Tottenham fans have identified the perfect Eriksen replacement

Tottenham fans have identified the perfect Eriksen replacement

Whilst most Tottenham fans were busy watching their team overcome Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday evening, it appears as though some supporters had their eyes on another tie – Real Madrid’s clash with Ajax.

Of course, that game offered undeniably the biggest shock of the Champions League so far, with Ajax, against all odds, beating Los Blancos 5-3 on aggregate.

However, it’s not the result that has caught the eye of many Tottenham fans. Rather, that honour goes to one of Ajax’s players – Hakim Ziyech.

Ajax’s number 22 had a starring role for his team on Tuesday, scoring a goal and otherwise contributing to much of what the Dutch outfit produced going forward, and it seems as though he’s impressed many a Tottenham fan.

Indeed, evidence of that can be seen over on Twitter. There, a handful of Tottenham fans have identified the attacking midfielder as an ideal signing, with some even suggesting that he’d be an ideal replacement for Christian Eriksen. Of course, Eriksen has recently (via the Mirror) been touted as Real Madrid’s first choice Premier League summer target. 

Generally speaking, they play in slightly different areas – with Ziyech adopting a role on the right, rather than the left, for much of the season, but with 9 assists and 10 goals in the league this term, he certainly offers a similar return to that of Eriksen. Either way, he’d be a popular replacement with a lot of Tottenham fans, it seems:

Tottenham fans – would he be a good replacement for Eriksen? Will Eriksen even leave?
