Spurs scouts attended an international tie to look at former fan favourite

Tottenham Hotspur scouts were present at the Austria vs Denmark clash to look at Christian Eriksen

According to the Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur scouts were in attendance to watch Austria vs. Denmark at the Ernst-Happoi Stadion in Vienna as Christian Eriksen took to the field.

It was Denmark who emerged 2-1 winners on a night that was more talked about for reasons besides football – a power outage delaying the start of the game, and a giant hole appearing on the pitch after full-time. 

What likely drew the attention of Spurs scouts was the presence of Pierre Emile-Hojbjerg and club target Christian Eriksen in the Denmark line-up.  They must have been pleased with what they saw, as the former opened the scoring near the half an hour mark. 

Austria equalised in the second half with a quarter of the game still remaining, before Udinese’s James Stryger-Larsen won it for the Danes with a beautiful curler from outside the box in the 84th minute. 

Also in attendance were scouts from Manchester United, West Ham, Borussia Dortmund and Bayer 04 Leverkusen amongst other clubs. Whether they too were in attendance to scout Eriksen or have other plans in mind remains to be seen.

Should Spurs be concerned?

The presence of United would be especially concerning to Spurs, given that the Red Devils plan on rivalling the North London club for the services of Eriksen. 

The 30-year-old Denmark Captain spent six-and-a-half years at Tottenham, amassing 305 appearances across all competitions. During his tenure, he registered 69 goals and 90 assists, thoroughly cementing his status as a club icon.

Eriksen and Conte worked together at Inter Milan briefly.

Eriksen joined Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan in January 2020 but struggled to establish a place in the starting XI. He terminated his Nerazzurri contract in December 2021, six months after suffering a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020.

Just over a month later, Eriksen made a surprise return to the Premier League by signing for Thomas Frank’s Brentford. The midfielder has shown his class yet again, scoring once and assisting four times and having numerous goal involvements in only 11 appearances. 

The Dane is undergoing a resurgence of sorts and could do with one last big move in his career. Tottenham for their part also requires a player of his skills operating in midfield. Whether a reunion is on the cards remains to be seen.
