Tottenham Hotspur failed to bring back Christian Eriksen this summer

Speaking on the Here We Go Podcast (h/t Football.london), transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Tottenham Hotspur attempted to bring back Christian Eriksen to the club this summer.

Spurs have enjoyed a rather excellent transfer window, having brought in a number of players. The likes of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart, Matt Doherty, Sergio Reguilon have all made the switch to North London.

The club has also made use of the loan market to bring in former hero Gareth Bale and Brazilian striker Carlos Vinicius on a temporary basis. If Daniel Levy had his way, Eriksen would have made it a hat-trick of excellent loan deals.

“This one I know, Tottenham fans will get crazy but there was a chance to see Christian Eriksen back to Tottenham this summer.”

Discussions regarding bringing back Eriksen on loan were made during negotiations regarding Tanguy Ndombele and Milan Skriniar.

“Someone from Tottenham asked if there was the possibility to get Eriksen back on loan.”

Inter Milan immediately shot down the proposal, having only signed him from Spurs earlier this January. They were not keen on losing the Dane after paying €20m for him just nine months ago.

A proven player and a familiar face

Eriksen was a fan favourite at Spurs after signing for the club from Ajax Amsterdam in 2013. In his six-and-a-half years at the club, he made over 300 appearances, scoring 69 goals and assisting 89 more. (h/t Transfermarkt)

With him in the final year of his deal at Spurs, Eriksen sought to seek his fortunes elsewhere. While Inter finished second in Serie A and made it to the finals of the Europa League, Eriksen has struggled to make an impact at the San Siro.

This has led to speculations over his future in Italy just six months after making the move. However, with the window now shut, it would appear that he is set to stay on.

Having already signed Bale, bringing back Eriksen would have induced frantic levels of nostalgia in Spurs fans.

It would have been interesting to see how he would have been welcomed back by fans given his patronizing comments since leaving us in January.
