Tottenham know what they have to do in order to land Inter Milan midfielder Christian Eriksen
Spurs have recently been linked with the Danish midfielder who moved to Inter in January 2020. Things have not gone to plan for him as he has failed to score or assist in his 14 matches for Inter this season.
And now, Spurs know what they have to do in order to sign him. The report mentions that Inter want Tottenham to pay a loan fee, as well as Eriksen’s wages till the end of this campaign.

Eriksen previously spent more than 6 years at the club since he signed from Ajax Amsterdam during the 2013/14 season. In that time, he went on to make 305 appearances for the club in all competitions.
Jose Mourinho was the manager in January 2020 when the midfielder departed Tottenham for Serie A. A potential reunion for the two could be beneficial for both.
Eriksen might get more playing minutes in a league he already knows so well, while Mourinho could have a great option in midfield.
Spurs’ current midfield is pretty good on paper. However, the club is short on natural attacking-midfielders that can play in the hole. Harry Kane has dropped deeper this season in a more creative role, and Eriksen’s signing might let Kane play a little further up the pitch.
Inter have been so clear with Tottenham: if they want Eriksen back, they’ve to pay for the loan until the end of the season + salary.
Eriksen would like to move back to the Premier League. Also other EPL clubs in the race.
And let’s see Dele Alli/PSG decision by Levy… https://t.co/LWVqGmDkU2
