Report: Tottenham ‘certainly’ interested in Spanish playmaker

Tottenham Hotspur may be in the market for a new playmaker this summer, especially if Christian Eriksen seals his big-money move.

Eriksen revealed to the Danish press that he is looking for a step up and a new challenge for next season (Ekstra Bladet).

Real Madrid had been tipped to sign the playmaker, but recent reports indicate that they are no longer interested, with Paul Pogba being a preferred alternative (Telegraph).

Whether or not Tottenham spend big on a new attacking midfielder could depend heavily on whether Eriksen stays or goes, and how much they get for him if he leaves.

However, one player who has been linked as a replacement is Real Madrid’s Isco, with Football London stating Spurs would ‘certainly’ be interested.

Real Madrid are said to want around £71m for the Spaniard (AS), which could be too steep for Daniel Levy unless some kind of swap deal for Eriksen is reached.

Spurs Web Opinion:

I would never turn down a move for Isco, as long as Spurs got him at the right price. He looks good every time I watch him and would surely improve as a first-team regular at a big club. However, I just can’t see Tottenham spending £70m on him, unfortunately.
