He is not the only one whose contract ends in the summer, Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld are also on the list but Vertonghen who is the longest serving player on the squad wants to renew his contract due to the arrival of Jose Mourinho.

Eriksen is yet to start a Premier League game under José Mourinho who took over from Pochettino and has been in charge of seven games in all competitions winning five.

When asked whether he would sanction a sale to a domestic rival, Levy told Standard Sport that:

“We are honestly not scared to trade with our rivals,”

Levy added: “My view is really simple. For a player to sign a new contract, not only have the conditions got to be right but the player has got to want to do it. It is up to those players whether they want to stay at Tottenham and we’ll see.”

“I don’t want to comment on individual players too much. I actually think it is unfair. Every circumstance is different. There may be a player who wants to stay, there may be a player we don’t want to stay.”

Tottenham will host Chelsea on Sunday as they look to overtake their London rivals in the bid to make top four in the Premier League.
