And Spurs boss Antonio Conte recently admitted he’d bring the 30-year-old back to N17 “for sure”.

Eriksen has impressed for Brentford, registering four assists and one goal in 10 appearances.

His efforts have helped Thomas Frank’s charges secure safety in the Premier League this term.

Eriksen has also capped off a remarkable comeback for Denmark, scoring twice for his country in March.

The playmaker’s contract runs out at the end of the season.

While the Bees hope to keep Eriksen, there’s a lot of competition for his signature.

As well as Tottenham, the likes of Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, Everton, Newcastle and West Ham are reportedly eyeing him.

Spurs have have re-signed players in the past, including Younes Kaboul, Jermain Defoe, Robbie Keane, and Gareth Bale.

While some of those haven’t worked out, Jones thinks Tottenham cannot pass up the chance to bring back Eriksen.

“There’s a general rule in football that is don’t go back,” he wrote on GiveMeSport.

“But in this sense Eriksen can be a rule break because he’s ridiculous and this isn’t your normal situation that has opened up.

“Eriksen being available as a free agent is an opportunity you simply can’t turn down.”
