Fabrizio Romano has dropped an update on the future of reported Tottenham Hotspur transfer target Christian Eriksen.
In a recent article for Caught Offside, the Italian journalist and transfer insider confirmed that, following recent reports linking Antonio Conte’s side with a move to bring the central midfielder back to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the summer transfer window, Spurs are indeed keeping tabs on the 30-year-old ahead of a potential swoop.
However, Romano went on to state that, as yet, Fabio Paratici is yet to make contact with the Denmark international regarding a deal to bring him back to north London, while the journalist also revealed that Leicester City and one other unnamed Premier League club are also interested in the midfielder this summer.
Considering just how impressive Eriksen has been for Brentford following his return to English football this January, Romano’s update that Conte and Paratici are plotting a deal to bring the Dane back to the club this summer is sure to be news that the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium faithful will love.
Indeed, over his eight Premier League appearances for Thomas Frank’s side, the £13.5m-rated Dane has been in exceptional form, scoring one goal, providing two assists and creating four big chances for his teammates, as well as making an average of 2.1 key passes, taking 2.0 shots and completing 0.8 dribbles per game.
These returns have seen the 30-year-old average a quite astonishing SofaScore match rating of 7.51, not only ranking him as Brentford’s best performer in the top flight of English football but also as the third-best player in the division as a whole – behind only Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold and Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne.
As such, the suggestion that Tottenham are one of the clubs interested in a deal for the midfielder this summer is undoubtedly incredibly exciting news for all involved with Spurs, and, when taking into account that he looks set to be available on a free transfer, it would certainly be yet another Paratici masterclass if the sporting director can get a deal over the line.
