According to La Gazzetta dello Sport journalist, Nicolo Schira, Tottenham Hotspur have submitted a fresh contract offer to midfielder Christian Eriksen.
The 27-year-old was heavily linked with a move away from Spurs this summer, with both La Liga clubs – Real and Atletico Madrid – reportedly showing interest in signing him.
However, Spurs didn’t receive an acceptable offer from any foreign club for Eriksen, and the former Ajax midfielder stayed on.
The Danish midfielder, who has been capped 90 times by his country, is in the final year of his contract at Spurs. If Spurs fail to offload him in the January transfer window, then they are at risk of losing him for free next summer.
Schira has now claimed on Twitter that Spurs have offered him a €7.5 million a year contract, roughly equating to £130k-per-week, that will last till 2024. He adds that European giants like Juventus, Inter Milan and PSG are keen to sign him if he doesn’t extend his contract at the north London club.
#Tottenham have offered to Christian #Eriksen a renew until 2024 by €7,5M a year. Talks ongoing, but #AtleticoMadrid, #PSG, #RealMadrid, #Inter and #Juventus are really interested in him and are in race if he will not renew the contract. #transfers #THFC

Mauricio Pochettino will try his best to convince Eriksen to commit his future at Spurs, but the Danish midfielder probably feels that he could earn a lot more if he moved to clubs like PSG, Juventus or Real Madrid.
Eriksen is one of the best-attacking midfielders in the Premier League, and the latest offer from Spurs looks tempting. With negotiation ongoing amongst all parties involved, Spurs will receive a massive boost if Eriksen finally decides to put pen to paper on the latest deal.
