According to RMC Sport (as relayed by GFFN), Tottenham Hotspur, Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan may be set for a three-way transfer merry-go-round, which could see Dele Alli leave Spurs and Christian Eriksen return to the club.

This is not the first report to suggest that Eriksen could replace Alli at Spurs, with Gazzetta dello Sport claiming last week that Jose Mourinho wants to bring the Dane back to Tottenham amidst his struggles at Inter.

The report also claimed that Alli is keen on reuniting with Mauricio Pochettino at Paris Saint-Germain.

RMC Sport now report that those close to the England international believe that Spurs would be willing to sanction a loan deal for him this month.

However, for Alli to join PSG and Eriksen to return to North London, it is claimed that Leandro Paredes would have to swap Paris for Milan.

Although the Argentine is said to have no intention of leaving PSG, the report suggests that Antonio Conte is determined to persuade him to make the switch to the San Siro.

Spurs Web Opinion

This sounds like nothing more than agent talk. While I can see Alli potentially being allowed to leave on loan, I do not see why Mourinho would want to bring Eriksen back. Even if the Dane returns, he will likely have a bit-part role, as he currently does at Inter, rather than being a guaranteed starter.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. In all these rumours we have to remember we have too many foreign players now. A foreign player would have to leave to get one in. Dele Alli is English trained. Winks rumours, Winks is homegrown. We have in the Europa League Dier, Davies and Rodon who count as foreign players. As they were trained in Portugal and Wales. Another problem. I don’t think it’s realistic we would get Sabitzer until the summer, as also Leipzig are still in the Champions League. I will be surprised if much happens in January. Many clubs are skint due to no crowds.
