Tottenham are ready to offer star man Christian Eriksen a new contract that will see the Dane double his current £32,000 a week wages, according to the Daily Mirror.
Mauricio Pochettino is hoping Eriksen will follow in the footsteps of key players the likes of Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris by committing his future to the club.
Eriksen – who turns 23 next week – was signed from Ajax in the summer of 2013, and is amongst the lowest earners in the Tottenham squad.
He has been without a doubt the most impressive of all those signings made that summer, and has been instrumental in Tottenham’s recent run which has seen them move to within two points of the top four.
Chairman Daniel Levy is keen to reward him with a deal that will see him double his wages, and hold off interest from the likes of Barcelona and Paris St Germain – who have reportedly been keen to sign the playmaker in the past.
A lot may well depend on whether Tottenham manage to qualify for the Champions League this season, with Eriksen’s form a key factor.
The 22-year-old has already scored 11 goals this season in all competitions, including a recent double against Sheffield United which booked Tottenham’s place in the Capital One Cup final against Chelsea on March 1.
