Report: Tottenham remain most likely side to sign Christian Eriksen

Tottenham Hotspur still remain the side most likely to sign Christian Eriksen this summer, according to ESPN, amid reports that their interest in the Dane has cooled more recently.

Eriksen’s future remains uncertain. He is a free agent after a hugely successful spell with Brentford. And there are a host of clubs interested in signing him.

Tottenham have been linked. And obviously, Brentford would love to keep the 30-year-old. But Manchester United are also interested in the playmaker.

However, it seemed that Spurs may be pulling themselves out of the race. Alasdair Gold suggested that Tottenham have not followed up on their initial interest. And that has taken Eriksen’s camp by surprise.

But perhaps Tottenham may indeed have their sights set on Eriksen still. ESPN is now reporting that Spurs remain the side most likely to sign the attacking midfielder with his preference to stay in London.

Tottenham most likely to sign Eriksen

It makes a lot of sense for Tottenham to sign Eriksen. Obviously, there is an emotional connection for the player given that he spent the best years of his career in North London.

Spurs are making progress at a rapid rate. And signing Eriksen would not eat up any of the club’s transfer budget.

Antonio Conte’s men will be playing in the Champions League next year. So the squad will be stretched. And having someone as good as Eriksen in the ranks would be fantastic for the club.

He is an ‘incredible‘ player with plenty more to give at the very highest level.

Spurs will have other targets in mind, so they will alternative options should they not sign Eriksen.

But these reports suggest that Tottenham are indeed on the right path towards re-signing their former star.
