The Dane made his intentions clear while on international duty at the start of this summer, claiming that he was keen on a new challenge.
Having served for six years in north London, Eriksen decided that the time was right to potentially say goodbye to Tottenham.
The midfielder was hoping that the plea would entice a number of clubs to make their move for him, particularly Real Madrid.
However Daniel Levy’s resilience in the transfer market which has seen him demand in excess of £70million has appeared to scare off interested parties.
Their hopes of signing the 27-year-old ended when they failed to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
It’s unclear whether that’s because qualification would have given them significantly more funds, or because the player wants to play his football in the competition.
Tottenham chairman Levy is mindful that Eriksen is unlikely to sign a new deal meaning he would be free to leave in a year’s time.
The report states the midfielder may be forced to stay at Spurs after running out of options.
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane would prefer to bring Paul Pogba to the Bernabeu ahead of Eriksen, if he has the funds available to bring in another midfielder.
The Los Blancos board are said to prefer a deal for Eriksen because it is more realistic financially, but they realise they will have to keep Zidane happy upon his return to the Spanish capital.
Eriksen remains a key part of Tottenham’s plans moving forward and they’re still hopeful he may change his mind and sign an extension.
“I feel that I am in a place in my career, where I might want to try something new,” Eriksen told Danish media in June when it looked like he could leave.
“I have the wildest and deepest respect for everything that has happened in Tottenham. But I have also said that I would like to try something new.
“I hope there will be a clarification during the summer. That’s the plan. It can happen anytime. Everyone wants it best if it happens as soon as possible, but in football things take time.
“It depends on Daniel Levy. And another club has to come. Or I have to sit down at the table and negotiate a new contract. If I have to go, then hopefully it will be a step up.
“Real Madrid? It’s a step up. But it requires Real Madrid to call Tottenham and say they want Christian. And they have not done so yet, as far as I know.”
