Tottenham's Vertonghen: Ajax ace Eriksen could play for any team

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen suggests Ajax young gun Christian Eriksen is capable of playing with any team in the world.

The Denmark international is being linked with a number of European sides regarding a potential January move and his former Ajax teammate has given a glowing appraisal of the 20-year olds potential.

"Technically he's one of the best players I've played with," Vertonghen told the Evening Standard. "He's right-footed and left-footed and he's always fit.

"Since he was 17 or 18 years old he's played every game for Ajax, he's never been injured, and I think when he gains a bit more physical strength then he can play in every team.

"I don't want to talk for him but he's a good player, and I think a good player can play here."
