According to a recent report by Marca, Real Madrid are eyeing a move to secure the services of Christian Eriksen from Tottenham Hotspur when the transfer window reopens in January. The same source has claimed that the Galacticos will enter negotiations with Spurs over a potential deal to bring the Danish talent to the Spanish capital during the winter transfer period.

Eriksen’s Impressive Spell At North London

The Dane has been an integral member of Tottenham’s first-team since arriving from AFC Ajax in the summer of 2013. He has gradually improved his game over the past few years under Mauricio Pochettino’s expert stewardship at the North London club.

However, Eriksen has made a slow start to his campaign and has looked like a player lacking in confidence. The Danish playmaker has made 11 appearances for Spurs this term, scoring one goal while grabbing one assist on all fronts.

The Tottenham midfielder is currently out of form with his contract at North London set to run out at the end of this campaign. Even though Pochettino has tried to convince him to stay, it seems like Eriksen has his heart set on a switch away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium next summer.

What Makes The Denmark International Such An Exceptional Talent?

On his day, Eriksen can be one of the most creative midfielders in the English top-flight. His ability to unlock a rigid defence suits Pochettino’s playing style as he tends to operate as a free-flowing box to box midfielder in the opposition half.

Should Pochettino Allow Eriksen To Leave When His Contract Runs Out Next Summer?

It’s not often that a club of Real Madrid’s illustrious history and pedigree come calling, so Eriksen might fancy his chances of success at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in the coming years. However, Spurs cannot afford to lose one of their prized assets without bringing in a capable replacement.

If the Danish midfield ace fancies joining Los Blancos next summer, then Pochettino should not stand in his way as Eriksen has been a loyal servant to Tottenham for more than half a decade. The North London giants should grant the 90-time Denmark international with the opportunity to leave on his own terms.

Things are not falling in place for Spurs at the moment, so Pochettino needs to figure out a way to get the best out of Eriksen even if he decides to seal a move away from the English capital at the end of this campaign.
