Spurs playmaker Christian Eriksen makes Barcelona enquiries

Christian Eriksen’s best season for Spurs?

The 2017/2018 campaign felt like Christian Eriksen’s best season yet for Spurs.

The Danish midfielder has emerged as one of the best players in the Premier League and consistently leads the charts for assists and chances created.

Tottenham’s reliance on Eriksen was shown in the games he didn’t play (such as Southampton away) where they really lacked tempo and ability to control the ball.

Eriksen was also outstanding in the biggest games of the season as well, scoring against both Real Madrid and Juventus.

Plus, Eriksen guided Denmark to the World Cup with a stunning hat-trick in their play-off against Republic of Ireland.

Christian Eriksen checks in on Barcelona

So, it should come as no surprise that Christian Eriksen is being heavily linked with Barcelona on Wednesday.

Mundo Deportivo report that Eriksen has made enquiries at Barcelona to see if they are interested in signing him this summer.

The good news for Spurs is that a transfer seems very unlikely, despite the fact Barcelona are big fans of the Danish playmaker.

Eriksen sees an opening at Barcelona with Andres Iniesta leaving for Japan after Sunday’s match against Real Sociedad at the Camp Nou.

Barcelona trust in Philippe Coutinho

Whilst the Barcelona technical team are big fans of Eriksen, they invested a huge amount of money in Philippe Coutinho.

The ex-Liverpool midfielder is seen as the replacement for Iniesta long term at Barcelona. Plus the Catalans are moving for Antoine Griezmann and Arthur, from Gremio.

Mundo Deportivo also reveal that Barcelona made moves for Eriksen last summer, but they were rejected by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.

This was during the saga with Philippe Coutinho and due to the large amount of money requested by Levy, Barcelona kept their eyes on the Brazilian.

Eriksen is contracted to Tottenham until the end of the 2019/2020 season and is expected to sign a new deal in London this summer.
