Christian Eriksen’s future at Spurs looks uncertain with the player refusing to sign a new contract with the club and reportedly having stalled talks over a new contract with the North London based club.
Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Juventus have all expressed their interest in signing the Dane international. Since his move to Tottenham in 2014, the player has established himself as one of the best midfielders in the league.
Eriksen reportedly wanted to earn more from his new contract to stand at par with striker Harry Kane. Spurs initially were reluctant but agreed later however since then the player has stalled talks and his considering his options with interests from Europe’s elite clubs.
Eriksen has often been touted as one of the players in the Spurs team alongside Kane and Alli. With his contract set to expire next summer, the club fear losing the player for free if they fail to tie him down to a new contract.
A report from Italian publication Calcio Mercato reveals that Juventus are ready to bid for the player in the summer as they look to add more depth in their midfield.
Several reports also reveal that the player has made up his mind and no longer wishes to represent the Spurs team. Lack of silverware is also deemed as one of the reasons behind the player’s decision.
Spurs have been linked with a move for AC Milan Midfielder Franck Kessie over the past few years but have failed to reach an agreement to sign the player. However, with AC Milan set to splurge a lot of cash and make some big signings this summer this have an opportunity for Tottenham to lure...
Spurs have been linked with a move for AC Milan Midfielder Franck Kessie over the past few years but have failed to reach an agreement to sign the player.
However, with AC Milan set to splurge a lot of cash and make some big signings this summer this have an opportunity for Tottenham to lure Franck Kessie to North London.
AC Milan have been heavily linked with a move for £70 million-rated Fiorentina winger Federico Chiesa who has been in fine form this season in the Serie A
Reports from Italy also reveal that AC Milan is looking to sell Kessie, Andre Silva and Suso in order to gather funds to bring in new faces and a new dawn of opportunities at San Siro.
Kessie is a player Manager Pochettino has admired over a long time and he appears keen to bring him at the club. The young midfielder has shown his class and skills in the Serie A and could grow up to be even better under the guidance of Pochettino. He is young, pacy and athletic just what Pochettino sees for in his midfielders.
In 25 matches for the club, Kessie has scored 4 goals and assisted 1 with a passing accuracy of 90%. He is a box-to-box midfielder and can often be seen going forward to launch attacks and dropping deep to complete his defensive duties.
Kessie is valued at around £35 million and in the present market scenario, the price tag is good enough for a player of his caliber.
Spurs desperately need new signings as they look to strengthen their squad for next season. The departure of Dembele has left a void and Kessie could just be the player they need to fill in that void.
Spurs next travel to the Anfield to face Liverpool after facing 3 defeats in their last 4 matches and edging closer to a finish outside the top 4 for the first time in the last 3 seasons.
Christian Eriksen, without any doubt, has been one of the best players at White Hart Lane over the last few years.

Christian Eriksen, without any doubt, has been one of the best players at White Hart Lane over the last few years. Since his arrival at Spurs, the player has developed his reputation as one of the best midfielders in the Premier League.
Real Madrid and Bayern Munich has expressed their interest in signing the Danish magician over the last couple of windows but a move failed to materialise.
Real Madrid are one of the best, if not the best, clubs in the World and they have been ever present with a potential move for Eriksen and were willing to pay in the area of £150 million for the player. A amount that good could help Spurs acquire new signings and make their team more competitive (especially with debts over the new stadium).
Let me help you with an example, Liverpool sold Coutinho to Barcelona for £142 million and used that money to bring in the likes of Allison, Keita, Shaqiri and Fabinho which has not only help them dominate in the Premier League (to a certain extent) but also has helped them establish themselves as one of the best teams in Europe.
Spurs could too follow the same path as no player is bigger than the club. Spurs need to strengthen their midfield, frontline and backline and money has been one of the biggest problems at the club who have not signed a single player in the last 2 transfer windows and have made developing a new fortress a core objective.
The sale of Eriksen could provide Spurs with the funds they need to strengthen their side and compete for a silverware and actually win it rather than bottling it because of injuries to key players and lack of new signings.
Dele Alli has been one of the best players for Spurs over the last few seasons but consistently had to play in numerous positions as his favoured position is acquired by Eriksen.
The sale of Eriksen could allow Alli to play in his preferred natural position and maybe we can get even more from the talented young player.
Alli has always stepped up in the absence of Kane and when the team required him to. Playing just behind Kane will also give him the freedom to play like a second striker that will give him the freedom to launch dangerous attacks and score a lot more goals for the club.
Dele playing in Eriksen’s position would give Spurs a new dynamic and also provide fellow midfielders with ample of space to create chances and score goals.
There is no point in forcing a player to stay at the club. We have seen it time and again from Coutinho to Dembele when a player is no longer keen to represent a club his form eventually drops which will eventually hurt the teams chance of winning silverware.
If Spurs decide not to sell Eriksen and the player just is no longer keen to play for Spurs it would soon start to show the team will eventually suffer and Spurs will not be able to even make a huge amount from the sale of the player as clubs will end interest in the player following a dip in form and his market value will drop furthermore.
With Eriksen already refusing to commit his future at the club and stalling talks with the club it is better to let the player go if he decides to leave. There is no point in forcing the player to stay if his heart is somewhere else he will not wear the crest with the same pride he earlier did.
If Eriksen decides to leave, Spurs need to understand the fact no player is bigger than the club and let him go and hopefully think about the positives that can along with it.

