen to remain at Tottenham
The Danish midfielder has just one year left on his current deal, and the Evening Standard reports that European giants Real Madrid and Inter Milan are interested in the 27-year-old.
Eriksen also spoke about taking up a new challenge after Spurs lost the Champions League final to Liverpool.
Manchester United are also eyeing the Dane as a possible replacement should Paul Pogba leave in the summer (h/t Evening Standard).
However, Vertonghen wants the Dane to remain at Tottenham and was hopeful of the team sticking around.
The Belgian defender highlighted the years spent together with Eriksen. Speaking to Sky Sports News (h/t Evening Standard), he said:
“Obviously when the transfer window starts there are a lot of rumours, but there were rumours last year and everyone stayed together, so I’m hopeful.
“Christian is a great player. I have known him since he was 16, played with him since he was 16 or 17 [at Ajax] and I hope he’s with Tottenham next season. He’s an exceptional player.”
A major summer ahead for Tottenham
Tottenham have to build on their Champions League journey and we should do all that is possible to keep hold of our best players.
Eriksen falls under that category and finding a replacement for the Dane will not be cheap or easy.
Spurs have to strengthen their side as Mauricio Pochettino performed a miracle by taking us to the Champions League final.
