Mauricio Pochettino unsure on Christian Eriksen's Tottenham future

He is out of contract in the summer of 2020 but if he does not sign a new deal by the end of this season, Spurs might be forced to listen to offers in order to get true value for the Denmark global. Who knows? I am not a person who suffers too much in this type of situation, because football is dynamic.

Football is about interests that as managers we sometimes can not manage.

"My ambition is to win the Champions League one day with Tottenham, or the Premier League", he said before tonight's FA Cup third-round tie away to Tranmere Rovers.

As doubts continue to surround the likes of Toby Alderweireld, it seems inevitable that Foyth will only continue to gain more importance in the Tottenham set-up, unfortunately for Bielsa.

Christian Eriksen is happy at Tottenham but it is his right to decide whether or not he stays at the club, according to Mauricio Pochettino.

"It will be fantastic if he will commit to the club for a long-term". He is showing his commitment.

Although Spurs are pushing to compete on all fronts, he has yet to win a trophy since heading to England and he may feel a move to Spain or elsewhere in Europe offers him a better chance of honours, following the examples of Gareth Bale and Luka Modric.

Dembele, sidelined since November by an ankle injury, returned to training alongside Jan Vertonghen (thigh) on Thursday, but Pochettino was unable to guarantee the 31-year-old would remain at the club beyond the end of the January transfer window. "At the moment I don't have any news". It depends on many things. "I said before it's a game to enjoy in a neutral position", Pochettino said.

"But always I told you, the club need to first of all be consistent in the top four and then think about challenging for trophies".
