Both Manchester United and Real Madrid have been linked with the Danish midfielder (h/t The Sun) as his time with Spurs seems to be coming to an end.
Levy has not ruled out the possibility of Spurs selling Eriksen to a direct rival. And it makes sense for the club to sell the player this January rather than lose him for nothing in the summer.
Eriksen joined Tottenham in 2013 and has gone on to score 68 times in 293 appearances for the North London club.
He has cut a rather forlorn and disinterested figure this season, scoring only twice in 16 appearances.
With Mourinho looking to streamline the squad, players without a future at the club will be sold and Eriksen could be among them (h/t Telegraph).

With Danny Rose and Victor Wanyama out of favour, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen out of contract in the summer, Spurs have a rebuilding on their hands.
Christian Eriksen has been a good servant of the club and has put in many memorable performances that will linger in fans’ memories. It is unfortunate that he might leave the club under such a cloud of negativity.
