Tottenham Hotspur are confident that they will be able to re-sign Christian Eriksen this summer, however, two factors could hamper their hopes of a return, according to 90min.

The report claims that any hopes of the Dane heading back to north London could rest upon whether Antonio Conte is still at the club and whether they are able to secure a place in next season’s Champions League.

Tottenham occupy the final Champions League spot heading into this weekend’s fixtures on goal difference ahead of rivals Arsenal and will come up against Eriksen’s new side Brentford tomorrow evening looking to keep their hopes alive.

Conte has previous experience of working with Eriksen after the pair were part of Inter Milan’s Serie A success last season.

The Italian has already admitted how surprised he has been left by how well Eriksen’s return to the professional game has gone after he suffered a cardiac arrest while on international duty at Euro 2020 in June (Independent).

After a tough start to life under Conte at Inter, Eriksen flourished in the latter part of the season and will know exactly what it takes to play a key role for the demanding 52-year-old.

Champions League football could also be pivotal in helping to satisfy Harry Kane’s ambition and a happy striker is likely to send the right signals to Conte to continue his project at the club.

Nothing less than three points will do against the Bees tomorrow, hopefully, Eriksen does not roll back the years and seriously dent our European aspirations.
