Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino and club president Daniel Levy reached an agreement on Christian Eriksen's transfer from the club.
The 27-year-old remained only a year for his contract and according to reports he is not interested in signing a new agreement with the North London club.
Tottenham does not want to risk losing Danish in free next summer, but now it is also in the position that if they sell they will have to wait until January before they can make a replacement.
The clubs of the Premier League have decided to bring forward the transfer deadline at the start of the season, which this year saw the closure of August 8th in England, however, for most clubs in Europe the transfer windows do not close until September 2nd.
So now Tottenham, like other Premier League clubs, now find themselves in a situation where they can still sell players but don't have the chance to sign a replacement if they do.
However, according to the Daily Mail, Pochettino and Levy still agreed to consider offers for Eriksen if a party meets their valuation of £ 50 million.
And in a recent interview the 47-year-old Argentine coach admitted to being surprised by the club and the player is in this situation.
"It's not what I think the club or player expected. You can't put a finger on the problem, "said Pochettino.
"Try to minimize the problem, try to deal with the situation. This is an important player who must help the team with its performance.
"I'm always open to helping the club and helping Daniel's decision [Levy, the president].
"I really know that decisions like this are not easy but I always try to be in a position to get the maximum benefit for the club. And also for the player.
"The most important thing is to try to make the best decision for both parties."
Tottenham started his season with a 3-1 win against Aston Villa, where Eriksen came off the bench and Spurs continued with a 2-2 draw in Manchester City, where the Danish international was a starter.
Reportedly, several teams across Europe are interested in Eriksen, with the interests of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus who are considering making an offer, however, with all these teams also interested in the Paris Saint star -Germain Neymar, where the Brazilian ends up deciding which team has the funds to make a move for Eriksen.
