Alasdair Gold has revealed that Tottenham Hotspur will monitor Christian Eriksen’s progress until the end of the season and added that the North London club also hold an interest in his compatriot Mikkel Damsgaard.
Eriksen has impressed on his return to competitive action following his cardiac arrest during the European Championship last summer.
The 30-year-old has not only performed well for Brentford but he also found the back of the net in Denmark’s clashes against Netherlands and Serbia on his return to international football.
Antonio Conte hinted last month that he would be open to the prospect of the midfielder completing a fairytale return to Spurs in the summer (StadiumAstro).
Meanwhile, Damgaard was linked with a move to Tottenham last summer after his heroics in the European Championship (Evening Standard).
The winger stayed put at Sampdoria but the 21-year-old has been out of action for the majority of this campaign with a thigh injury.
Gold has now suggested that Spurs could explore re-signing Eriksen and the North Londoners also continue to have an eye on Damsgaard ahead of the summer.
The journalist said on his YouTube channel: “Eriksen, I think Spurs will be looking at how he plays, certainly. It depends whether you’re one of these people who thinks never go back. We’ll see with Eriksen, we’ll see where it goes.
“It would be a different Eriksen to the one that left Tottenham. It would be someone that is obviously far more experienced and gone away and won more stuff. Conte knows him well. He’ll be a player they look at.
“I know there’s a little bit of interest in Damsgaard as well. I think there’ll be a lot of interest in him as well.”
Spurs Web Opinion
If Eriksen continues playing as well as he is now, then Spurs will likely be tempted, especially given that he could be available for free. However, someone like Damsgaard would be more in line with the club’s project, given that we are rebuilding for the future.
