thumbnail Hello,

The recent addition from Ajax is delighted to join a side "going up" and is targeting at least a top-three finish as Spurs eye a place in Europe's premier club competition

Tottenham new-boy Christian Eriksen has revealed he is targeting a top-three finish and European qualification with the north London club after completing his move from Ajax on Friday.

Andre Villas-Boas thrashed out a deal to bring the player to White Hart Lane as the club’s seventh signing of the summer, as they look to re-build the squad following the record-breaking sale of Gareth Bale.

Spurs finished one point behind local rivals Arsenal in their pursuit for the final Champions League place last season, but the Denmark international harbours ambitions to finish in the top-three this term.

"I have played Champions League for the past four years at Ajax and I know what it is about," the attacking midfielder told Spurs TV.

"It's the best place to be and it's the funnest part to play football, so of course everyone wants that and me too. I think [my target is] what everyone wants to come: one of the top three or maybe on the top.

"I think every game's going to be like a Champions League game for me. That's what I want and that's why I moved, because I want every game to be exciting and I am really excited."

The 21-year-old is delighted to be joining a club on the up, and revealed that former Ajax team-mate Jan Vertonghen helped him make his decision to join Tottenham.

He continued: "I spoke to him a few times – he’s a really good guy.  From what I have heard he is one of the funny guys here. He is a really good guy and of course I've talked with him a few times.

"I think everybody has followed the development from the Spurs and it only goes up.  That's what I want be a part of, because I know there have not been many Danes here.

"It's really exciting when you see how many people they are getting, of course and I am one of them. It's really exciting and the club is going up and the players also, so I want to be a part of [it] and it's good."
