Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen has reiterated his desire to stay at the club beyond the summer after admitting that he “feels at home” at White Heart Lane, the London Evening Standard reports.
Tottenham Transfer Gossip
The Danish international linked up with the club in an £11.5m deal from Ajax in the summer of 2012, and has already proved to be a hit having already bagged 22 goals in 79 appearances.
Eriksen admitted that he is enjoying life in north London, and does not intend to depart anytime soon, despite not being linked with an exit.
“I feel right at home at Tottenham,” he told Ritzau.
“I haven’t thought about leaving yet. I still have three years on my current deal so I’m not in a big rush to leave the club.”
The 23-year-old then went on to highlight that the club’s aspirations remain to qualify for the Champions League.
“Our target is the same as last season.
“We need to get past that fifth place and break the top four. We might have finished fifth this year but we weren’t close to the top four with the games we lost.
“We’ve a very promising squad with a lot of young players who have done well this season and they will only improve next season. So it will be exciting.”
Spurs finished the season in fifth place – six points behind Manchester United in fourth. Eriksen played a massive part in their quest for the top four, notching ten goals, but without him and Harry Kane’s good form Spurs may have struggled to make a serious impact.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino will look to bring in new faces this summer in order to build around his two prized assets to make a more significant challenge.
