Tottenham star flirting with Barcelona ahead of possible summer switch
Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Christian Eriksen admits it would be hard to turn down a move to Barcelona if they came calling for him this summer, per Sky.
Eriksen has been in fine form in recent seasons, helping Spurs to challenge for the Premier League title and qualify for the Champions League in the last two years.
A number of his teammates, including Dele Alli and Toby Alderweireld, have been linked with summer moves away from White Hart Lane too.
The Blaugrana have been linked with Eriksen previously, with Andres Iniesta’s contract running out next summer, and he admits he could be tempted if new boss Ernesto Valverde shows an interest.

“I have been there [at Barcelona] at some point and it was not very good,” he told the Danish media.
“Barcelona are a great club and I do not think there are many who say no to Barcelona.
“But there is interest and there is definite interest. Before there is concrete interest, I have no opinion on it.
“There are always rumours about footballers. I still have a contract with Tottenham a few more years.
“In the future I see myself at the highest level. That’s what I dream about. It can be about two to three years. It may be in another club or it could be Tottenham if we have come all the way up.”
