Tottenham transfers: Spurs offered chance to re-sign Christian Eriksen from Inter Milan

Jose Mourinho

Tottenham are a changed team. That's the simple way of putting it anyway. 

So far this season, they have beaten Manchester United 6-1 and are sitting second in the Premier League.

With no clear frontrunner for the title, could this be the year that they finally win the elusive trophy?

It's a question we're struggling to answer. After all, Spurs have a horrible habit of crumbling and running out of steam. 

The hard work performed by Mauricio Pochettino in building a team that became Champions League regulars was undone last term as Mourinho failed to get top four football.

Thus, the 2018/19 European finalists are now competing in the Europa League alongside the likes of Arsenal and Leicester. 

The group stages aren't a particularly pretty phase of the competition and Spurs felt the full force of that when they were defeated embarrassingly by Royal Antwerp.

Whether they become title challengers, however, will depend on numerous things. How they fare over the Christmas period will be important but getting the January window right will also be pivotal. 

It's now only November but we're already seeing the transfer rumours come flying in.

One of the latest reports is from Football Insider who revealed a piece of surprising information this week.

This week they claimed that Tottenham could spectacularly re-sign Christian Eriksen from Inter Milan. 

A source told the outlet that intermediaries have offered the attacking midfielder to his former club as well as other leading Premier League sides.

He only moved to Serie A last January, penning a £200k-a-week contract with Inter. 

However, the Italian side are now keen to reduce their wage bill and need to raise funds through player sales or loan deals.

GIVEMESPORT'S Matt Dawson says... 

To put things bluntly, Eriksen's final year or so at Spurs became incredibly toxic. It was always a story of whether he was staying and going, while he ended up being left out of the squad on a regular basis by Jose Mourinho.

Eriksen admitted in an interview with the BBC back in February that he'd become a scapegoat, telling them: "I did get the blame for a lot of stuff, for being the bad guy." 

The Denmark international continued: "I read I was the bad person in the changing room, that ever since I said I wanted to leave, it was no good me being there. To be honest, over the last few years, if anything came up, any player would think about leaving but I was the guy who said it publicly."

It was a bizarre end to his time in north London.

After all, he'd been a phenomenal player for the Lilywhites after initially signing from Ajax in 2013.

Eriksen scored 69 goals during his seven-year stay in the capital, providing 89 assists too. 

It's no wonder that his former manager, Pochettino, thought that he was a terrific talent. 

Back in April 2019 after Spurs beat Brighton, he waxed lyrical about the 28-year-old.

"He has an amazing quality and can shoot from outside the area and has an unbelievable shot with his left and with his right foot. Christian is a special person and we are all special and different and we need to understand that." 

If we're looking at ways Spurs can improve their title aspirations further then adding a creative player in the mould of Eriksen would be no bad idea. After all, their lack of creativity against West Brom last weekend was clear for all to see.
