A source close to Tottenham Hotspur Football Club tells the Harry Hotspur blog that 3 parties have enquired for two first team players.
Two sides have made tentative enquiries about Toby Alderweireld and a third side have registered interest in Christian Eriksen.

If correct, then this comes as little surprise given the manner that player contracts have been dealt with recently.
The activation of a clause to engage Jan Vertonghen for another year spoke volumes. As statements of intent go, this barely constituted a ‘maybe’, given that the Belgian its without doubt one of our best players.
Christian Eriksen’s contract negotiations have dragged on beyond parody.
It’s difficult to narrow down the right words to describe the importance of the Dane, perhaps the simplest form is just that, ‘we look rather mediocre without him’.
Again, in any other business, a CEO that failed to safeguard his best assets would be handed his sandwiches in a roadmap.
Spurs minus either of these enormous talents will be a lesser entity.
