Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen believes midfielder Christian Eriksen could be one of the best Premier League players if he can continue his fine form of late, reports Sky
The two players were together with Dutch Eredivisie side Ajax before making the move to Tottenham, and Eriksen in particular has stood out over the last few weeks of his second season at White Hart Lane, scoring three goals in his last six games. Following his recent upturn in form, Vertonghen believes Eriksen could go right to the top.
“As a playmaker, I think he can be one of the best in the Premier League. I’ve played with him since he was 16 or 17. He’s improving every season. He shows now that he can score and get assists as well – and he’s a very hard worker,” said the Belgian.
