Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is keeping his hopes up on midfielder Christian Eriksen who’s yet to sign a new deal at the club.
Argentine tactician Pochettino spoke to reporters about Christian Eriksen after the Danish international player started in their Premier League meeting with Brighton and Hove Albion on Tuesday night.
Spurs beat struggling Brighton by a lone goal to strengthen their grip on third position on the Premier League table.
After the game, Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino told reporters during his post-match press conference that he’s hopeful about Christian Eriksen signing a new deal at the club.
Christian Eriksen is a summer transfer target for fellow Premier League club Manchester United.
The Danish international playmaker has also been touted as a potential transfer signing for Spanish giants Real Madrid.
He has just one year left on his current deal at Tottenham and the North London club might need to sell him this summer if the former Ajax Amsterdam midfielder fails to sign a new deal.
Christian Eriksen scored the only goal of the game for Tottenham Hotspur in their game against Brighton who are battling to avoid relegation from the top flight of English football.
Eriksen has now scored seven league goals this season in addition to 12 assists.
