Eurosport have claimed that West Ham United are considering a shock move to raid Inter Milan and bring Christian Eriksen back to London in the January window – as he continue to struggle under Antonio Conte.
Eriksen, 28, ended a seven-year spell with Tottenham in January 2020 when he decided to leave Spurs and move to Inter. He had entered the last six months of his contract at Spurs, and was struggling for form under Jose Mourinho.
But his form has hardly improved at Inter. Clocking up 36 appearances, he has managed to score just four goals – and create only three more. The 103-time Denmark international is being strongly linked with a return to England.
Spurs and Arsenal have been strongly linked, but the latest report claims West Ham could make a move. The Hammers do have history with Inter Milan – David Moyes signed Joao Mario on loan during his first spell in charge.
TBR’s view – Eriksen would be a sensational Hammers signing
But after clocking up more than 300 appearances for Tottenham, would Eriksen really consider joining one of his former side’s biggest rivals in West Ham – or Arsenal, for that matter? On paper, Eriksen would be a worldie signing.
Whether West Ham can afford his wages, or simply tempt him with a move to the London Stadium, remains to be seen. But his experience in the Premier League would not only improve the Hammers, but unite a fanbase, too.
His pay cheque currently stands at £260,000 a week as per the Guardian, so Inter would certainly have to pay at least half – if not more for Eriksen to return to London.
