Daniel Levy is reportedly willing to sanction the loan exit of Dele Alli in January and could allow him to leave Tottenham for as much as 18 months – but his choice of club could hand West Ham the chance to bring Christian Eriksen back to England.
Alli, 24, has only been afforded game time in the Europa League of late before a very brief substitute appearance against Crystal Palace on Sunday. With Euro 2021 in mind and having falling down the pecking order, a loan is expected.
90Min claim numerous Premier League clubs are keen, as are RB Leipzig, AC Milan, PSG and Monaco – and Inter. The latter are looking for a replacement for ex-Tottenham hero Christian Eriksen, who has struggled since his move to the Nerrazzuri.
Eurosport claim West Ham are considering a shock move to bring 103-time Denmark international Eriksen back to the Premier League – though Eriksen could be considered somewhat ambitious for the Hammers, with Arsenal already linked.
But it is clear that with Tottenham willing to let Alli go on loan and Inter trying to get rid of Eriksen just a year after the swapped Spurs for Antonio Conte’s side – that both transfers could work in tandem. Certainly, Inter signed Alli pushes Eriksen out.
He is already struggling to start matches and The Mail report – as per Tuttosport – Inter will sell for a fee worth £27million. A loan is much more likely in January, though. But he will seemingly only depart if Inter bring in a replacement.
So, if Inter beat the competition for Alli and lure the Tottenham man to the San Siro, surely that would grease the wheels for West Ham to lure Eriksen back to London from Inter – given Alli is viewed as a possible replacement for Eriksen?
