Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly set to step up their attempts to tie Christian Eriksen down.
According to The Daily Mail, Tottenham are now ready to offer Eriksen more than double his current £70k-per-week salary.
Real Madrid and Barcelona are interested in the Spurs midfielder, according to this report, but he is mulling over his options.
And if Tottenham are able to tie him down this month, it would be the best piece of business they could possibly do in January.
The Denmark international is the creative spark in midfield for Mauricio Pochettino’s men, helping them carry so much attacking threat.
With four goals and seven assists in 18 Premier League games (of which 13 were starts), there is no shortage of supply to the likes of Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min.
The 26-year-old has also scored twice and picked up one assist in the Champions League.
According to Who Scored, Eriksen has completed 702 passes in his 18 league matches, including a staggering 32 key passes.
Tottenham cannot afford to lose the talented Dane’s creativity in midfield this January.
And with other clubs circling, it is time for Daniel Levy to prioritise this new contract and thrash out terms.
According to The Daily Mail, Kane earns £200k-per-week, while Dele Alli is on £150k-per-week.
Eriksen is arguably as important, if not more, than these two players and should be earning a similar wage.
If Tottenham can get him to sign an extension amid interest from the La Liga giants, then that would be incredibly shrewd business by Levy.
