De Boer urges ‘complete’ Tottenham star to make Barcelona move

Dutch legend Frank de Boer has urged Barcelona to sign Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen this summer.

De Boer, who coached Eriksen at Ajax before the Danish midfielder moved to Spurs for just £11million in 2013, believes that the 25-year-old would be a big hit in Spain and wouldn’t be daunted by the move, according to a report in Football Oranje.

He told Ziggo Sports, “I think he’s has a great career in the making.

“First Ajax, then to Tottenham at the highest level. I think he is ready for a step higher. Tottenham is a great club, but he has everything that a Barcelona player needs. Christian has an overview, work ethic … Left, right, assists, he can score. He is quite complete,”

Eriksen signed a new Spurs deal in September last year that will take him through to 2020, but if Barca came calling it would certainly be difficult for the player not to have his head turned – no matter how much progress Tottenham have made under the leadership Mauricio Pochettino.
