The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder has been heavily linked with an exit from the club this summer.
According to a report from Football.London, Tottenham are looking to offer Christian Eriksen somewhere in the region of £200,000 per week in order to keep him at the club, and some Spurs fans took to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.
The 27-year-old has just one year remaining on his current deal with Tottenham, and he has been linked with a £130 million move to Real Madrid this summer, according to the Mirror.
Eriksen has been a vitally important player for Spurs over the past six years, and Mauricio Pochettino would surely like to keep him if he had the choice.
If Tottenham do offer the Dane a new contract and he refuses it, however, they must then sell him this summer, rather than risk losing him for nothing next year.
The talented play-maker cost Spurs just £11.5 million in 2013, according to BBC Sport, and he could be worth around 10 times that amount now - a sign of how much of a hit he has been in the Premier League.
Some Tottenham fans were split, however, on whether Eriksen would be worth a new £200,000 per week deal...
LET. HIM. GO.— mateo (@teojacques) 17 June 2019
Right. We need him. We don't want to sell him. He makes us tick. No guarantee a new signing would make us tick. Lo Ceslo should be added to help Eriksen, not replace.— Aaron Pitters (@aaronpitters) 17 June 2019
Exactly. Hopefully we add to squad and keep Eriksen.... Pay him, rest him,appreciate him— Martin Dolan (@Martindolan101) 17 June 2019

I'd rather we cash in on him thanks, he's served us well but his head has been elsewhere the last 6 months— Lee OJ Simpson (@LeeSimpson5) 17 June 2019
As much as I like the look of LaCelso if Erikson stays that would be a big bonus.— Fraser (@fraser8814) 17 June 2019
If only he didnt make them comments about madrid as soon as they come calling hes off so whats the point— mathew hill (@matttyhill526) 17 June 2019
Get rid.— Will Ryan (@willjryan) 17 June 2019
Use the money to bring in fresh players.
Eriksen deserves it— Archie (@BZChifan9) 17 June 2019
After having 75k (and below that at the beginning), he deserves it. But he should be more focused on game now— Edgy Cats (@xQuickscop3r) 17 June 2019
Yep, that’s good. Water under the bridge and all that. We need this guy - along with a couple of great signings.— JEJakobsen ⏳ (@NuffNonsense) 17 June 2019
