Tottenham Hotspur star Dejan Kulusevski has just had his say on Christian Eriksen potentially returning to North London this summer.

The Dane spent six-and-a-half years as a Spurs player following his move from Ajax in 2013. He made over 300 appearances for Tottenham and played a big part in helping them reach the Champions League final too.

Eriksen then moved to Inter Milan in January 2020 to work under Antonio Conte. The two won the Scudetto there, but following what happened at the Euros last year, he had to leave Italy.

The 30-year-old joined Brentford in January and after getting back to full fitness, he showed the world exactly why was regarded as one of the best in the Premier League a few years ago. Now a free agent, Eriksen has been linked with a return to North London.

Dejan Kulusevski: Incredible Christian Eriksen is welcome to join Tottenham

Kulusevski only joined Tottenham in January, but he’s already a fan favourite. He has been a really fantastic signing, and Spurs need a few more quality additions like him.

Eriksen is definitely one such player, and Kulusevski was asked about the prospect of Spurs signing him this summer. His reply tells us he’d love to share the dressing room with the Dane next season.

He told Fotbollskanalen: “He is most welcome.

“He’s an incredible player and a fantastic person as well. I know him a little from before.”

TBR View:

One of Tottenham’s priorities this summer is a new midfielder who can progress the ball forward and have an impact in the final third. Conte has nobody like that at the moment, and Eriksen checks a lot of boxes.

The Dane has already proven that he can be a world-class player for both Tottenham and under Conte. The prospect of combining the two would be incredible this summer, and the fact that he’ll be available on a free transfer makes him a low-risk signing as well.

Spurs have been heavily linked with a move for Eriksen, and we can’t really imagine the Dane turning down a return to North London – especially as they’re now back in the Champions League.

A move could well happen in the coming weeks, and if it does, it would be fantastic.
