Tottenham want to sell Christian Eriksen in January rather than allow the Dane, who is out of contract at White Hart Lane at the end of the season, to leave the club for free.
Eriksen has repeatedly refused to sign the new contract that has been offered to him, and, despite the arrival of Jose Mourinho at the club, still indicates that he wants a new challenge at another club, with his preference being either Italy or Spain.
His stance contrasts with players like Toby Alderweireld, and Jan Vertonghen, also coming to the end of their contracts, who have indicated they are willing to reconsider their futures following Mourinho’s appointment.
Chairman Daniel Levy has, therefore, made it known that he is willing to listen to offers of less than £40 million for the 27-year old in January, although those interested in the player may just want to wait six months when they can sign him on a free.
