Tottenham are set to open contract negotiations with midfielder Christian Eriksen in a deal that could double his wages.
The Danish star has proved a hit since his £11 million move from Ajax in the summer of 2013.
Bought with money from Gareth Bale’s world transfer record move to Real Madrid, Eriksen has been the standout player from the bunch of signings made by Andre Villas-Boas and his recent excellent form is set to be rewarded.
