According to The Daily Star, Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen wants to leave the club after feeling let down by their transfer policy.
Spurs historically failed to buy a single player in the summer, and Eriksen clearly has felt that the club do not match his ambition. With rivals Liverpool and Man City spending a lot of money in the last transfer window, the Dane obviously feels that his club have fallen behind.
Real Madrid will be the most likely club to make a swoop for the 26-year-old, as they have been a suitor of his for some time now. However, Daniel Levy has a simple solution to keep his star midfielder at the club- spending in January.
This approach would not only be appeasing Eriksen, but it would also please manager Mauricio Pochettino, who, like Eriksen, has not been afraid to criticise his club’s transfer policy. With rumours ever increasing that the Argentinian may also be leaving The Lilywhites soon, Levy is effectively having a gun put to his head to change things at the club.
It may seem like a miracle to Tottenham fans at the moment that their club are third in the Premier League. But while they are in touching distance of Man City and Liverpool, in truth, it may be a two-horse race this season. This will leave all involved with Tottenham to question what might have been if the club reinforced their squad in the summer, as they have looked barren at times this season. However, the club are less than a month away from rectifying that in January.
