Eriksen wants his new deal to put him on similar terms to Kane and Lloris

Spurs should surely be giving Eriksen whatever he wants to extend his stay with the club, as the Danish international has been an absolutely pivotal part of the club’s successes in recent years.

The 26-year-old has managed to score 56 and assist 69 goals since his arrival at the club in 2013, a fantastic record for a midfielder.

Goals and assists aside, Eriksen’s overall play has also proved to play a key role in Tottenham’s side, with his link-up with fellow stars Dele Alli, Kane and Heung-Min Son often getting Spurs fans off their seats.

Spurs definitely should be offering Eriksen what he wants, as losing him in the near future could do their side more harm than good this season.
