Opinion: Judging whether or not Christian Eriksen should return to Tottenham

Following a hugely disappointing year in Italy reports have revealed that Christian Eriksen wants a return to the Premier League and Jose Mourinho wants him back, albeit on loan.

A six-month loan is the best deal for all parties. It gets Spurs that creative spark in the final third, gets a portion of Eriksen’s wages off Inter Milan’s books, and gives the Dane the chance to prove to the world and himself that he is still an exceptional player.

Six months is also the best option because, as of now, Spurs have little money to spend and Mourinho himself revealed that he does not expect any signings this window.

Therefore Spurs can not sign a quality player for the long term, someone like Marcel Sabitzer, who has been linked to the North London club.

However, if Spurs could bring in Eriksen on a short-term deal, it would open up the option for them to go back in for Sabitzer in the summer window after collecting prize money from the numerous competitions the club is fighting in this season.

Eriksen would be the perfect addition to the club as they desperately lack a third source of goals in the squad following Dele Alli’s banishment from the side.

When the opposition attempts to lock down Harry Kane and Heung-min Son, it prevents the entire Spurs team from being able to create.

If Eriksen was introduced into this squad it would add another element for the defence to worry about, opening up more space for Kane and Son in the process.

As long as Christian Eriksen comes back to play for the badge, Spurs rivals should look out. Having said that, if the Danish international returns with the same attitude he showed in his final season at the club, he will find himself in the reserves alongside Dele.

The decision will ultimately come down to whether or not Daniel Levy and Mourinho think that a deal for the 28-year-old is what’s best for the club.

The fan inside me would love to see the Great Dane come back to the Lilywhite of Tottenham, providing that he is prepared to graft to earn back the affections of the faithful supporters.
