Tottenham Hotspur could reportedly sign a Champions League winner to replace Christian Eriksen in January.
Eriksen has been constantly linked with Real Madrid but a move failed to materialise in the summer transfer window. The Dane is out of contract at the end of this season which leaves Tottenham with just one window to make any money off of his sale.
Zinedine Zidane’s side are top of the league, two points ahead of Barcelona, but their performances haven’t exactly been worthy of the leaders. Signing a player of Eriksen could give them a massive boost in January to push on and beat their fierce rivals for the title for the first time since the 2016/17 season.
Spurs, on the other hand, have struggled so far this season and Mauricio Pochettino has been reluctant to start Eriksen every week. The 27-year-old has started just six of Tottenham’s 11 games in all competitions so far and that has clearly not helped anybody.
Selling Eriksen in January would be the logical option if he fails to agree to a new deal by then and Isco would be a very good replacement. The Spaniard, when played regularly, can have a similar impact to Eriksen and if he comes in as a part of the deal which would see Eriksen head to Madrid, Tottenham will have got the better deal.
Isco has missed six games so far this season due to injury and has played just 104 minutes of football so far. Zidane clearly does not see the Spaniard ahead of the likes of Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Casemeiro while Federico Valverde has also climbed up the pecking order.
Isco would thrive under a manager like Pochettino and the Argentine himself will struggle to find a better replacement for Eriksen than the Real Madrid man. With four Champions Leagues and a La Liga crown to his name, Isco is a proven winner and he could be exactly what Spurs need to end their trophy drought.
