Christian Eriksen comments on Barcelona links


Christian Eriksen has admitted he would find it difficult to turn down Barcelona if they made an approach.

The Tottenham midfielder only signed a new deal in September but he is widely expected to attract interest from elsewhere after winning supporters’ Player of the Season.

Having started the season slowly, the Dane scored 12 goals and assisted another 17 to help Spurs challenge for the title.

The 25-year-old had an unsuccessful trial spell with Barca as a teenager, but he admits he would have to give any potential move to the Nou Camp serious thought.

“I’ve been there [on trial as a teenager] at one point, and it didn’t work out too well,” he told Danish publication Ekstra Bladet.

“But Barcelona is a fantastic club — I don’t think there a lot of players who would say no to Barcelona.

“But there is ‘interest’ and then there is concrete interest. Until there is some concrete interest, I don’t have an opinion about it.

“In the future I see myself at the highest level. That’s what I dream about. That could be in two to three years.

“It could be at a different club or it could be at Tottenham, if we have got all the way to that level.”

Spurs will no doubt rebuff any offers for their star men as they look to go one better than their second-placed finish next time around.


Eriksen is central to Mauricio Pochettino’s plans, though the Argentine is still set to move for another playmaker this summer.

Whether that will be a marquee, high-profile signing to compete with Eriksen remains to be seen, as it is primarily Tottenham’s bench that needs strengthening.

Barcelona may well have an active transfer window, however, after missing out on both La Liga and the Champions League.
