This current Tottenham Hotspur squad is arguably the best that they've had during the Premier League era, with one of their most important stars being Denmark international Christian Eriksen. The 27 year-old made the move to North London back in 2013 and he's developed into one of the finest playmakers in European football.
The Great Dane has scored 63 goals in 264 PL appearances for Tottenham since his arrival in England, but it isn't just his ability to score from midfield which makes him such an important player. His technical ability and delivery from set pieces has also seen him rack up 57 assists alongside that which is very impressive and only highlights what an asset he is to Mauricio Pochettino, but his future has rather worryingly been up for debate in recent weeks.
Once we move into the summer Eriksen will be entering the final year of his contract with Tottenham, so the possibility of losing him is becoming very real for the clubs supporters. Pochettino will be desperate to hang onto one of his star performers but the fact that they've been locked in negotiations for so long certainly doesn't sound too promising.
He's currently away on international duty with Denmark who kick-off their 2020 European Championships qualification campaign against Switzerland next week, but he's still getting quizzed on his future at club level - something he's not best pleased about.
"I don't want to talk about it. You write everything anyway, so there is no need to talk about it. I really just want to focus on the national team, when I am here" he told Ekstra Bladet.
It's clearly a topic he's getting sick of speaking about but its something that needs addressing soon or the rumours and speculation will continue to be rife. But his views were backed up by Denmark head coach Age Hareide:
"I'm not talking to him about it. I never interfere with it. Christian is so professional that he does his job in Tottenham, where he has a contract for a year yet. Now it's about the national team. Christian can go anywhere. It's not a problem."
