Ian Wright believes Spurs must secure Eriksen extension

Eriksen has been a stalwart in the Tottenham midfield for 7 years and will leave a hole that’s not easily filled. It becomes more apparent given Lo Celso’s poor return and Ndombele’s injuries.

Speaking on BBC Match of the Day, Wright was complimentary of the difference Eriksen made to the Spurs team.
“Eriksen came on and he started to produce the kind of football that you weren’t seeing in the first half,”
“He got himself in positions, it’s the way the speed and the swiftness in which he changed the game. Eriksen, that little bit of quality, they are going to miss him if he’s not going to be around and they’ve got to do everything they can to keep him.”
It’s not hard to agree with Wright after having seen the Danish playmaker come on and make a difference in the second half against Brighton or score a beautiful freekick against Norwich.
There aren’t many players in the Spurs team who can do anything similar.
