Christian Eriksen has said the number of Tottenham stars who reached the latter stages of the World Cup proves the club is a good place to be for top players.
Denmark crashed out against Croatia in the Round of 16 at the tournament, but nine Spurs players featured in the semi-finals, mostly for Belgium and England, while Hugo Lloris captained France to the trophy.
Eriksen has been one of Tottenham’s most consistent performers over the last two seasons, and his displays have seen him linked with a potential move to either Barcelona or Real Madrid.
However, the Dane has suggested that Spurs’ World Cup heroes are proof the club is an ideal location for top players.
“If you look at the number of players we had at the World Cup and showing who they are as players, it’s been a very successful thing,” Eriksen said during Tottenham’s pre-season tour of the US (via ESPN).
“We had nine players in the semis, which means of course that our team out here is different to what it would usually be. But the World Cup is definitely a good place to show that when you’re at Tottenham you can be a top player.”
With under two weeks until the Premier League transfer window closes, it’s extremely unlikely Eriksen will depart this summer.
Spurs fans will now be hoping the 26-year-old follows the lead of Mauricio Pochettino, Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son by signing a new long-term contract with the club.
