Leicester City made an enquiry to take Christian Eriksen on loan this month, but The Telegraph has suggested that they have ended their interest with Inter Milan wanting all of the Tottenham Hotspur-linked Dane’s £300,000-a-week wages covered.
Eriksen will be allowed to leave the Nerazzurri this month. He has been a peripheral figure for Antonio Conte’s men this season.
That has prompted a couple of clubs to look into offering the 28-year-old the chance to return to the Premier League.
The Telegraph reports that the Foxes were one of the teams to make an enquiry. However, Inter’s desire to have all of his £300,000-a-week wages covered have put Brendan Rodgers’s men off.
The report notes that Spurs have been linked with Eriksen. Calciomercato recently claimed that Jose Mourinho is keen to bring him back to North London.
It was reported that Tottenham are the only club Inter would demand a loan fee from. And The Telegraph has also suggested that that would be the case.
TBR View: Spurs return seems even more unlikely unless Inter’s demands change
It is really difficult to see any club committing to paying all of Eriksen’s eye-watering wages this month. Of course, on his day, there are few players with more talent.
However, he has struggled since arriving at San Siro. And it should not be forgotten that he was not in the best form before his move to Milan either.
So Spurs will surely follow Leicester’s lead should Inter’s demands remain the same.
