Christian Eriksen is unlikely to sign a new contract with Tottenham any time soon, according to the Times.
The Dane’s current deal expires in the summer of 2020, and previous reports have tipped him to be the next Spurs star to extend his contract with the club.
Mauricio Pochettino, Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Erik Lamela and Heung-Min Son have all signed new long-term deals in recent months, but Tottenham appear to be having difficulties tying Eriksen down.
And the Times claims negotiations are unlikely to end any time soon with Eriksen in a strong position compared to the club, which is apparently a source of frustration for chairman Daniel Levy.
Eriksen is currently thought to earn around £75,000 a week. That figure is likely to be doubled if he commits his future to Spurs.
The 26-year-old, who is set to captain Denmark against Wales in the UEFA Nations League on Friday night, has been one of Tottenham’s best performers under Mauricio Pochettino’s management.
He has been linked with possible moves to Barcelona and Real Madrid, but Spurs will hope they can convince him to stay for the long haul.
