There has been a mixed response on social media with regards to reports that Tottenham Hotspur tried to re-sign Christian Eriksen during the summer transfer window.
Eriksen has failed to make the impact he would have hoped for since his move to Inter Milan in January and has once again found himself struggling for game time at the start of this season (transfermarkt.com).
There were reports on deadline day that Antonio Conte’s side had offered the 28-year-old on loan to several Premier League clubs, including Spurs (Football Insider).
Fabrizio Romano has since revealed that Tottenham did enquire about the possibility of re-signing the Dane on loan back in June but the Nerrazuri had no interest in letting him leave on a temporary basis (Here We Go podcast via The Express).
The midfielder has since admitted his frustration at the lack of game time at the San Siro (Daily Mail).
Some Spurs fans admitted that they would welcome Eriksen back with open arms but others insisted that they would not take him back after the way he refused to sign a contract and pushed for a move away from North London.
As much as I’m critical of Eriksen’s last 18 months at Spurs, I’d welcome him back.

I respect Eriksen but HE wanted to leave. I hope he works it out at Inter but I we’ve moved on as a club so idk why some fans want him back. He just left so you think he wants to come back? And if he does would his heart be in it! I don’t think so

Why do some of you want Eriksen back? Great servant for the club but he is literally finished and wouldn’t start for us

You all want Eriksen back but not Trippier? Mad.

He wanted to leave, he left.
Move on, why do you want him back?
Respect his career decision as it's his wish to join whoever he wants.
Just because he's struggling at Inter, doesn't mean we should bring him back.
He probably doesn't even want to come back. pic.twitter.com/3UIfTZ3KPa

Does anyone want Eriksen back? I didn't enjoy watching him mope around the pitch towards the end.. what would be different?

Spurs Web Opinion
I firmly belong to the camp who believe that it would be a bad idea to re-sign Eriksen, not because I am upset at the way things ended for him at Spurs. It was certainly understandable why someone would want a new challenge after six years at a club. However, I do not think the signing would make sense from a footballing point of view, given the number of attacking midfield options we have. There are also some question marks over Eriksen’s mentality and he certainly seemed to lack desire on the pitch in his final 12 months at Spurs.
Have something to tell us about this article?
