While many credit everything to Harry Kane, I personally think it’s Eriksen who is the heart and soul of Tottenham. The whole team is built around the Denmark international. While netting goals is what a team needs and Kane does it for them, creating them for Kane is where Eriksen is a master. In this season’s English Premier League, Eriksen has scored five goals and has created 88 chances. He also has eight assists to his name. Eriksen has completed 1040 passes this season with a pass accuracy of 81%, of which 73% were forward passes. Last season he scored ten goals and created 83 chances. In the 2013/14 season, he scored 7 goals and created 68 chances and had a pass accuracy of 82%.
There was a reason why Alex Ferguson wanted him when he was in charge. It’s only a matter of time that someone huge picks him up. With such great talent at his possession, I would expect him to be lured away to something bigger and greater at the end of the current season. The scouts of Real Madrid, Barcelona, PSG and a few others are already watching him and at an age of 24, it is the right time to sign the Dane.
