Some Spurs fans think they already have Eriksen replacement at N17 in 20-year-old
A number of Spurs fans have been discussing how Bryan Gil could potentially be the club’s successor to Christian Eriksen.
Tottenham sold Eriksen in January 2020 and, truth be told, they haven’t managed to replace him yet.
Spurs have been lacking a creative source since then, and this was evident against Crystal Palace last time out.
And with Tanguy Ndombele’s uncertain future, Tottenham could potentially lose another creative outlet next year.
But Gil’s arrival at Spurs has energised the fanbase, who reckon he could be a future superstar.
Admittedly, the 20-year-old is a winger by trade, while Eriksen mostly plies his trade centrally.
That said, the Dane has often played on the flanks during his career, and he’d drift inside towards centre.
Could Gil be given similar licence, or perhaps even be deployed at No. 10 outright?
After all, he’s a young player, and minor positional changes aren’t unheard of amongst senior players.
The prospect of the Spaniard potentially becoming the new Eriksen is one that appeals to quite a few Spurs fans:
Agree. If there’s an actual rebuild he needs to play every week. Maybe he won’t succeed directly, but he needs to adapt and grow into it.— Lars Korneliusson (@Larsa16) September 13, 2021
Right now, we fans have the patience for that. Hopefully it will pay off and we’ll rise again.

I have an idea, swap him for Dele🧐— Franciux (@Franciux1) September 13, 2021
Probably needs to be thrown in soon than later— shaun lewis (@shaunle61197008) September 13, 2021
Different yes but he’ll create a high volume of chances and eventually become our chief chance creator, replacing eriksen if you get me. Although its possible Gil plays 10 they’re assessing him right now where best he fits— Zeus⚡️ (@Zeus1882x) September 13, 2021
