Tottenham have been in freefall in the past month as the North London club has fallen outside the top 4 in a remarkable sequence of games. Their latest defeat to Liverpool has put the club out of the top four for the first time since the beginning of the season.

The club must also protect its players from being poached in the summer as the likes of Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld have 12 months left on their contract. Real Madrid are believed to be interested in the 27-year-old Denmark international. Tottenham chairman Dany Levy is known as a difficult negotiator and he is up to his tricks as he has reportedly demanded £130 million for the midfielder according to the Mirror.
