Spurs line up £20m Championship star as insurance for Eriksen

Tottenham are reportedly eyeing a move for a Championship star amid speculation surrounding Christian Eriksen.

According to the Daily Express, Spurs are lining up a potential bid for Blackburn hotshot Bradley Dack after he impressed when scouted.

Dack only joined Rovers for £750,000 from Gillingham last year, but has been in red hot form in the Championship so far this campaign.

It is believed that Spurs are eyeing depth in Christian Eriksen’s position, with the club set to fight off interest in the Dane from Real Madrid, Barcelona and PSG.

Pochettino is keen on bringing in a deputy for Eriksen regardless as his side has struggled without him. The north London side have previously been linked with moves for Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish and James Maddison when he was at Norwich.

Despite the rumours, Dack has always insisted he is happy at Blackburn.

“I could have left Blackburn but I’m way happier now than the time I could have left Gillingham,” the 24-year-old told The Sun.

“It’s a massive a massive club, I love being here, everything is here to go to the next level.

“I had conversations with the manager and the club and they said they didn’t want me to leave.

“So I told them I’ll leave it with you, I want to stay, I won’t kick up a fuss.

“I want to be here and if an offer comes in they accept it, then it out of my hands then it becomes my decision.

“I will always back my ability, I think I can go to the top level, and hopefully that will be with Blackburn.”
