Tottenham are hopeful that Christian Eriksen will follow the example of Dele Alli and commit his long-term future to the club.
Alli ended speculation that he may be ready to move away from Spurs by signing a new six-year deal on Tuesday that will keep him at the club until 2024, and now they are hoping that his Danish team-mate can be persuaded to follow suit.
Eriksen has been in North London since his arrival from Ajax, and has built a reputation as one of the best attacking midfield players in the Premier League. Discussions with the player and his representatives about extending his £70,000 a week deal beyond its current 2020 expiry date have been ongoing since last season, but now club officials are hoping that the impasse can be broken soon.
Apart from Alli, Harry Kane, Erik Lamela, Davinson Sanchez and Son Heung-min have all recently signed new long-term deals with the club.
