Robbie Keane has suggested that Christian Eriksen will leave Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window, as quoted in Football.London.

The former Tottenham forward made the comments following the North London club’s 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United at home in the Premier League on Sunday.

Eriksen did not start the match at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and came on as a substitute in the 62nd minute.

 

After the match, Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino told BBC Sport that he is not sure if the attacking midfielder will be at the club beyond the summer transfer window.

Keane believes that the signs are that Eriksen will not be at Tottenham for much longer.

Football.London quotes Keane as saying about Eriksen: "I have got a feeling he probably could go. (Mauricio) Pochettino’s interview after the game showed he wasn’t happy.

"It’s clear there are a few problems in the dressing room with a few players that either want to leave or are up (contracts) at the end of the season. It’s up to the club to sort out that situation. It’s going to be a long 10 days.”

Potential big blow for Tottenham Hotspur

Eriksen is one of the best and most creative players in Europe, and it would be a massive blow for Tottenham if they lose the Denmark international now.

Spurs really do not have a readymade replacement for the 27-year-old in their squad, although summer loan signing Giovani Lo Celso could come good.
