How to add Google events tracking code to CTA button on popup?

    I have installed a pop-up plugin on my Wordpress site. The pop-up has a CTA button that links to an inner page and I would like to track clicks on the button using Google events tracking.
    This is the Google analytics code I'm using:
    onClick="ga('send', 'event', { eventCategory: 'popup', eventAction: 'click'});"
    Code (markup):
    ...and the following code is from the plugin which outputs the CTA button link:
    if ( $has_cta ) {
            $cta_button_tag = sprintf(
                '<a href="%1$s" class="wdpu-cta" target="%2$s">%3$s</a>',
                esc_url( $this->cta_link ),
                esc_attr( $cta_target ),
                esc_html( $this->cta_label )
    Code (markup):
    I already tried adding the code directly to the anchor tag but am getting an error when loading the site admin page:
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in...
    Code (markup):
    Also I was wondering do I need to add anything to the Google analytics code in my site's header file to get the tracking code to work?
