Tottenham could potentially be keen on a return for Christian Eriksen this January, although Football.London claims numerous ‘hurdles’ are holding any deal up.
On an almost daily basis, a new report emerges about Eriksen and a potential return to Spurs, just 12 months after he left for Inter Milan.
The Dane has struggled in Italy and is said to keen on orchestrating a move away. However, any move back to Tottenham is going to prove difficult, with Football.London claiming a number of issues remain.
As well as having a full 25-man squad already and players within that already not getting in like Dele Alli and Gedson Fernandes, the report also claims Jose Mourinho is not fully sold on the idea of an Eriksen return.
The other issue for Spurs is that they’ve seen with Gareth Bale that returns for former heroes doesn’t always go too well. That is said to be in their thoughts, as is the main issue – according to the report – of the amount of foreign players in the current squad.
For now, then, it seem Eriksen might find a return to the Premier League most difficult.
TBR View: Too much messing for little reward?
There’s no denying the talent Eriksen has. Nor is there any denying the impact he had at the club last time.
But that was then, and Mourinho needs to be about the here and now. Eriksen would need time to bed back in and sadly, some players simply lose a step or two at some points, which might have happened here.
At his best, he’d be a good addition. But if there’s any risk Spurs won’t see his best, then they’ll perhaps avoid this one.
