Tottenham: 115-goal star 'would be interested' in Hotspur Way move

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte in the Premier League against Burnley

Tottenham re-signing midfielder Christian Eriksen is a “no-brainer” if they qualify for the Champions League, according to transfer insider Dean Jones.

The 111-cap Denmark international is currently playing for Brentford, but the short-term deal that he signed in January expires this summer.

What’s the latest news involving Eriksen?

With Eriksen, who has scored 115 goals in his career, set to be available on a free transfer this summer, his form with the Bees in recent games has caught the attention of several Premier League clubs.

According to 90min, up to eight top-flight teams are ‘keeping tabs’ on his current situation, although the report stats that Antonio Conte is ‘confident’ of reuniting with Eriksen at Tottenham having spent time together at Inter Milan last season.

Eriksen spent six-and-a-half years at Spurs, directly contributing to an impressive 159 goals in 305 games, before he linked up with Conte at San Siro in 2019.

Following his cardiac arrest at last summer’s Euros, though, Eriksen was forced to leave Inter and he returned to England.

But having only penned a six-month deal with Thomas Frank’s men, the 30-year-old will be back on the market once again this summer, providing he doesn’t sign an extension with Brentford.

And Jones believes that Fabio Paratici and Conte should be all over a potential deal.

What did Jones say about Eriksen?

He told GIVEMESPORT: “He would have interest in going back to Tottenham, and Tottenham do have a desire to bring him back if they do qualify for the Champions League, so it seems like a no-brainer.”

Are Tottenham likely to qualify for the Champions League?

Having been gifted an opening following Arsenal’s defeat at Newcastle on Monday, it’s pretty clear for Tottenham ahead of their final-day trip to Norwich; avoid defeat and you’ll be playing amongst Europe’s elite next season.

Conte’s side technically don’t even have to win, though. If the Gunners fail to beat Everton, who could still be battling against relegation, then Spurs will finish above their bitter rivals and qualify for the Champions League regardless of their result at Carrow Road.

But it couldn’t be simpler for Spurs. Don’t lose to the bottom team, who are already relegated, and you’re a Champions League club once again.
