Report: Tottenham transfer target to decide future in the coming days amid offers from Man United, Brentford

By Eddie Razo -

Tottenham Hotspur is looking for some more offensive prowess from their midfield for next season, which is why the north London club is linked to a reunion with Christian Eriksen. 

Furthermore, manager Antonio Conte had the 30-year-old at Inter Milan, so there’s a connection at the club and managerial level for Eriksen. Transfer window specialist Fabrizio Romano provided the latest on the midfielder, with three offers on the table between Spurs, Manchester United, and Brentford. 

“Christian Eriksen has three proposals on the table, one from Brentford, one from Tottenham, and one from Manchester United. So he’s going to decide in the coming days,” Romano said. 

“But at the moment, it’s still something that is verbal, is still nothing on paper, and still nothing finalized.”

During his time at Tottenham, the Denmark international made 304 appearances, where he scored 69 goals and recorded 90 assists. Meanwhile, at Inter Milan under Conte, Eriksen appeared in 60 fixtures, scoring eight goals and recording three assists. 

It will be interesting to see where Eriksen decides to sign after a six-month stint with Brentford, showing that he’s more than capable of playing at a high level. Furthermore, it helped erase any doubts that he could not return to form after suffering a cardiac arrest last summer.

Yes, I think we are waiting…however, with 5 subs he’s not so bad to have on the bench, as supposed to an academy player when you need a goal..

If he’s the 7th signing maybe why not.

On a free, I suppose adding Eriksen doesn’t hurt for depth and a different look in the midfield. Also frees up more shekels for other signings. Just can’t let him take corners.

I have to agree that he is worth it as a freebie.What’s not to like particularly for Levy.He’s going to hae so much of his 150M left at the end of August.

Yes he did down tools before he left us but it could be argued that Levy forced him into that situation.I guess it’s a question of whether he wants to deal with Levy again.

There is still a good player there if last season is anything to go by and no settling in.His creative qualities are what we are sadly lacking.

It’s a no from me. He basically downed tools to get a move. Needs to be someone else’s problem IMO.

Eriksen’s last half season during 19 / 20 was well below the standards he had set. However; he wasn’t alone in this. Hugo was awful and many others also lost form after Poch was sacked and Jose was hired.

In Eriksen’s defence he clearly wasn’t prepared to accept the offer Levy gave him to stay and his rumoured 60k a week wages were ridiculously low for his contribution and what he helped Spurs to achieve in the previous four seasons.

He would give Spurs an option that we don’t currently have so I would take him as a game changing sub from the bench for the last 30 minutes when we are struggling to break teams down or to rest others. The 5 subs rule change that Conte referenced will make a difference this season and going forward.

Spurs probably need Eriksen for this reason if they are serious about challenging for trophies.

Me either. His crosses from corners rarely beat the first man. His free kicks were pointless. He didn’t want to play for Spurs anymore just like those who left before him. He thought he could do better elsewhere.

In principle we shouldn’t sign him, ‘never go back’ etc…but he’s the best available really

Remains to be seen. I’ve no doubt there’s interest elsewhere at big name clubs in europe, but if them’s his options, then it’s a no-brainer. He’ll ne largely playing off the bench in Conte’s formation, but I don’t think that’ll bother him. I’d take him back in a heartbeat….. and he’s a free.
