David Sullivan can finally deliver on his London Stadium promise by luring Inter Milan midfielder Christian Eriksen to West Ham United in January.
Inter Milan are expected to allow Eriksen to secure a move away from the San Siro this winter having failed to establish himself at the club and, should he fancy a reunion with the English top-flight, the Irons will put themselves forward with an official bid.
Eriksen has started just four fixtures across all competitions this season with former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte often happy to overlook the 28-year-old, who is without a goal or assist thus far this term.
The Denmark international struggled to find his feet in Italy during his maiden campaign, either, with Eriksen striking home only four times and contributing three assists after leaving north London with a hand in 158 career Tottenham goals (69 scored, 89 assisted).
Mauricio Pochettino once lauded Eriksen as a “special” talent during his time in charge at White Hart Lane, where the 103-cap wonder was nicknamed the “screamer” for being capable of scoring “unbelievable goals”.
Sullivan can finally deliver on the promise he made to West Ham supporters 10-years ago if the Irons co-owner and Chairman is able to lure Eriksen to the club this winter, as he has forever described the move to the London Stadium as a decision which could lead to signings like this.
Sullivan told supporters back in January 2010 that he believed moving away from Upton Park and to the site of the London 2012 Olympics would allow West Ham to turbo-charge revenues and reach another level like Manchester City after their change of ground following the Commonwealth Games.
But Irons fans are yet to see the proof as rather than compete with Man City for European places, the east London side have often been fighting off the threat of relegation with a seventh-place finish in 2015/16 their highest result since 2001/02.
Big-name players like Dimitri Payet did not stick around for long either, as the star of the 2015/16 campaign departed just a year later after seeing the Hammers crash out of the Europa League in the qualifying stages after defeat to Romanian side Astra Giurgiu.
With West Ham currently on course to challenge for their best finish to a Premier League season since moving to the London Stadium, Eriksen – and his Champions League experience – could be the one to get them over the line and back into Europe.
