Tottenham transfers: ‘Christian Eriksen would improve Spurs’
Tottenham transfers: Ex-Man United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar says Ajax star Christian Eriksen would improve Spurs
Edwin van der Sar believes Ajax midfielder Christian Eriksen would be an excellent addition to the Tottenham Hotspur squad should the Dane secure a move to White Hart Lane.
The Denmark international spoke of his desire to leave the Eredivisie champions earlier this summer as he seeks a new challenge following five seasons at the Amsterdam Arena.
The 21-year-old, who scored 13 goals in 46 appearances last season, was reported to be a target of Liverpool and Manchester City at various stages over the past six months.
And former Manchester United goalkeeper Van Der Sar believes Eriksen is a top-quality player who would improve any side.
“He’s a very good player and I would be sorry if he were to leave us,” said Van der Sar.
“He has great quality, he is two-footed, is very quick, gives you a lot of pace on the ball and his corners and free kicks are very good, so I’m sure that if he went to Tottenham, he would be a great player there.”
Eriksen, capped 37 times by Denmark, has scored 25 goals in 112 appearances for Ajax.
