The transfer window is now in full flow ahead of the new Premier League season with plenty of rumours surrounding comings and goings at Tottenham Hotspur.
Christian Eriksen’s future in North London is still somewhat up in the air after the Dane revealed days after the Champions League final defeat to Liverpool that he wants to leave to seek a new challenge (Ekstra Bladet).
With Real Madrid said to be still weighing up a move for Eriksen, it is easy for some fans to simply judge him on the last few months of last season when he was not at his best.
However, when you look at the stats from Opta there is no hiding place from just how influential Eriksen has been in a Spurs shirt.
Since the start of the 2016/2017 Premier League season, the 27-year-old came out on top of all players in the league when it comes to assists and chances created.
If Eriksen does head off to the Spanish capital, we will certainly have a huge void to fill when it comes to creating chances for his team mates.
