Tottenham Hotspur’s star player Christian Eriksen has rejected the club’s latest contract offer as he feels he deserves a significant pay rise.
However, the player is keen to remain at White Hart Lane despite the new contract as he still has two years left on his contract. The 24-year old is currently earning only £30,000 a week at the club despite his fine performances.
The club management did not meet the player’s expectations in salary rise after a very impressive three years where he had managed to score 30 goals and a flow of assists for the Spurs as they achieved Champions League football last season.
The Danish international is keen to be brought into the same bracket as club’s top earners as other stars like Hugo Lloris earns £80,000 a week, Erik Lamela earning about £70,000 a week and Mousa Dembele £65,000 a week. Harry Kane is also reportedly earning £50,000 a week.
The 24-year old has drawn a little interest from Italian giants Juventus and the club management is keen to offer a better deal in an attempt to tie the midfielder for a couple more years as he is very much in the plans of manager Pochettino going into the new season.
It is also reported that now Eriksen’s contract was given highest priority by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy. The club are also in discussions with Lamela and Jan Vertonghen over their contract extensions.
