Spurs attacker Christian Eriksen has confirmed that his agent is negotiating a new deal with the club that could potentially double his current salary.
Eriksen, who earns around £70,000 per week under his current deal, has reportedly been in talks with Spurs regarding an extension for over a year.
The Denmark international has been subject to interest from various clubs in recent times with his contract situation up in the air. Teams like Real Madrid and Barcelona have regularly been credited with plots to snatch him away from Spurs.
Eriksen watched as Harry Kane and Dele Alli were handed new six-year deals, while manager Mauricio Pochettino put pen-to-paper on a five-year contract in May.
Speaking about the chances of the drawn-out negotiations coming to a close, Eriksen gave little away but admitted talks had not stalled.
“I have my agent take care of it so I can play football,” he revealed.
“There have been talks with Tottenham many times. I cannot say if it’s over yet – you must ask them.”
