Spurs are set for a crucial summer this time around as the club look to bring in new faces to improve the playing squad after their move into the new stadium.
The time is now really for the club to kick on and finally put together a challenge for trophies, although they do still remain in the hunt for the Champions League despite being a goal down to Ajax following their first leg in mid-week.
Mauricio Pochettino is a man who deserves to be backed by his board, but as well as looking at bringing players in, Spurs also face a tough task in keeping some of their star names at the club following their impressive form in recent seasons.
One man who is wanted this summer by the big clubs is Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen, with Real Madrid looking to snap up Eriksen while Spurs will reportedly ask for a huge fee in the region of £128m if he is to be sold.
And we here at the Tavern feel that Daniel Levy and Pochettino are right to be demanding this sort of money for Eriksen, who has developed into one of the finest midfield talents in the world during his time in London.
Eriksen has that wow factor about him what allows to to score the spectacular and win games with moments of brilliance, and while there has been questions over his consistency and ability at world level, he remains a class act.
For Spurs to even consider selling Eriksen is a big call, and they are therefore right to demand such a massive sum for one of their key stars.
The question that will always arise when players like Eriksen are touted for moves is just who do you replace them with? The top players in world football cost the big bucks, and that’s exactly the sort of player Spurs would need to look at if they were to seek a replacement for the Dane.
