Sky Sports presenter Tom White has explained how Christian Eriksen’s situation at Spurs will impact their plans for Lo Celso and Ceballos.
Eriksen has kept no secret of his desire to leave Tottenham after six years at the club.
However, Spurs are adamant to keep hold of the Dane as he has been an integral cog of Mauricio Pochettino’s setup.
What wud Spurs fans rather?? Eriksen stays and signs a new contract, cus his move fell through. Or sell him and replace with Lo Celso.

But with only 12 months left on his current contract, Daniel Levy could look to cash in on the player instead of losing him on a free next season.
Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus are reportedly interested in Eriksen’s services but are yet to submit a formal bid.
“There’s been loads of speculation about Christian Eriksen but no formal bids as yet, that’s according to Sky Sources,” presenter Tom White said on the Good Morning Transfers show.
“Now he’s he expected to return for pre-season by Friday, he has recently spoke about his desire for a new challenge.
“We’ve been talking about it on Good Morning Transfers, but the thing is, it’s quite complicated because the Paul Pogba situation is also having an effect on this.
“Real Madrid and Juventus are unlikely to be in a position to sign both players.”
He also went on to add that despite all speculations, Spurs will sign more players only by funds raised by player sales.
“Tottenham are unlikely to add more players unless they sell, we are told,” he added.
“They’ve been linked with Giovani Lo Celso and Dani Ceballos as well.
“The crucial news is that Christian Eriksen, there have been no official bids as of yet.”
In the meantime, Tottenham are also interested in the services of Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham who they tout as a long term replacement for an ageing Danny Rose.
