The talented playmaker has been pivotal to Tottenham Hotspur’s success in the Premier League this season as they are set to finish the campaign above north London rivals Arsenal for the first time in this era.
One of the cast of Spurs meteoric rise is 25-year-old Christian Eriksen.
The Dane has been a crucial part of Mauricio Pochettino side’s success this season, contributing 11 goals and 20 assists in 43 appearances in all competitions and his impressive form has interested La Liga giants Barcelona who are weighing up a summer bid for the midfield maestro.
And having played under Frank de Boer at Ajax before moving to White Hart Lane, the Dutchman believes Eriksen will have a wonderful career at Camp Nou based on his qualities.
“I think he can have a wonderful career”, De Boer told Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet .
“First Ajax, then Tottenham, and then the highest level. I think he’s ready for a step higher. He has everything that a Barcelona player must have. He has an overview, he has a work ethic, and he kicks well with both feet.”
Barcelona are expected to make major changes to their squad this summer with Luis Enrique set to leave and new manager coming in, and part of the transformation process is signing Eriksen as the Catalan giants look to bolster their midfield.
