Tottenham Hotspur could be set to find out whether or not they will be welcoming back Christian Eriksen to north London this summer.
Speaking on a recent edition of the Que Golazo Podcast, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano had his say on the matter of Eriksen’s immediate future.
The journalist said: “Christian Eriksen has three proposals on the table, one from Brentford, one from Tottenham and one from Manchester United. So he’s going to decide in the coming days.”
In 2013, Spurs signed the midfielder from Ajax in a deal worth £11.5m. In 304 appearances for the Lilywhites, the Denmark international scored 69 goals and delivered 90 assists before joining Inter Milan in January 2020.
To further highlight how useful he was for Thomas Frank’s side, he ended the campaign with a higher rate of shot-creating actions per 90 minutes (5.08) than any other Bees player to make more than one appearance in the league. The Danish playmaker also delivered 30 crosses, won 10 tackles and made 10 interceptions during his time in west London.
Taking into account what he did for Tottenham, and for Brentford more recently, it’s safe to say that potentially seeing Eriksen make a return to the north London club would be a very exciting prospect for Spurs supporters.
With the Lilywhites reportedly being one of the options available to the 30-year-old in terms of where he’ll be playing next season, according to Romano, this suggests that the recruitment staff in N17 feel as though he would be a good fit in the squad once again.
Having already experienced what it’s like to play under Antonio Conte when the duo were at Inter togeether, it would be interesting to see how the midfielder would fare under the Italian’s management once again if he does choose to go back to Tottenham.
