Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has been backed to get the best deal for Spurs in any transfer of first team star Christian Eriksen.
Danish newspaper BT has assessed Eriksen’s current situation, running quotes from respected agent Ernesto Bronzetti, who backs Levy to get Spurs a good deal if he sells the Dane.
“Levy is a skilled negotiator and always gets the maximum price for Tottenham’s best players. So it’s certain that a player like Eriksen won’t come cheap,” he’s quoted by BT.
However, why Spurs would sell Eriksen at such an important stage of the season and when he’s proving to be so important for the team is a mystery.
There were reports earlier in the season that he was being lined up for a new deal at White Hart Lane, which suggests Tottenham aren’t looking to offload a player who has turned important games for them.
He’s an attractive investment for any side looking for a playmaker, but Levy would make any transfer extremely expensive when there are other, cheaper players who play in the same role.
Tottenham’s ultimate aim is playing in the Champions League, which is arguably more achievable with Eriksen regularly in Mauricio Pochettino’s first team.
Any side tempted to start talking to him or tempted to make a move to Tottenham needs to be prepared to pay a top price to even get the club interested in negotiating over a deal.
