Former Tottenham star Christian Eriksen touted to replace an out of favour Dele Alli

According to Teamtalk (h/t Football.london), Christian Eriksen could be set for a sensational return to Tottenham Hotspur if Dele Alli departs the club this January.

It would prove to be a rather humbling return for a player who left just under a year ago in search of better opportunities. Having won no honours at Inter Milan, Eriksen could ironically be set to return to a Tottenham side set to contest the Carabao Cup final.

Similar to Eriksen, Alli too has had a year to forget. The 24-year-old has fallen out of favour with Jose Mourinho, making just four Premier League appearances all season.

While Tottenham are not actively looking to offload Alli, speculation regarding his future continues to make the rounds. It has only increased after former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino took over at Paris Saint-Germain.

It was under the Argentine’s tutelage that Alli transformed himself from a promising midfielder to a powerhouse of a player. PSG’s interest in the player precedes Pochettino’s appointment following their interest last summer.

Familiar with the secrets to unlocking the English international, a link-up in the French capital could theoretically see Pochettino rekindle Alli’s career.

The transfer could save more than one career if Eriksen’s plight in Italy is anything to go by. The Dane was one of Tottenham’s best players while in England. With Inter, he has struggled to make any sort of positive impact.

Interestingly, Eriksen is also a target for Pochettino at PSG. He believes the Dane is easier to attain compared to Alli and could make a move to land him this month. (h/t Daily Mail)

If all goes well, this transfer merry-go-round could work out well in Spurs’ favour. At 28, Eriksen is in his prime and has shown in the past that he can be a gamechanger for the club. He will also return full well knowing that the grass is not always greener on the other side.

As things stand, it is difficult to see where Alli fits in Mourinho’s plans. While his ability is unquestionable, his commitment at this point in time is suspect. There is no point in us keeping a non-performing asset if we do not intend to make the most of his abilities.
