Tottenham have bolstered their squad significantly this summer, but as shown in the three games Spurs have played in the Premier League this season, they have been lacking creativity.
New signing Christian Eriksen could be the answer to Tottenham's woes as the 21-year-old Danish international has been dubbed to be 'the perfect number 10' by Andre Villas-Boas.
The Dane joined Spurs in a reported £11.5million switch from Dutch club Ajax. Eriksen had refused to sign a new contract with the club, causing strong speculation of a move away. A host of top clubs including Liverpool, Bayer Leverkusen, Zenit and AC Milan were all said to be keen on his signature.
Tottenham's loss against Arsenal strongly portrayed Tottenham's lack of going forward and creativity as Eriksen watched on. The Dane's paper work was not cleared in time for him to play in the north London derby, but he will available for selection in the next fixture.
Eriksen will add a creativity dimension to the side and may finally fill the void left by former Tottenham playmaker Luka Modric, who departed for Spanish giants Real Madrid last summer.
According to reports, manager Andre Villas-Boas commented: “He’s a wonderful creative player, A great solution to our number ten position.
“We’ll have great competition in that position as well, with Lewis (Holtby) doing extremely well in the week against Tbilisi, so our idea is to create a very strong squad that competes to be in the team.”
