Barcelona to target Tottenham Hotspur’s Christian Eriksen in January

SHARE

Tottenham Hotspur may have a fight on their hands to keep hold of Christian Eriksen with Don Balon reporting that Barcelona want to sign the playmaker in January.

The Daily Mail have linked both Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho and Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil with the Spanish giants as they seek greater creativity in central midfield.

But Don Balon understands that Barcelona chiefs favour a move for Eriksen because they believe the Denmark international to be a better player, and a better investment.

One of the attractions to the Spurs midfielder over some of his Premier League counterparts is that Barcelona feel that the 25-year-old has room to improve, Don Balon adds.

Eriksen’s numbers in the Premier League since joining Spurs in 2013 are better than both Ozil and Coutinho.

He has outscored them both with 34 goals to Coutinho’s 33 and Ozil’s 24, and although his 44 assists are three fewer than the German, it is almost twice as many as the Liverpool man’s 25.
