But Hunter told the the Transfer Talk podcast that he thinks Tottenham may find it hard to hold onto Eriksen this summer.

"There is no question whatsoever that Real Madrid see Christian Eriksen as the perfect signing," said Hunter.

"They would like to add him to their squad this summer.

"I don't see too many indications from him that he is desperate to renew and, while I do believe in Tottenham's financial power, to be able to persuade him to stay, Daniel Levy's regime is not one that is quick to say 'don't worry, we will outpay everyone else, because we must absolutely retain you'.

"Real Madrid wish to add Eriksen, albeit he is not an identical player to (Real's Ballon d'Or winner) Luka Modric but there are patent similarities and, if Modric has his way, I think he will move to Inter Milan this summer.

"It is absolutely crystal clear that one of Real Madrid's highest priorities this summer will be to try and sign Christian Eriksen."
