Meet Tottenham’s new playmaker compliments of Liverpool FC scout.(video)

Posted on August 27, 2013 by Random Spurs Supporter

He seems to have been on the scene for years but is still only 21 yrs of age and has been a first team regular for Ajax since 2010. He has scored 25 goals in 112 appearances and provided even more assists. At such a tender age he has already won titles and been a regular performer in the Champions League, on one occasion destroying Manchester United if memory serves me.

Heading into the last year of his contract he will either win a transfer to a top club and a huge new contract or threaten to go into his last season and become a free agent at the end of it. The chances are that unless he is prepared to sign a new contract with Ajax they will be forced to accept some sort of cash offer for his services before the window closes.

He and his agent have both stated that he would only consider joining a club playing in the Champions League, possibly because he is so young and his career could still go either way the elite clubs do not seem to be too keen on taking a chance and so it has opened the door for the likes of Liverpool and Tottenham to make their play.

There is little doubt that he is talented but then the Dutch league is no way to guage the ability of a player like him, Suarez and Vertonghen have both proven to be huge successes but in all fairness they stood out a mile when playing in Holland. Eriksen has a couple of major points in his favour, he is still young and he is relatively cheap at something in the region of £10m, if things did not work out it shouldn’t be difficult to recoup all or most of that fee but if things go well he could more than double his value.

Simply because he is another major target of Liverpool would tend to suggest that if Tottenham stepped in then their supporters would again be out in force protesting that Tottenham are spying on them and their scouts, that in itself makes for an interesting scenario.

Christian Eriksen is a talent but would he be a good Tottenham buy?

    We don’t need another midfielder ffs. Where are the defenders????

    And we need two or three decent replacements for Bale.

      until they went for willian I would have agreed with you as hopefully Holtby and Carroll will get their chance but that one threw me a bit and perhaps they do want a genuine playmaker nearer to being the finished article.
