The Tottenham Hotspur duo have been linked with an exit from the club this summer.

Phil Thompson suggested that Christian Eriksen and Fernando Llorente could both leave Tottenham this summer, when speaking exclusively to Sky Sports.

The Dane has just one year remaining on his current contract with Spurs, whilst the Spaniard is out of contract in a few weeks time, and it seems as though there has been no progress on any talk of extensions for either player.


According to a report from the Express, Real Madrid want to sign Tottenham ace Eriksen this summer, whilst there will surely be no shortage of potential suitors for Llorente, considering the fact that he will be available on a free transfer.

And Thompson told Sky Sports how the Spurs duo will likely leave north London this summer, considering their respective contractual situations:

"There is talk of Christian Eriksen leaving, who is their creative influence. That would be a big blow to Tottenham. I think Fernando Llorente could move on too as he will want more game time."

Tottenham fans will probably not be too sad to see the back of Llorente, but they will be hoping that Erisken signs a new deal to keep him at the club for the foreseeable future.

That seems highly unlikely as things strand, however, and it would be no surprise to see the Spurs midfielder leave for pastures new after the Champions League final.
