Danny Mills has claimed that Tottenham maestro Christian Eriksen will be “worth nothing” in a couple of weeks if he is not sold to a European side.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Leeds and England defender says that the Dane’s contract situation, with a year left on his current deal at Spurs, means that he could become practically worthless when transfer windows on the continent shut.
Tottenham saw the English transfer deadline come and pass without clubs signing the attacking midfielder, who could sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign side come the start of 2020.
With the possibility of losing him for nothing hanging over their heads, Mills says that the Spurs board have a crucial decision to make over the next fortnight.
Mills told Football Insider: “At the moment he’s worth at the moment, £45-50million? In two weeks time he’s worth nothing and that’s what it comes down to, how much do you want that £45-50million in?
“Overnight he goes from an asset to no asset. Daniel Levy is very ,very shrewd, we know that, but it’s a decision that Tottenham are going to have to make quite soon.”
Eriksen started the club’s Premier League campaign on the substitutes’ bench as they welcomed newly-promoted Aston Villa to north London, but came on in the second half to help secure a 3-1 win.
