When looking at Premier League transfers over the last four years, Tottenham Hotspur’s £11m capture of Christian Eriksen from Dutch outfit Ajax in 2013 has to be up there when it comes to value for money.
The 25-year-old has scored 42 times in 179 appearances for Tottenham since arriving in English football, and a brilliant 2016-17 Premier League season saw the attacker register eight goals and 15 assists in 36 appearances.
Despite still being relatively young, Eriksen has also made 68 appearances for Denmark, and he was handed his country’s armband for their international friendly with world champions Germany on Tuesday night.
Eriksen continued where he left off for Spurs last season as he netted Denmark’s opener in the entertaining 1-1 draw, and Tottenham’s official Twitter account took the opportunity to praise the attacker following the match.
As expected, the response from the Spurs fans was extremely positive, with Eriksen sure to play a key role in the club’s assault on the Premier League title next season.
That said, the 25-year-old recently admitted that he would find it difficult to turn down a move to Spanish giants Barcelona if the opportunity was presented this summer.
