Christian Eriksen is fully focused on Tottenham and is happy to leave transfer speculation to others.

The Dane has been in sparkling form this term and has been one of the key catalysts behind Spurs' red hot run to within four points of Chelsea at the top of the Premier League.

Such form has seen the 25-year-old linked with a number of top European clubs most notably Barcelona.

But Eriksen's agent, Martin Schoots, says his client is concentrating on Tottenham and only Tottenham.

“I prefer not to comment on what the newspapers write about the future," he told Danish newspaper BT. "The only thing Christian wants to do is focus on playing his matches.

“We let the rumours be rumoured, even now, when Christian’s merits as a player who sets up a goal are better than anyone else, and now he scores also very important goals.

“Christian just wants to be important for the team, it is the only thing that matters to him.”

Eriksen's former manager Frank de Boer, whom he played under while at Ajax, believes the midfielder has everything you need to make it to the very top.

“I think he can have a wonderful career. First Ajax, then Tottenham and then the highest level," he said.

“I think he’s ready for a step higher. He has all that a Barcelona player must have. He has an overview, he has a working ethic, and he kicks well with both legs.”
