Tottenham manager Antonio Conte has made a major transfer decision involving former Spurs star and current midfield target Christian Eriksen, according to reports.
The Lowdown: Reunion on the cards?
As per a recent report by The Telegraph, after the 52-year-old secured Champions League football for Spurs next season, the Lilywhites are set to offer the Italian six summer signings in a plea for him to stay in north London.
Transfer chief Fabio Paratici will apparently fly to Italy to hold talks with the manager over plans for the upcoming window, but according to a fresh claim by Football Insider, it appears that Conte has already made a big decision regarding the Denmark international, whom he managed at Inter.
The Latest: Conte green-lights Eriksen move…
According to Football Insider, the Tottenham manager has ‘sanctioned a move’ for Eriksen this summer as his contract with current club Brentford nears its end.
The club have apparently ‘already been in contact’ over a potential agreement, while a source from the outlet explained that the 30-year-old ‘would be keen’ on a ‘sensational’ return to Spurs if a deal can be struck.
The Verdict: Promising update?
Going by this fresh update, it appears that a return for Eriksen to Tottenham could be growing increasingly likely.
We believe that N17 is a perfect landing spot for him given that Spurs can offer the midfielder Champions League football and a chance of working with a manager he knows well in Conte.
Having finished the season as Thomas Frank’s best player going by average match rating, all while making more key passes per 90 than any Bees player (WhoScored), it’s clear that Eriksen still possesses the creativity to be an asset at Hotspur Way.
Pontus Jansson summed up his team-mate’s pedigree by branding him a ‘superstar‘, and that perhaps highlights why Conte and co are interested in landing the ex-Spurs star on a Bosman deal.
