Levy’s priority: saga continues as midfield maestro snubs Spurs offer

According to reports from London Evening Standard, Christian Eriksen has snubbed a contract offer from Tottenham Hotspur.

The Danish international has become a key part of the Spurs starting Xi since signing from Ajax in summer 2013, going on to bag 23 goals and 23 assists in 94 Premier League appearances.

Spurs have reportedly been trying to tie the attacking midfielder down to an improved contract for over a year, with his current terms due to expire in summer 2018.

In fact, London Evening Standard claim extending Eriksen’s current deal has become a top priority for chairman Daniel Levy.

But according to the capital-based publication, the 24-year-old has just rejected a contract offer from the north London club over the issue of wages.

He’s seeking parity with Tottenham’s top earners such as goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris, who takes home around £80k per week.

However, the playmaking midfielder is still interested in agreeing a new deal and talks between his representatives and the club are expected to continue.
