Tim Sherwood: Christian Eriksen will struggle to find better club than Spurs to win trophies

Christian Eriksen has less than a year left on his contract

Tottenham are in a rather precarious position right now.

Despite adding the likes of Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon this summer, their squad is not in the best shape right now.

That's because Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld all currently have less than a year to run on their contracts.

The trio have been key men in the club's rise in status under Mauricio Pochettino in recent years.

Eriksen's loss would be the most devastating of all, as he is simply one of the world's finest playmakers in his peak years.

Without him in the team, Spurs' midfield really does lack creativity and guile.

But given Eriksen is in his prime, he can be forgiven for eyeing moves to other European heavyweights in order to challenge for the Premier LeagueChampions League and more.

However, former Spurs manager Tim Sherwood believes the Dane will struggle to find a team more capable of winning trophies than the white half of north London.

Ironically, they haven't lifted silverware since their League Cup triumph in 2008...

Sherwood told Sky Sports: “He’s [Eriksen] ran his contract down for a reason, it wouldn’t be a money-motivated reason.

“Christian Eriksen wants to leave the football club because he wants to go to a club where he thinks he can win trophies.

I believe that’s a difficult task, to find a club better than Tottenham to win trophies.

You have to feel Real Madrid, Juventus and Atletico Madrid - three teams heavily linked with Eriksen - stand a far greater chance of collecting winners medals in the not too distant future.

Will Eriksen be off in January or next summer?

Even Manchester United, who are a known potential suitor as well, have collected far more trophies in recent years than Spurs, despite chopping and changing their managers.

But would Eriksen sacrifice Champions League football to play under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer right now? Sadly for United, probably not.
