Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen has reportedly been on the transfer radar of Barcelona, but it looks like the Spanish giants are focusing elsewhere now this summer.

The La Liga club do have the Spurs attacking midfielder as a potential target, but now consider Chelsea’s Eden Hazard as a priority signing over him, according to Spanish publication Marca.

According to a previous report from Spanish media outlet Don Balon, Barcelona were lining up a £79million offer for Eriksen.

Spurs fans will be boosted to hear the 26-year-old is not being prioritised by Barcelona due to their pulling power, having taken great players from the Premier League before such as Philippe Coutinho and Thierry Henry.

Eriksen is a vital part of Mauricio Pochettino’s side, scoring 14 goals and supplying 13 assists in all competitions.
