Tottenham: Alasdair Gold drops Christian Eriksen claim

Tottenham: Alasdair Gold drops Christian Eriksen claim -Tottenham Hotspur News

In a Q&A for football.london, reliable journalist Alasdair Gold has dropped a fresh claim about the future of former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen, amid the latest rumours linking him with a return to Spurs.

The Lowdown: Eriksen’s career so far

The Denmark international arrived at Hotspur Way in the summer of 2013 after making the move from Dutch side Ajax. The 30-year-old spent six-and-a-half years in north London, where he amassed more than 300 appearances and 159 goal contributions for the club before leaving for Italian outfit Inter Milan.

However, Eriksen’s career in Serie A was suddenly cut short when the Dane was not allowed to play in the division after suffering a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020, which required a cardioverter-defibrillator implant device. As a result, the former Lilywhites playmaker was released by the Nerazzurri.

Despite this major setback, Eriksen made a sensational return to football after signing a short-term contract with Brentford in January.

The Latest: Gold’s claim on Eriksen

With the 30-year-old’s contract in west London set to expire at the end of June, rumours have arisen linking Eriksen with a stunning return to Tottenham.

In a Q&A for football.london, Gold was asked about the midfielder’s future, to which he responded: “As for Eriksen, it’s all down to him really and whether he feels loyalty to Brentford for taking that chance on him or that the pull of Spurs, Conte and the Champions League is stronger. There will be other interested parties although I understand he would like to remain in London.”

The Verdict: He’d be welcomed back

Considering Eriksen’s vast experience playing in a Lilywhites shirt, Antonio Conte would be getting a leader back in the Spurs dressing room if he were to sign the 30-year-old.

Having made 11 appearances for Brentford in the Premier League, the midfielder has had time to get back up to speed and familiarised with the intensity of the English top flight. Therefore, he should be able to come into Spurs’ team and make an instant impact.

Do you want Eriksen back at Spurs?

Yes, bring him back!

Yes, bring him back!

No, look elsewhere!

No, look elsewhere!

Whilst it is likely that he could favour remaining with Brentford, who gave him a route back into football after the horror of 2021, there is still a chance that Eriksen could return to Tottenham, which would be a marvellous signing on a free transfer for Conte, and one which would surely be welcomed by many of the N17 faithful.
