Christian Eriksen has been one of the most influential players of this season for Tottenham Hotspur, who has played a pivotal role in the line-up to make it a great season for the Spurs, who have managed to finish in the second position this term. The Danish international has been on the top of his form and has attracted interest from a number of big name clubs from all over Europe.

Among the biggies that are looking to bag the brilliant midfielder for the next season, one name that might outdo all the other teams is that of the Spanish powerhouse Barcelona. The Catalan giants have fallen short of their arch rivals Real Madrid this season in the Spanish La Liga in the title race by just three points, while their run in the Champions League had been cut short in the quarter-final by eventual finalists Juventus.

The North London club are making maximum efforts to keep hold of their brilliant midfielder in the next season. However, if they have to let go of Eriksen, the probable names that can be lined up for the next season as potential replacements can be-

Max Meyer-

The German starlet has been one of players who have been linked with a move to the Premier League for the next season, with interests from clubs like Liverpool and Tottenham. Meyer has reportedly denied to pen down a new contract with his current club Schalke and might be interested in a move to the North London club. He has good pace and prowess and has been in good form, which might come handy in case he is brought into the club to replace the Danish midfielder.

Leon Goretzka-

Meyer’s teammate at club as well as international level., Leon Goretzka, might also turn out to be a good replacement for Eriksen in case the Danish midfield maestro leaves the North London club this summer. Known for his electrifying pace and superb dribbling, the German youngster can be a prize for Tottenham if he agrees to a deal for the next season.

Ross Barkley-

The Everton midfielder has reportedly refused to pen down a new contract with the Toffees and has been eyeing a move away from the Goodison Park, with huge interest from Tottenham to bag him in the next season in case they have to let go off Eriksen in the summer. Barkley will be a good inclusion to the Spurs side and can add to the firepower of Tottenham with his compatriots Dele Alli and Harry Kane by his side.
