Report: Tottenham set to offer new deal to Christian Eriksen

The Spurs midfielder has reportedly been the subject of attention from Juventus.

Christian Eriksen is set to be offered a new contract by Spurs as they look to fend off interest from Serie A champions Juventus, according to ESPN.

The Italian side have been linked with a move for the Dane, by the likes of the London Evening Standard, as they look to bolster a midfield lacking in the presence of Arturo Vidal, following his move to Bayern.

Spurs have no intentions of letting one of their key assets go however, and will try to tie the 23-year old into a long-term deal as soon as possible.

The playmaker still has three-years to run on his current deal but Daniel Levy will look to improve terms to reflect Eriksen’s growing contribution to the Spurs side.

Along with Nacer Chadli, Eriksen represents the only saving grace in what was a disastrous use of the ‘Gareth Bale windfall’.

Of the seven signed following the Welshman’s departure, four have been sold this summer while Erik Lamela could yet become the fifth, with Juventus also eyeing up the Argentine - as covered in the Standard's report.

Eriksen has been the standout signing of the last few years and possesses by far the most creativity in a Spurs side which all too often lacks it.

It’s vital the club retain his services and add to the squad in the next two weeks, to give the Dane a platform his talents deserve.
