Italian journalist, Massimo Marianella has expressed doubts as to whether Mauricio Pochettino wants to take Christian Eriksen to Paris Saint-Germain, insisting that the midfielder is not good enough for the French giants.

There has been plenty of speculation regarding the former Tottenham Hotspur star’s future over recent weeks after it became clear that Inter were looking to move him on just a year on from signing him.

A return to Spurs has also been mooted as a possibility for the Dane, with reports indicating that Jose Mourinho is ready to take him back (Gazzetta dello Sport).

Some Spurs fans on social media are divided over whether it would make sense to re-sign the former Ajax man.

CalcioMercato claimed last month that PSG could be the front-runners for the 28-year-old after the appointment of Pochettino.

However, Marianella has now expressed doubts as to whether a move to Paris is on the cards for Eriksen.

The journalist told Sky Sports Italia (as relayed by Inter News): “Mauricio Pochettino, in a press conference, said that any great player is welcome at PSG, and Eriksen falls into the category.

“I am a bit sceptical, because Pochettino struggled to find the position to Eriksen in his Tottenham.

“Then he found it, and he found a couple: he played behind the striker at times, more often behind the line of three behind Harry Kane was on the left. The mezzala has rarely made it.

“In my opinion, he is a player who, at the moment, in a team like this PSG, with Kylian Mbappé, Neymar and many other extraordinary players would struggle to find a stable position. I am also a sceptic.”

I do think that PSG could be considering Eriksen as an option since the French club are in a difficult financial situation and the Dane would be relatively cheap. However, I do not believe that Mourinho would want him back at Spurs as the 28-year-old is not really a good fit for the system we currently employ.
