According to an update from reliable Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold, ‘some within’ the club would like to see former star Christian Eriksen return to north London amid claims the Lilywhites are indeed keen on re-signing the Dane, with Gold oing on to say that the player’s agent has ‘made contact‘ with Spurs among other sides.
Eriksen has been heavily touted with a potential return to Tottenham recently, with reliable journalists like Gianluca Di Marzio claiming that the club are eager for a loan deal (via sempreinter.com).
Should Spurs re-sign Eriksen?
Yes, bring him home
No, wouldn't fit in our team
Alasdair Gold shares Eriksen update
Fabrizio Romano also recently stated that manager Jose Mourinho would be open to Eriksen making a north London return, almost a year after his unceremonious departure to Inter Milan (Twitter).
In an update on the situation, stating ‘as I understand it‘ on Twitter, football.london correspondent Gold supported some of these claims – backing up Di Marzio’s revelation that Spurs could be keen on the idea by saying ‘some within‘ would like to see a reunion.
He has also supported another claim from the Sky Sports Italia journalist, who stated that the 28-year-old’s agent has been offered to various clubs in England, with Gold going one step further by revealing that Spurs have indeed been contacted by Eriksen’s representatives.
However, while these could be promising updates, the reporter also threw some cold water on the rumours by revealing that a potential move for the Serie A midfielder is littered with problems.
Transfer Tavern take
The biggest issue, by some way, appears to be the maxed out number of foreign players already at Spurs, with Mourinho already having a full 25-man squad and no room for incomings as it stands (football.london).
Even the potential departure of Dele Alli would not solve this issue as he is homegrown, so even if the England international were to depart for Paris-Saint Germain this month, Eriksen couldn’t fill his slot as he is a foreign star.
While there may be too many hurdles in the way to get it done, Gold refused to completely rule it out, but Spurs may have to do a lot of squad trimming before entertaining the idea.
