Nearly two months on from suffering a cardiac arrest, Christian Eriksen is set to return to Inter Milan next week to have medical checks in order to determine whether he could return to football.
The footballing world was left shocked when Eriksen collapsed during Denmark’s European Championship opener against Finland.
The medical staff on hand at the ground had to perform CPR on the former Spurs man and managed to resuscitate him using a defibrillator. The midfielder was then rushed to a hospital where he was able to make a full recovery.
Eriksen is set to undergo new and accurate heart checks at the club to determine the exact cause of his cardiac arrest.
Following the tests, Inter will decide what the next steps are and whether the midfielder can return to playing football.
Eriksen has had an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) inserted in his chest to regulate any further disturbances in his heartbeat.
The Italian FA had previously insisted the former Tottenham man would not be allowed to compete in the Serie A unless the device is removed.

Eriksen will be desperately hoping that the tests rule out any long-term issues and he is able to get back playing football. However, the chances of that do seem slim as neither the midfielder nor Inter will likely want to take a chance if there is even a slight risk involved.
