• Spurs manager fearful of effect of speculation
• Eriksen has been linked with several clubs but no bids made
Mauricio Pochettino fears the transfer market uncertainty over Christian Eriksen is hurting the player and Tottenham, as he expressed surprise that the situation had not been resolved.
Eriksen said at the end of last season that he was open to a new challenge at another club – having been at Spurs since 2013 – in a move that was interpreted as being designed to encourage Real Madrid to bid for him. The 27-year-old, who is out of contract at Spurs next summer, has long been linked with a switch to the Bernabéu.
