Tottenham Hotspur and Christian Eriksen have both been looking for a new club for the midfielder this summer.
With the 27-year-old entering the final year of his contract, he can leave north London for free next summer.
Meanwhile, earlier this summer, the Dane spoke about seeking a new challenge, with his heart seemingly set on Real Madrid.
However, with less than a week until the close of the transfer window across Europe, Eriksen now looks set to remain at Spurs.
Eriksen resigned to remain at Tottenham
Eriksen is all but resigned to remaining at Tottenham this summer, according to the Daily Mail.
Neither Real Madrid or FC Barcelona have produced an offer for him or shown signs of doing so before Monday’s deadline.
Whilst Spurs will keep hold of one of their star men until at least January, they are now under huge threat of losing him for free.
The Danish international can start negotiating a move with foreign clubs in January and leave for nothing in the summer.
In an attempt to avoid him leaving for free, the north London club have offered him a contract worth over £200k-per-week.
However, Eriksen is not interested in discussing a new deal and insists his desire to leave is not driven by money.
Tottenham losing such a valuable asset for free would deal Mauricio Pochettino’s supposed rebuild of the squad a big blow.
Before the start of the summer, the Argentine spoke about “a painful rebuild”.
But despite breaking transfer records and offloading deadwood, several players remain who are either unhappy or in the final year of their contract.
Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld are also entering the final year of their contracts.
This now leaves Tottenham’s squad in an unhealthy position and Pochettino himself admitted his side are unsettled.
After the defeat to Newcastle United, he said:
“I think this is my sixth season and the most unsettled group we are working with.”
Mauricio Pochettino unsure about Eriksen’s future
Pochettino also admitted after Newcastle he remains unsure as to whether Eriksen will stay or leave.
He started the midfielder on the bench against Steve Bruce’s side.
However, he was forced to bring him on with his side desperately searching for a goal.
Eriksen attempted to produce some of his creative magic but the Toon stood firm.
