Tottenham Hotspur are on the verge of tying key playmaker Christian Eriksen down to a new four-year contract, according to The London Evening Standard.
The Denmark international joined the North London side in the summer of 2013 and has been an essential member of the Spurs side since.
Eriksen’s 13 Premier League assists last season played a major role in the White Hart Lane club finishing third, while the Scandinavian’s delivery and accuracy with set pieces continues to be a threat for the side.

The former Ajax attacking midfielder was believed to be stalling on extending his contract with Mauricio Pochettino’s side but the latest report will come as a tonic to Spurs’ fans.
It is suggested that Eriksen is on the verge of putting pen-to-paper on a new contract that will make him one of the club’s highest earners.
The gifted technician is set to earn £75,000 per week if he agrees.
For Spurs to continue to fight among English football’s top teams, keeping their key players at the club is essential and Eriksen’s commitment would be a massive boost for everyone at White Hart Lane.
