Tottenham boss Antonio Conte turns to Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg for information on Christian Eriksen 

Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte has asked for information on transfer target Christian Eriksen to club midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg

According to Danish outlet Bold (h/t the Express), Hojbjerg has confessed that the Spurs boss had enquired about his Danish team-mate. 

Eriksen, who spent an illustrious six-and-a-half years at Tottenham, has been linked with a return to North London this summer. During his time at the club, he played 305 games – scoring 69 goals and providing 90 assists

The Spurs icon joined Brentford earlier this year during the January transfer window. Eriksen’s short-term deal with Thomas Frank’s side is due to expire this month, hence his future is up in the air.

The Denmark captain’s performances since signing for the Bees haven’t gone unnoticed, attracting the attention of PL rivals Manchester United. 

Eriksen has scored one goal and registered four assists in 11 games for Brentford and while those aren’t groundbreaking numbers, it’s the midfielder’s performances as a deep-lying playmaker that has caught everyone’s attention.

Hjojberg is currently on national duty in the Nations League, where he has reunited with Eriksen. Naturally, that is a channel of communication for club boss Conte.

Speaking on the matter, Hojbjerg said: 

“Everyone knows that Christian is a master of his own future. He needs to have peace of mind with the family, to figure out what the next step is for him and I am sure he will make the best possible choice for himself.”

Should Eriksen consider leaving Brentford, it is likely that he would prefer a move to Spurs given his familiarity with the club and of course, Champions League football – something his other prospective buyers may not be able to provide now or guarantee in the near future.
