Christian Dannemann Eriksen (born 14 February 1992) is a Danish professional player who plays as an attacking midfielder for Serie A club Inter Milan and the Denmark national team.

Eriksen started playing football with local team Middelfart G&BK. In 2005, he joined Odense Boldklub youth team, where he attracted the attention of major European clubs. He eventually joined Ajax three years later. He was promoted to the senior team in January 2010, making his debut later in the same month in a league match against NAC Breda. At the end of his first professional season with the club, Eriksen had played 21 competitive matches, scoring one goal, and had made his international debut for Denmark. Eriksen has made breakthrough campaigns with Ajax, establishing himself as one of best young talents in Europe. During his spells in the Netherlands, he won three Eredivisie titles, a KNVB Cup title and a Johan Cruyff Shield title. He has also made several individual achievements and honours.

Eriksen continues his journey in football career by joining Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur for a reported fee of around £11.5 million. He was named in the PFA Team of The Year in 2017–18. He also helped Spurs to reach the final in 2018–19 UEFA Champions League, first time in history for Spurs. He made a total of 305 appearances with Spurs, scored 69 goals and made 89 assists. On 28 January 2020, he moved to Serie A side Inter Milan, signing a four-and-a-half-year contract.

Eriksen has represented Denmark at under-17, under-18, under-19 and under-21 levels. Eriksen received his first senior Denmark call-up in February 2010, making his debut in Denmark's friendly match against Austria in March, to become Denmark's fourth youngest full international, being the youngest debutant since Michael Laudrup. He became the youngest player to participate in the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
