Tottenham Hotspur are set to concentrate on securing the long-term services of Christian Eriksen, according to the Evening Standard.

The 26-year-old is a key member of Mauricio Pochettino’s squad but, despite contract talks beginning last season, the club and player have yet to agree an extension to his current deal which expires in 2020.

After Dele Alli penned a new £150,000-per-week contract on Wednesday, the Dane will want a significant increase on his £70,000-a-week salary.

The north London outfit are optimistic that their star will agree to stay but with reported interest from both Real Madrid and Barcelona, chairman Daniel Levy is keener to move negotiations towards a conclusion.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy aims to secure the long-term future of Christian Eriksen.

Eriksen, who claimed an assist in Spurs’ 3-1 League Cup victory at West Ham on Wednesday, has established himself as one of the best creative midfielders in Europe since making the switch to England from Ajax in 2013.

The Premier League side paid the Dutch giants £11million for the playmaker’s signature and he has gone on to claim 57 goals and 72 assists in 236 matches.
