White Hart Lane star should be high up on Stamford Bridge wish-list.

The Danish press claim in-form Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen could be set to leave White Hart Lane and if this is indeed the case then Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho would do well to make an offer for the Danish international.

The 22 year old has been a consistent success since moving to north London in August 2013 but has seen his side change manager on multiple occasions and move no nearer to cracking the top four and as such the former Ajax man may well be looking to secure a move to a side who can offer him Champions League football.

Mourinho likes to play three creative midfielders behind his lead striker, that man currently being Diego Costa, and currently most frequently uses Eden Hazard, Oscar and Willian but arguably their is room for improvement.

Willian is by no means a poor performer, and is certainly more effective than rivals for his spot, Andre Schurrle and Mohamed Salah, but Eriksen offers far more.

Eriksen can play on the left flank or in a central role but is adaptable enough to feature pretty much anywhere across the final third and should be a player Mourinho should be placing on his wish-list.

Mourinho may feel that the versatility that both Eriksen and Hazard, who can play on either flank, possess could help him form a more flowing attacking unit.

If Chelsea come calling one would imagine Eriksen would have his head turned and a big bid may tempt Daniel Levy into selling, especially if Spurs fail to secure a Champions League berth.

Tottenham paid just £11m for Eriksen so a double-your-money bid would surely be considered, especially if the player were to make it clear such a move interested him.

14 goals and nine assists in 44 Premier League appearances is a very healthy return for a Tottenham side that has on the whole been woefully inconsistent over the past 18 months, imagine how much more he could create in a Chelsea side that has been so dominant this season.
