Ian Wright predicts where Tottenham will finish this season – Arsenal fans won’t be happy | Football | Sport
“For me, it’s not shocking, I think it is possible [top-two finish],” Wright told the BBC.
“You look at the Spurs team, especially with Tanguy Ndombele, not sure what’s happening with Christian Eriksen, Giovani Lo Celso.
“The fact is, they have to keep players fit.”
Wright mentioned that Tottenham will have a better chance of success if Eriksen remains at the club, and Darren Bent is confident that he will.
Bent told Football Insider: “It’s massive that he [Eriksen] is still there.
“That’s almost like a new signing, now you think to yourself if they let him go, who do they bring in?
“Now me knowing Daniel Levy like I do, I can’t really see him letting someone like Christian Eriksen, someone of his quality, go without having someone to replace him.
“Maybe if they got a Philippe Coutinho or a Paulo Dybala in, then they probably would have done it but they can’t do anything because the window’s shut.”
Eriksen told the Danish newspaper, Ekstra Bladet in June: “I feel that I am at a stage of my career where I would like to try something new.
“I have the deepest respect for everything that is happening at Tottenham and it would not be something negative to stay.
“But I have also said that I would like to try something new.
“I hope that something will be decided this summer. That is the plan.”
