Christian Eriksen arrived amidst much fanfare from Ajax back in 2013. He was purchased from the money generated due to the Gareth Bale transfer. The Dane went on to register 69 goals and 89 assists in 305 appearances and saw the likes of Real Madrid, Juventus and Barcelona covet his signature. He also led Tottenham to the UEFA Champions League final last season.

Christian Eriksen was one of the 'Magnificent Seven' who joined Spurs to replace Gareth Bale. The other six were - Paulinho (now playing in the CSL), Nacer Chadli (at Anderlecht FC), Vlad Chiriches (on loan from Napoli at Sassuolo), Roberto Soldado (playing in LaLiga for Granada), Etienne Capoue (playing for Watford in the Premier League) and Erik Lamela who is still with Tottenham. The Argentinian has 16 goals from 143 appearances in what has been an injury-laden spell in North London.
