Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold has now shared a behind-the-scenes Christian Eriksen transfer update for Lilywhites supporters.
The Lowdown: Spurs in mix…
Leave current club Brentford on a Bosman deal at the end of this month as things stand, the 30-year-old is currently set to be one of the big name free agents up for grabs.
His fairy-tale return to the grass after suffering a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 serves as a timely reminder of the beautiful game’s magic at times with Spurs now discussing a blockbuster reunion.
The Latest: Gold makes behind-scenes Eriksen claim…
Backing these reports, Gold says that the Lilywhites have indeed ‘discussed’ re-signing Eriksen with the move potentially ticking a ‘lot of boxes’ for Conte.
He explained (via football.london):
“Spurs have discussed bringing Christian Eriksen back and for someone who is a free agent, has worked with Conte before, knows the club inside out and has looked back to his old self in recent months, he ticks a lot of boxes. For the Dane though, he will have plenty of offers and he may well feel loyalty to Brentford for taking the chance on him after his recovery from his cardiac arrest.”
The Verdict: Get it done…
For zero transfer cost, the north Londoners could seal a return for a ‘very special’ player in the eyes of supporters whilst also landing a proven attacking threat.
According to WhoScored, the Denmark international legend finished 2021/2022 as Thomas Frank’s highest rated player per 90 whilst also managing to rack up the largest number of key passes per 90 for them in England’s top flight.
Eriksen clearly still has plenty to offer in the final third and we believe he could be a real snip for Conte.
Who should be Tottenham's next signing after Perisic?
