Speaking on Monday to Sky Sports News’ Transfer Talk show, Fabrizio Romano provided a rather intriguing claim on Christian Eriksen’s possible move back to Tottenham Hotspur.
Speaking on Transfer Talk, transcribed by Sky Sports, Romano claimed that Eriksen ‘wants to leave Inter [Milan]’ this month and that the £31.5 million-rated midfielder would ‘love’ a move back to the Premier League, particularly to Spurs.
The journalist continued by stating that he was ‘sure’ Jose Mourinho’s side will ‘try’ for Eriksen ‘in the coming days’, although a move will not be easy due to the midfielder’s reported weekly wages of £229,000 at the Serie A side.
Romano also said that Inter are requesting that Tottenham ‘pay a fee for his loan’ if he were to join the club, as Antonio Conte’s side paid Spurs £24.3 million for the Denmark international just 12 months ago, as well as mentioning that there are ‘other clubs from the Premier League’ talking with Eriksen’s agents regarding a move.
Would Eriksen be a good signing?
Transfer Tavern Take
While it is true that Spurs could use the injection of a player who has racked up 110 goals and provided 157 assists over the course of his career, as Mourinho’s side have been heavily reliant on Harry Kane and Son Heung-min to both create and finish chances in the league this season, Eriksen has not exactly been in the best form of late, managing just four goals and three assists over his 40 appearances at Inter.
In addition to this, as Romano mentions, the 28-year-old’s wages in Milan would also appear to provide something of a stumbling block for a move to Spurs, as the club are already reportedly forking out a whopping £240,000 per week on their barely used loan signing, Gareth Bale.
