Eriksen open to possibility of joining Tottenham

The playmaker has less than a year remaining on his contract at Ajax and reveals his interest in a potential switch to White Hart Lane following recent speculation
Ajax attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen has revealed that he is open to the possibility of joining Tottenham and believes they are a "great club".

The Denmark international had been linked with a move to Liverpool and AC Milan earlier in the summer but, as exclusively revealed by Goal last year, Spurs made an enquiry for his services in December and have maintained their interest.

And, with less than a year left on his existing contract, the 21-year-old is willing to consider linking up with his ex-Ajax team-mate Jan Vertonghen in north London, although talks have yet to take place.

"Tottenham are a great club," Eriksen told BT. "I know from Vertonghen that it is a good club, which is interesting, but there has not been any contact.

"I do not know if I am going to leave Ajax. We'll find out in two weeks. There are to my knowledge no negotiations right now either with a new club or Ajax.

"If there is a good approach [from another club], I see as an opportunity to try something new but, if nothing comes, I do not mind staying."

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has been busy reshaping his squad so far this summer - with the likes of Paulinho, Nacer Chadli and Roberto Soldado all joining the club, while the future of star man Gareth Bale is still unclear.
