Ajax boss Frank De Boer admits Christian Eriksen will be an “enormous loss”, if he makes his move to Tottenham.
The 21-year-old midfielder has been given permission to talk to Tottenham with a fee of £10.7million split over three years said to be in place.
Eriksen created more chances than any other player in the Dutch Eredivisie last season (138) and could be just the player we are looking for to unlock defences.
“His departure will be an enormous loss, Chris was very important for us,” De Boer told De Telegraaf
“We always have work in a good way. Players who are that good and also the ideal professional are, for a coach, the most ideal players.”
Asked if he thought Eriksen would succeed in England, De Boer said: “It would surprise me if that won’t happen.”
