It appears that the Christian Eriksen transfer saga isn’t ceasing anytime soon as news emerges involving Tottenham Hotspur.
The Lowdown: Spurs in contention?
Conflicting reports on the Dane’s future have come to light in the past few days as Spurs continue their chase for more summer signings after completing Yves Bissouma’s move from Brighton.
Sharing news at the weekend, The Athletic reporter Charlie Eccleshare claimed that Eriksen’s return to north London appeared ‘fairly likely’, but another reliable source in football.london’s Alasdair Gold then came out to distance the club from a reunion with the player.

Other reports have since suggested that Tottenham remain firmly in contention to sign the 30-year-old, with The Guardian now sharing their own update.
The Latest: Eriksen stance shared…
The news source reported that Eriksen is keen to join Spurs, with their reporter Jamie Jackson making a claim.
Indeed, the Bees playmaker is apparently ‘favouring’ either a reunion under his former Inter boss Antonio Conte in north London or simply staying at Brentford. This comes after the Denmark international allegedly rejected a move to Manchester United.
The Verdict: Take advantage?
As this update emerges that Spurs could still have a chance to re-sign Eriksen, we believe that the Lilywhites should re-consider their alleged stance on moving for him.
Heralded as a ‘fighter‘ by sports journalist Thierry Nyann for his fairytale comeback after suffering a cardiac arrest last year, the Denmark footballing legend’s elite mentality is perhaps best summed up by this tag.
Who should Conte sign next for Tottenham?
Conte could certainly use players with this extraordinary determination, not to mention quality, as highlighted by Eriksen finishing 2021/22 as Brentford’s best performer by average match rating, as per WhoScored.
There is little doubt in our mind the £159k-per-week star would be a real asset for Spurs.
