The 21 year old former Ajax man is arguably the one signing, of seven, that Tottenham made last summer that has actually delivered the goods and is not a player the north London club would want to lose however the lack of a Champions League spot may lead to Eriksen considering his future at White Hart Lane.

Indeed chairman Daniel Levy will be counting the cost of not finishing in the top four and having forked out over £100m on new additions last summer he may be faced with the very real prospect of having to balance the books.

Whilst the lion’s share of the money used to sign the likes of Erik Lamela, Roberto Soldado, Paulinho and Nacer Chadli came from the sale of Gareth Bale Tottenham are having to pay the price of once again failing to secure a seat at Europe’s top table.

Eriksen has provided ten assists and scored ten goals in his debut season at Spurs.

Juventus are said to be ready to offer €18m (£14.8m) for Eriksen, who cost Tottenham £11.5m last August.
