Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri admits he would prefer to sign Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen ahead of Harry Kane.
Chelsea are looking to extend their unbeaten run when they face Spurs at Wembley on Saturday evening.
But Sarri claims he would rather have Eriksen in his side.
Of course Harry Kane is the best English striker in the moment, so a very important player, but if I have to say another name, I like very much Eriksen, said the Chelsea manager.
Why? Because he is a very smart player, a very technical player. Hes able to play in midfield and, at the same moment, score eight or nine goals in a season.
I think that he is a very important player.
I like him very much, but I dont want to talk about a player of Tottenham for the market, of course. I only answered a [hypothetical] question.
