Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen has refused to play down the possibility of him choosing to leave north London this summer.
The Denmark international did not necessarily have his best season at the club during last term, but he remains one of the most vital players in the Spurs squad.
Eriksen has maintained a professional attitude throughout his stay at the club, and indeed, the midfielder, along with Mousa Sissoko were the players who hardly missed a game for Mauricio Pochettino’s side during last season.
But the fact that the 27-year-old is yet to extend his contract with the club has obviously encouraged the media to come up with more speculation over him possibly leaving London this summer.
In the midst of all the talk about his uncertain future, Eriksen has fueled the rumours by revealing that he might be open to an exit afterall.
The midfielder has suggested that he perhaps needs to leave to try out ‘something new’.
“If I have to go, then hopefully it will be a step up,” Eriksen told Ekstrabladet
“I hope there will be a clarification during the summer. That’s the plan.
“I feel that I am a place in my career where I might want to try something new.
“I have the wildest and deepest respect for everything that has happened in Tottenham.
“But in football you do not know when clarification comes. It can happen any time.”
