Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen has played down reports linking him to Barcelona.
Corners of the media have touted Eriksen as a potential alternative to Philippe Coutinho if that deal doesn’t go through.
The Dane told BBC 5 Live (in quotes published by The Express) the link is simply a rumour.
He said: “It’s nothing. Ever since I’ve played football and been scouted the first few times I’ve been linked away, to every corner of the world.
“They’re a great club of course and it means you’re doing a good thing [to get noticed] and it means you need to keep going until you see or hear something.
“Until then it’s just rumours so it’s nothing to comment about really.”
Eriksen was instrumental in Spurs’ 2-0 victory at Newcastle last weekend, and the supporters will be happy to hear he’s staying put.
