Christian Eriksen hopes to seal a sensational return to the Premier League by the end of the week, according to The Times.

Eriksen has been without a club since he left Inter Milan by mutual consent in December with Serie A rules not allowing the 29-year-old to play with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) (Yahoo).

Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest during Denmark’s opening game of Euro 2020 in June and received life-saving treatment on the pitch which later saw him fitted with an ICD, to help prevent potentially fatal cardiac arrests in the future.

Eriksen enjoyed six-and-a-half seasons at Tottenham Hotspur before moving to San Siro in January 2020 for a fee of £16.9million fee (Sky Sports) and helped his side to win the Serie A title last season.

Spurs boss Antonio Conte managed Eriksen during their time together at the San Siro and earlier this month offered the Dane the opportunity to return to North London to train at the club (BBC).

The report claims that the playmaker has received a number of approaches from Premier League teams and has set his sights on securing a place in the Denmark squad for the World Cup in November.

Eriksen earned over £200,000-a-week at Inter and it is said that money is not his priority when securing his next switch.

It will be great to see Eriksen back on the pitch and given the fact he is a free agent, together with the current lack of creativity, it would be brilliant to see him back in a Spurs shirt.

The nature of his departure could potentially prove to be a problem of whether the club wants to bring him back as a member of the squad, claiming in an interview in February of 2020 that he was the black sheep at Spurs over running down his contract (BBC).

  1. I’d rather see N’Dombele crawl around the pitch for the next 3 years than see Eriksen back in a Spurs shirt. He WANTED to leave. Never go back, especially when the player agitates for the move. Your memory is too short.
