Christian Eriksen was one of the defining members of the core Tottenham Hotspurs squad that rose from the midtable clutter to challenge and assert authority among the best in the land in the last 20 years – Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal.
The Dutchman played a key role in Spurs’ journey to the Champions League Final and hte 4th spot in the Premier League by scoring 10 goals and 16 assists in these two competitions. Since joining in 2013, the 27 year old has 49 career goals with Spurs.
I feel like I’ve arrived at a certain point in my career in which I may want to try something new,” said Eriksen while training with the Danish national team leading up to Euro 2020 qualifying matches against Ireland and Georgia.
“I have great respect for the years spent at Tottenham, but I would like to so something new.” Also because, besides offers, it seems likely that Tottenham will let his contract expire in 2020. “I hope that there’s some clarity over the summer. In football, you never know. Anything can happen at any moment. It takes time.”
“It depends on president Daniel Levy. Do I leave? It takes another club to have discussions. Otherwise I need to sit myself at the table and negotiate a new contract. But I cannot set the meeting by myself.”
Wherever Eriksen end up going, he will truly be a midfield asset.
