Report - PSG biding their time over Christian Eriksen approach

The Standard claims PSG are taking their time over making a move for Christian Eriksen.

The Standard has reported that French giants Paris Saint-Germain will continue to monitor Tottenham Hotspur star Christian Eriksen over the rest of the season.

The paper suggests that PSG are watching the Dane closely as he goes about his business at White Hart Lane.

Eriksen has quickly established himself as one of the best players at Spurs following his high profile move from Dutch giants Ajax.

“Standard Sport understands PSG have been very impressed by Eriksen’s performances for Tottenham this season, and will continue to monitor his form closely during the second half of the campaign,” reports the paper.

“Eriksen figures high on the list of players PSG are watching but if circumstances remain the same, it would be very difficult to prise the 22-year-old away from White Hart Lane.”

So do Tottenham have any chance of keeping Eriksen, even if PSG start making big bids for the player?

There are some reasons why Spurs fans can be confident that Eriksen won’t go anywhere, starting with the fact he’s never stated any desire to leave North London.

He appears to be a team player and heavily focused on succeeding and moving forward with Spurs.

He’s also got a very good contract, which runs for another three years and while PSG could improve his current deal, he’s unlikely to be paid a higher wage bracket similar to some stars at the French club.

“Although there have been no official talks regarding a new deal for Eriksen – understandable when he is less than two years into a five-year contract – discussions will surely take place next summer between Spurs and Eriksen’s representatives.”

It seems like Spurs aren’t under any real pressure and PSG appear to be gambling that the talks over a new contract will break down, allowing them to swoop in and take the problem away for Daniel Levy.

However, there’s absolutely no indication he won’t commit himself to a new deal.
