Inter Midfielder back to EPL? Leicester, Spurs and Arsenal Linked

After 12 miserable months in Italy, Christian Eriksen is desperate for a new adventure that would re-launch his career. The Dane was arguably one of the finest midfielders in the world during his Tottenham Hotspur days, so his former club could be willing to offer him an escape route. Nonetheless, the Spurs are not the only club from North London who’s interested in Eriksen, as their hated rivals Arsenal are reportedly in the race as well, and the same goes for Leicester city.

According the Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano via Calciomercato, Leicester and Tottenham are both trying to bring the midfielder back to England, and the Foxes view him as the right man to replace former Sampdoria midfielder Dennis Praet who’s currently injured.

However, the problem lies in the player’s wages, as Inter are apparently unwilling to give discounts regarding the matter. Therefore, any club who wishes to sign the 28-year-old on loan until the end of the campaign must be willing to pay him the remaining 4 million euros of his salary until June.

On the other hand, Tuttosport (via Calciomercato) reports that Arsenal are willing to give Eriksen an alternative road to his former employers (the Spurs), as the Gunners are offering the Nerazzurri an exchange of loans involving the Danish international and Lucas Torreira who’s currently on loan at Atletico Madrid.

During the current campaign, Eriksen has featured so far 14 times for the Beneamata in all competitions, but has yet to contribute in a goal or an assist.

For the sake of the player, one must hope that he’d find himself a new home where he’d be able to find his best form again, as his experience with Antonio Conte is clearly not working out.

However, the escape route looks to be a little bit complicated at the moment, especially with the player’s current form being unable to justify his high wages.

A return to Spurs 12 months after his unceremonious exit seems to be a bit far-fetched, at least at the moment, and the exchange of loans with Arsenal is probably too complicated to pull off – especially with Atletico Madrid being involved – so a move to Leicester might be the most realistic transfer for Eriksen in the current market.