Spurs travel to face Southampton after booking their place in the Quarterfinals of the Champions League with a 4-0 aggregate victory over German side Borussia Dortmund. Hugo Lloris and Harry Kane have impressed in the last 2 matches and will have to be in exceptional form if they are to walk away with the 3 points from the stadium.
Dropping 8 points in the last 3 matches has put Spurs in a dangerous position and Spurs need to win all of their matches if they are to finish in the top 4 this season.
Southampton, on the other hand, will look to win the match as a defeat will put them in the danger of being relegated from the top division.
HEAD TO HEAD RECORD:
This will be the 193rd time the two clubs will face each other and Spurs have dominated with 81 wins compared to Southampton’s 62 wins.
Spurs have also won 10 of the last 13 clashes between the two side and will look to bring their Premiere league campaign on the right track after dropping 8 points in 3 matches.
Spurs victory over Dortmund was their first after 4 matches. Before this match Spurs had defeated Dortmund 3-0 at the Wembley before facing back to back defeats against Burnley, Chelsea and then salvaging a point in the 11-1 draw against arch-rivals Arsenal.
Southampton are just 2 points above relegation and need to win the fixture if they are to play in the Premiere league. The Saints have only managed to win 1 of their last 7 matches and put up an impressive performance against United however a late goal by Lukaku saw the visitors drop points at the Old Trafford.
For Spurs, Dele AlliDele Alli is set to mark his return to the starting lineup and if not he may at least get some minutes in the match. Harry Winks may likely to miss the match after being substituted in the match against Dortmund which saw him have slight discomfort in his ankle.
Southampton will be without Mario Lemina who is out with an abdominal problem and Michael Obafemi who is out for the rest of the season because of his injury.
Southampton: Gunn; Bednarek, Vestergaard, Yoshida; Valery, Hojberg, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Bertrand; Redmond, Austin.
Tottenham : Lloris; Trippier, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose; Winks, Dier, Eriksen; Son, Kane.
Southampton 1- 3 Tottenham

The goal was Harry Kane’s 24th in Europe and now the striker has become the clubs leading goal scorer in European competitions surpassing Jermain Defoe who earlier held the record with 23 goals.
Even after spending almost a month out because of his ankle ligament injury the player has still managed to score 22 goals out of which 16 have come in the Premiere league. The player is in contention for another Premiere league Golden boot.
After missing a month of action for Spurs people expected the player to take some time to return to his absolute best. But since making his return the player has scored 3 goals in 4 matches and shows no signs of slowing down.

Tottenham are very actively monitoring the transfer window as they desperately search for a backup for striker Harry Kane. The Striker despite missing more than a month still has 22 goals to his name this season and is in contention for another Premiere league Golden boot.
Kane has suffered ankle ligament injury over the last 2 seasons and has been sidelined because of the injury for almost a month over the 2 seasons. After the injury to Kane and Alli, Spurs were knocked out of the EFL cup and FA cup in the same week and also merely escaped with narrow wins in the Premier League.
With Spurs title run more than over Spurs are looking to reinforce their side for next season. According to Tuttomercatoweb, Spurs have made an inquiry for AC Milan’s centre-forward Patrick Cutrone.
The 21-year-old made his debut for AC Milan last season and managed to score 21 goals which made him emerge as One of Europe’s most promising talents. Despite the signing of Higuain, the player featured for AC Milan in almost every match and consistently impressed with his performance on the field.
However, since the signing of prolific Striker Krzysztof Piatek from Genoa in January the player has rarely featured for the Serie A side and has been left frustrated with the lack of playing time.
At just 21 years,the player has a lot of European clubs interested in acquiring his signature. The player is valued around £30 million and clubs like with Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund have expressed their interest in the young striker.
With the future of Llorente and Janssen uncertain after the duo failed to prove their worth in the absence of Kane. Llorente was impressive but at 32 the player does not have a lot of football left in him. Cutrone could be what Spurs lack in their attack. The player has an eye for goal and has been very clinical in the box. The player has scored 9 goals this season with just 10 starts to his name. His pace and creativity could prove very beneficial for Spurs.
The player is very effective this season in just 10 starts the player has created 15 key passes and averages 2 key passes per match and has a passing accuracy of 76%.
Cutrone could be very useful if Spurs decide to go for a 4-4-2 formation where the player can start next to Harry Kane. His presence would give Spurs attack another dynamic and also give Manager Pochettino option to choose different formations.
The player’s current deals expire in June 2023 but a bid in the area of around £30 million could convince the club to sell the player.
