Tottenham Plotting Sensational £200k/Week Contract Offer For Star: A Wise Choice For Pochettino?

According to Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur are prepared to table a stunning £200k a week contract extension offer for Christian Eriksen. The Danish international’s current contract expires at the end of this season, and he reportedly earns somewhere around £80k a week.

He has been linked with a move away from North London this summer, with Real Madrid and Manchester United among the potential suitors. Spurs, however, are keen to tie Eriksen to a long-term contract by more than doubling his wages.

Eriksen’s excellent record at Spurs

Eriksen initially joined Tottenham in the summer of 2013, in a £12m move from Ajax. He never had to look back since, notably being involved in 16 league goals in his debut campaign in the Premier League. 

During his ongoing six-year spell at the club, the Danish international has notched up 278 competitive appearances, during which he has scored 66 goals and provided 86 assists. His excellent assists tally of 86 is more than what any other Spurs player managed in the club’s history. His 66 goals also puts him among the club’s highest scorers.

Also, the 27-year-old has been involved in at least 20 or more goals in each of his last four seasons, which is indicative of his consistency. 

What can he still offer to the table?

Eriksen’s statistics suggest he has definitely been an asset for the club in the past six years. But even now, after the arrival of Giovani Lo Celso, the Dane can make himself a key part of the Spurs lineup. He can occupy the left-sided midfield role in a 4-2-3-1 with Lo Celso and Tanguy Ndombele deployed in double pivot while Dele Alli will operate as the lone number ten.

Eriksen’s proficiency from set-pieces, coupled with his ability to whip in dangerous crosses into the box could be a boon for Harry Kane, who has already hit the ground running. The English international scored two goals in the opening day win over Aston Villa.

Experience could be key

What could make Eriksen such an important part of the Tottenham Hotspur setup going forward is his vast experience of English football. The ex-Ajax prodigy has made over 200 appearances in the Premier League and has established himself one of the league’s most effective playmakers.

His potential departure from North London means that Spurs will have to sign a replacement, who may not be as well established as the Dane. Hence, the Lilywhites should give Eriksen’s potential contract extension full priority as they aim to continue their success under Mauricio Pochettino.
