Speaking to Premier League Productions, former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has claimed that Tottenham will be ‘a real problem’ next season if they complete the signing of Christian Eriksen.
Eriksen’s return to Premier League football with Brentford FC has inspired the Bees to secure survival and more in their inaugural top-flight season.
With one goal and four assists in ten league starts for Thomas Frank’s men, the Danish international has been a resurrecting creative force in West London (TransferMarkt).
The attacking midfielder appeared over 300 times in his previous spell with Spurs, notching 69 goals and laying on 90 assists (TransferMarkt).
Tottenham are reportedly keen on bringing Eriksen back to N17 this summer and are even allegedly confident of it happening (90mins).
However, Spurs will likely face stiff competition for Eriksen’s services, with Thomas Frank hopeful of the Dane renewing his contract at Brentford (Daily Mail).
Wright believes that Eriksen is the missing piece of Antonio Conte’s puzzle and could help Spurs unlock more stubborn defences.
He said (Premier League Productions – 19/05/22 at 1:15 pm): “They need creativity in the midfield Tottenham. They need something.
“They need a Christian Eriksen-type of player who can knit that team together and then Tottenham are going to be a real problem for people.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Eriksen was a phenomenal player in his peak under Mauricio Pochettino at Spurs. He has shown that he still has the ability to split a defence and dictate a game at Brentford this season.
Although some Spurs fans may believe that we should be moving on from these players of our recent past, as he is available on a free this summer (Football.London) and he would provide a different dimension to Conte’s attack, it seems like a no-brainer to bring him home.
