The Daily Mail have claimed that several Premier League clubs are showing interest in snapping up former Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen as a free agent.

Eriksen had an ICD device fitted on his heart after suffering a cardiac arrest in Denmark’s Euro 2020 clash against Finland in June.

With rules in Italy stating that players with an ICD device cannot play professionally in the country, the Dane reached an agreement with Inter Milan to terminate his contract last month.

It then emerged that the former Spurs man was training on his own at Danish club Odense Boldklub, for whom he played as a youngster.

The Mail have revealed that Eriksen is now training at Swiss club Chiasso which is an hour’s drive away from his home in Milan. 

The report states that the midfielder expects to be training with a top-flight team this month ahead of a potential return to action.

It is explained that clubs from England, Holland and Denmark have expressed ‘strong interest’ in signing the 29-year-old. 

The report further adds that the midfielder is currently having discussions with several clubs over making a return to competitive football.

Eriksen’s agent Martin Schoots told The Mail: “It is going really well for Christian. He had all the checks just before Christmas and the results were so good that we expect him to be involved in a group training with a team some time later in January.

“But I would prefer Christian to talk about this himself and he will do so very soon.”

I have my doubts over whether any of the top-flight clubs in Europe’s best leagues would sign Eriksen as they might view it as too big of a risk. I suspect the Dane will likely sign for an Eredivisie or a Danish club but should he prove himself there, a return to a top club in the future cannot be ruled out.
