Christian Eriksen has turned down Tottenham’s offer of a new contract and unsurprisingly the news has caught the attention of one of Europe’s biggest clubs.
Reports claim that Juventus are keen on the Dane and with the sale of Paul Pogba to Manchester United seemingly close, the Serie A club will not be short of funds.
Eriksen currently has two years remaining of his £30,000-a-week contract and has been offered £50,000. Unsurprisingly, Eriksen’s representatives think that he’s worth a better deal and it’s not hard to see why.
Despite being of the most important members of Mauricio Pochettino’s team, Eriksen’s salary is dwarfed by players such as Erik Lamela and Heung-Min Son, who he has often outperformed.
Eriksen is said to want parity with the highest earners at White Hart Lane. If the club fail to pay him what he’s worth, then they shouldn’t be surprised if he draws attention from other quarters and has his head turned.
