Tottenham Hotspur blow: Christian Eriksen contract talks reach stalemate

Tottenham Hotspur have been unable to progress negotiations over a new contract with Christian Eriksen, according to the Daily Mail.

The Danish midfielder is keen to be paid on a par with Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris.

Eriksen has been in negotiations with Spurs over a new deal for around six months, however, no agreement is close to being finalised.

Following the saga of Toby Alderweireld’s contract negotiations, Spurs cannot afford to have a repeat with another key player.

However, after six months Tottenham have been unable to progress talks over a new contract with Christian Eriksen.

The former Ajax player is a key man in Mauricio Pochettino’s side and his departure would have huge implications.

Pochettino has developed Eriksen into one of the best playmakers on the continent.

His status has seen him attract interest from many of Europe’s biggest clubs.

The 26-year-old is keen to be paid in the region of Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris’ contracts.

It is understood that Kane is earning around £300k-per-week with bonuses after signing a new deal back in June.

Eriksen is one of the club’s most influential players, reaching the prime years of his career and has under two-years remaining on his contract – placing him in a strong negotiation position.

Interest from both Real Madrid and Barcelona will also help strengthen his hand in negotiations.
