Both Barcelona and Real Madrid are admirers of the 26-year-old, whose current deal runs out in 18 months.

When asked by reporters about Eriksen’s situation, Pochettino stressed it was something out of his control.

He said: “Football is dynamic. It’s about interests the manager sometimes can’t manage.

“Eriksen is important to us. You’d like this type of player with you, but it’s a negotiation.

“It would be fantastic if he commits long-term but he has every right to do what he wants.”

Elsewhere, Mousa Demebele is also yet to put pen-to-paper on a new deal at White Hart Lane, with the Belgian attracting interest from the Chinese Super League.

And Pochettino confirmed there is no update on the 31-year-old’s future, with the midfielder out of contract at the end of the season.

He added: “No. There is still no news. No news, again like Christian Eriksen – a different situation – it is not only in our hands.

“In that business there are different parties that are involved, then it is about to negotiate, to talk, and see what the different parties want.”
