Gabriel Agbonlahor believes a return to Tottenham Hotspur could be on the cards for Christian Eriksen this summer on the back of the Dane’s recent performances for Brentford.

Less than 12 months after suffering a cardiac arrest in Denmark’s Euro 2020 clash against Finland, Eriksen has resumed his professional career in the most physically demanding league in world football.

The 30-year-old has made three appearances for the Bees since signing a six-month contract with Thomas Franck’s side in January (Tranfermarkt).

Eriksen has already shown glimpses of his vision and technical quality that made him one of the best attacking midfielders in the Premier League during his time at Spurs.

The midfielder has also been recalled to Denmark’s squad for their upcoming friendlies against Netherlands and Serbia. 

Antonio Conte, who worked with the Brentford man at Inter Milan, hinted last month that he would be open to the idea of the player returning to Spurs (Stadium Astro).

When asked if a return to Tottenham could be on the cards for Eriksen, Agbonlahor told Football Insider: “He could do.

“All he’s got to do at the moment is keep performing, keep those performance levels up. I’m sure Brentford will want to take it easy with him as well.

“He’s back in the Denmark squad now. I’m sure he won’t rule anything out in the summer.

“Every door will be open for him because he’s still a quality player. It’s crazy how he’s come back this quickly.”

I am over the moon at how well Eriksen has done on his return to professional football. If he keeps progressing over the coming months and puts in the same level of performances, perhaps a romantic return to Spurs could become a reality in the summer, particularly given that the Dane could be available on a free transfer.
