Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen has admitted that he could not turn down Barcelona if they came calling.

The Dane enjoyed arguably his best season in a Spurs shirt last term, scoring eight goals and providing 15 assists as the north Londoners finished second in the Premier League table.

That form has led to talk of a potential switch to Spain this summer, with Barca said to have shown an interest in the 25-year-old.

Currently on international duty, Eriksen was quizzed by the Danish press about his ambitions beyond Tottenham.

He told Ekstra Bladet (translated by Sport Witness): “I still have a contract with Tottenham a few more years. There are always rumours about footballers…Barcelona are a great club and I don’t think there are many who say no to Barcelona.

“In the future I see myself at the highest level. That’s what I dream about. It can be in about two to three years. It may be at another club or it could be Tottenham if we have come all the way up.”
