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.

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?

  1. I believe that Ericksen received poor advice and counsel from his “friends” and “hangers on” who wanted to try to “cash in on his success
    ‘. It was a sad state of affairs as they continued to trash Tottenham and “advise” him not to sign a new contract. That cost this young man a huge amount of money over the past two years. If he was coming back; I’d like to know if he has figured out who his friends were.

  2. I’d welcome back Eriksen in a heartbeat, and so would teammates like Alli and Kane!
    He did himself and Spurs no favours in his final 18 months, and he was a berk for
    winding his contract down by underperforming, because it cost him his dream move
    to bigger clubs than Inter. It was also disgraceful that Spurs were unable to get a
    decent fee for a player who would have attracted close to £100m from the likes of
    Barca, PSG and Real 3 years ago! And the fact that Spurs missed having Eriksen’s
    best football (since he scored that vital goal to beat Inter at Wembley in late 2018) is also a disgrace.
    BUT! .. having said all that, the prodigal son should be allowed a return, and forgiveness
    from the faithful. Besides, where are we going to find a proven top final third creator like
    Eriksen?? Despite our squad depth we haven’t got a player like him, and truthfully, we
    need him as much as he (right now) needs us again! We’ll also get the old Eriksen back,
    not the one who kicked his heels in his final season and a half.

  3. I had no problem with the way he left , but wished we had sold him long before that. Eriksen was and is to some people massively overrated. We are way better without him. Who’s position would he take right now ?? He would still be on the bench . He messes team structure up because he pretends to cover a man but never has any intention of competing for a ball. That pulls guys out of position constantly and he would have been more usefull not acting and just not running back at all or pulling out of any challenge less than 70-30 % in his favor. Why does Harry already have 6 assists? Because we didn’t have to go through the actor. Conte figured him out right away and knew they had bought a dud. Why do you think they were the only ones who would take him. Also remember if he was that good why do you think Spurs got him for 12 million pounds, he was not an unknown. All of the other clubs did not want him, they already knew he was a pure luxury player.

    I sincerely hope nobody at the club would even be considering getting that fake footballer back
