According to Fabrizio Romano, Tottenham Hotspur are ready to re-sign Christian Eriksen. The Inter Milan playmaker has emerged as a shock transfer target for Jose Mourinho, with the Spurs manager keen on re-signing him on a short-term loan just a year after offloading him to Serie A. Although the player himself is also willing to return to north London, his €7.5 million per season wages could prove a problem.
Christian Eriksen’s Struggles At Inter Milan
Christian Eriksen was brought in at Inter earlier last year in order to provide more oomph in their creative play. The Dane was already successful at Tottenham and was available for cheap, paving the way for the Serie A giants to bag quite a bargain.
However, Antonio Conte’s treatment of Eriksen has been far from impressive. Although the player does deserve some flak for not quite settling into life in Italian football, the former Chelsea manager has often frozen him out of the squad. He has preferred players like Arturo Vidal and Stefano Sensi ahead of the playmaker, even in the ongoing campaign.
As a result, the 28-year-old has mustered only 294 minutes of league football. In fact, only four of his nine appearances in the league have been starts, with a majority of them coming during the early stages of the campaign. Hence, a move away from San Siro looks like the best option for Eriksen in this ongoing January transfer window.
Do Tottenham Hotspur Require The Services Of Eriksen?
Thanks to some smart activity in the transfer market, Tottenham Hotspur have no shortage of attacking options at the moment. Yet, the club has appeared far too overreliant on the services of Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane, largely due to lack of productivity and form from other attackers.
Gareth Bale arrived from Real Madrid on loan, but he is struggling to find his full fitness. As a result, he has spent most of the time out on the sidelines alongside Giovani Lo Celso. As for Lucas Moura, he and Steven Bergwijn simply haven’t been able to provide the productivity going forward while Dele Alli’s future at Spurs seemingly looks bleak.
Therefore, it is fair to point out that the Lilywhites may require some additional firepower. At the same time, a move to re-sign Eriksen could be a risky one largely due to the playmaker’s expensive wage demands. It could cripple Tottenham’s wage structure, especially with the Premier League side already boasting the services of other expensive players like Bale, Kane and Son.
Perhaps a better option for Mourinho at the moment is to offload fringe players like Alli and Erik Lamela in favour of more long-term investments. The likes of Jack Clarke and Harvey White have already shown a lot of potential and the club could strike gold if they can secure the services of someone like Michael Olise.
