Juventus Interested In This Danish Midfield Maestro: Should Tottenham Hotspur Let Him Leave?

Tottenham Hotspur’s Christian Eriksen has drawn interest from Serie A side, Juventus for a possible transfer in the coming weeks. The Denmark international is expected to take up the number 10 role alongside Paulo Dybala and in front of Miralem Pjanic.

This is a high ceiling that the Bianconeri are aiming for especially in such an inflated market where talented attacking midfielders are priced at astronomical rates. A bid for Eriksen along with Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil can reportedly cost the Italian outfit £62m – a bargain amount which will most likely be declined by the Spurs.

Eriksen is one of the best midfielders in the Premier League and is a crucial part of the lineup under Mauricio Pochettino. He is a part and parcel of the midfield trio alongside Dele Alli and Son Heung-min and has notched up 7 goals and 8 assists this season.

The 25-year-old is a midfield magician with a vision to find every single one of his teammates in threatening positions. He was dubbed as one Europe’s top prospects during his time with Ajax and has definitely followed up on the high praises. With a staggering 64 assist tally in his 207 appearances for the North London club, Eriksen has also registered the Tottenham player of the season award twice over the past four-and-a-half years.

Juventus have signed Blaise Matuidi from Paris Saint-Germain over the summer and is currently a point away from taking the top spot from Napoli in the Serie A. Although Pjanic primarily came in to take up the attacking midfield role, he has been converted into a holding midfielder under Massimiliano Allegri over the past couple of seasons.

He pairs up with Sami Khedira and Matuidi in the midfield trio and has been quite impressive ever since he arrived at the Juventus Stadium in the summer of 2016. However, this begs the question has the club lost faith in him or are they looking for a backup behind an injured Dybala? The Argentine maestro started off the season in prolific form but has hit a rough patch with an unfortunate hamstring injury. He is set to return to the squad ahead of the Champions League round of 16 fixture against Tottenham.

This makes the entire transfer speculation over Eriksen very confusing although Ozil’s case can be made who is serving his last season with Arsenal. Juventus’ title ambitions are hopeful of defending their league title and a strong finish in the European competition. Maybe a quality player like Eriksen can make all the difference but Allegri will have a hard time prying him away from Pochettino.
