According to Italian transfer expert and journalist Nicolo Schira, Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen will not be leaving the North London club this month.
Christian #Eriksen will NOT leave in January. His agent (Martin Schoots) is working for summer as a free agent. Talks ongoing with #Inter, #PSG and #RealMadrid. He has rejected a #Tottenham’s bid for renewing his contract (wages of €9M a year+bonuses). #transfers #THFC

The agent of the Denmark international wants him to leave as a free agent at the end of the season once his contract expires, and talks are currently ongoing with the likes of Inter Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid.
Spurs offered Eriksen a new deal worth £7.5 million per year in wages (including bonuses), but he has rejected what is likely to be their last offer and is set on a summer departure.
Eriksen was ready to leave Tottenham during the summer transfer window, but suitors were priced out of a deal.
Boss Jose Mourinho has failed in his attempts to convince the Dane to stay, and while leaving for free at the end of the campaign will be a huge loss for the club, it will give them enough time to plan ahead and bring in a quality replacement if need be.
The 27-year-old has featured in 17 league games this term – starting nine times – scoring twice and assisting two others.
Eriksen is in his seventh season at Spurs, and while he won’t go down in history as a Tottenham legend if he leaves in the coming months, he will no doubt be fondly remembered by the fans for his quality services through the years.
