Tottenham issue hands off warning to Barcelona for playmaker Christian Eriksen

Tottenham issue hands off warning to Barcelona for playmaker Christian Eriksen

Christian Eriksen's stunning performance for Denmark in their decisive World Cup qualifier ensured the football world sat up and took notice of his supreme talent.

"It did pass me by", he said of the 2010 finals.

Shane Duffy had put Martin O'Neill's side ahead in the tie on Tuesday night before the Spurs man notched a hat-trick to play a role in a resounding 5-1 win for the visitors on the night.

Many members of the first team have signed long-term contracts since the summer, emphasising the cohesion of the squad and the belief in the project being built at Tottenham - with none being more invested than Eriksen.

Now the wish to have Eriksen at Barça may come from a long time ago, and have been very weak, but it's claimed that the club have been making some recent moves regarding the player.

This is also the mindset that fired that magnificent hat-trick in Dublin when the pressure genuinely was on - or, at least, on for everyone else - and is now only emboldening the rising star who is maybe the best playmaker in the world right now and well on his way to being one of the best players in the world.

Midfielder Eric Dier agreed: "We're seeing the best Christian Eriksen we've ever seen".

The Danish midfielder has established himself as a key player under Mauricio Pochettino and has scored 34 Premier League goals during his time in north London.

He then brought up his 11th goal of the campaign and his hat-trick in the 73rd minute, reacting sharpest to Ward's muffed clearance and smashing past a helpless Randolph. He has grown into a leader for us and takes a lot of responsibility.

"Christian will certainly be one to watch at the World Cup next year". "That is something you want to take with you into the game". Those players are worth their weight in gold because they always contribute something special. "I think that is hard but he is definitely up there with some of the best players in the world".

Team-mate Nicklas Bendtner, the former Gunners striker, believes if Eriksen can maintain his form for several years, he deserves to be compared to icons such as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

"Can you compare him to the greatest in the game?"

"The whole mindset changes because six or seven minutes earlier, we could have been two goals up". The 35-year-old, one of four Ireland players likely to retire from global football, was only introduced at the interval with Ireland needing three goals to redeem their cause.
