Barcelona linked with Danish star midfielder

One of new Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova’s first signings could be Ajax’s young Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen, according to media reports from Spain.

Barcelona based sports dailies El Mundo Deportivo and ‘Sport’ both carry details of the possible transfer, with the Dutch club reportedly seeking a 25m euro transfer fee.

There is a suggestion that Barca will counter this with a 20m euro offer plus Cristian Tello on a season long loan, which may explain why Atletico Madrid failed in their attempt to sign the young winger on a similar basis earlier this week.

The 20-year-old Eriksen has lit up the Eredivisie this season with a string of outstanding performances, but his high price tag may yet scare off ‘los azulgrana’, given that their priorities this summer in the transfer market are a left back and central defender.

The club appear to be on the verge of filling one of those holes with the signing of Jordi Alba from Valencia.

    Midfielder is not priority for Barcelona Tito should go for FALCAO and is FALCAO nobody else. He has all what it takes to perform or surpass eto’o. Villa should allow to go, for GOD sake !!! I don t foresee ALBA will do any good than Andriano. Bale is Ok. At central defence, pique, mascherano, puyol and two promotion from team B will be ok. Montoya and Tello also be promote though Tello is not playing in barca’s way. Fabragas must improve Tito most closely watching him. Villa and Ibrahim afllay should be sold. My decision is purely football. Pls comment further.
