Barcelona are rethinking their decision to sign Philippe Coutinho and they have identified Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen as an alternative.
The Catalans are looking to add some attacking talents to their team after selling Neymar to PSG last summer. They have constantly been linked with some of the best attacking players so far, with Mezut Ozil one of them.
However, their attention has been drawn to the exploits of Eriksen who has consistently performed for Mauricio Pochettino’s side over the past three seasons. The Dane has also been outstanding this season, helping the North London side to wins over Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund as well as leading his country to world cup qualification.
Mauricio Pochettino relies heavily on the Dane in his midfield, and letting go of the midfielder in the middle of the season is very unlikely.
Eriksen signed a new Spurs deal in the summer of 2016, and with Daniel Levy having a reputation for being a very difficult business man, Barcelona could be asked to break a transfer record to get him this winter.
He has scored four goals and provided four assists across all competitions for Spurs this season.
