Great Dane Eriksen was a target for Barcelona back in January before they secure the signing of Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool.

However, it’s said that Nou Camp chiefs remain keen on Eriksen following his stunning form since Christmas.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has also been tipped to leave, with Chelsea, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain all linked.

Eriksen and the Argentine are close allies, and Barcelona apparently believe they stand a decent chance of signing him should Pochettino also depart the north Londoners.

However, Tottenham are said to have no intention of losing either.

Daniel Levy firmly believes Pochettino is the right man to take Spurs into their new stadium.

While Eriksen has proven to be the heartbeat of the team, with his stunning strike leading an incredible comeback against Chelsea last weekend to secure Spurs’ first win at Stamford Bridge in decades.
