‘It is difficult’ – Mourinho makes Tottenham admission, wants midfielder situation sorted

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho is eager to have a solution regarding the future of star midfielder Christian Eriksen.

The Denmark international is in the final year of his contract with the North London-based outfit and the Spurs star is now allowed to negotiate with other clubs for a potential move in the summer as a free-agent.

Eriksen has been heavily linked with the likes of Italian club Inter Milan in the recent past, who are eager to sign the Tottenham midfielder in the January transfer window to bolster their squad for the rest of the campaign, where they are involved in a two-horse race for the Serie A title.

Spurs boss Mourinho, while talking to the media as quoted by Sky Sports, expressed his opinion that the player’s future needs to be resolved as soon as possible to bring stability at the club.

“I think it is difficult for a player to be in this situation where it is ‘today I am here, tomorrow I don’t know if I am’,” said Mourinho.

“If he is here on January 31 he will know that he will be here on February 1, he will know that he will be committed with the club, with the fans, with everyone until the end of the season.”

Eriksen has been at Tottenham since the summer of 2013 when he moved from Ajax.

The Spurs midfielder has largely been used as a fringe man this season, despite his clear quality, which has disrupted the team’s momentum.

Tottenham fans will want to see a resolution and for any potential transfer fee to be reinvested in the squad.

Spurs have already added Gedson Fernandes to their ranks this month in a move that looks to set the scene for Eriksen to depart.
