Eriksen ready for Inter exit if Spurs agree to ‘expensive loan’


Christian Eriksen is set to leave Inter Milan this summer with Spurs as the most likely destination, according to a report in Italy.

The playmaker joined Inter Milan from Tottenham in January for £ 16.9million after reducing his contract to six months.

He expected to make a big impact in Italy under Antonio Conte, but has been limited to just four Serie A starts this season.

OPINION: Premier League winners and losers

Now it looks like the Denmark international will be leaving Inter with a return to Spurs increasingly likely.

Calciomercato describes Eriksen as “on sale” with “the work of some intermediaries on the Premier League front rekindled interest in some English clubs”.

Jose Mourinho is said to “want him on loan” but the main stumbling block will be the finances of any deal.

Inter “understandably do not want to lend Eriksen a free loan to the same club” to which they paid £ 16.9million in the summer.

Calciomercato adds that the 28-year-old “can only return to Spurs with an expensive loan and with the payment of salary, otherwise nothing will be done.”

Meanwhile, Mourinho has insisted that Tanguy Ndombele deserves all the praise for his Tottenham turnaround.

Signing the Spurs record seemed to have a bleak future when Mourinho arrived at the club after struggling to adjust to the Premier League, with the Portuguese regularly criticizing the midfielder’s hunger and fitness.

But this season, the 24-year-old has established himself as a key player on the side of Mourinho and his ‘brilliant’ strikes in 3-1 win at Sheffield United will be remembered for a long time because he produced a daring blow to the head of the keeper fleeing the goal.

It came at a crucial time, restoring the visitors’ two-goal lead after David McGoldrick returned home following first-half goals from Serge Aurier and Harry Kane.

Mourinho gave Ndombele all the credit for his rebirth at the North London club.

He said: “I have coached for so many years, I have had so many players and I have enough experience to say and feel that when a player does not play very well, it is his responsibility. , and when a player changes things and brings their performance to a very high level, it is also their responsibility.

“It’s a great example that with me the door is always open. The door to the team is always open, and when a player is not playing he has to try to figure out why and he has to try to figure out how he can get through that door. He understood, he understood.

“The goal is incredible, but I don’t care about the goal, I care about the performance and the performance was wonderful and I’m really happy he got to this level. He plays very, very well.
