TOTTENHAM are ‘interested’ in taking Christian Eriksen back on loan, according to reports.

The Danish playmaker, 28, left North London a year ago to join Inter Milan.

But the £16.9million transfer has flopped miserably over the last 12 months under Antonio Conte.

And Eriksen is thought to want out already with Inter open to loaning him to put him in the shop window for a summer sale.

According to Sky Sports, he is hopeful of a return to Spurs although no formal talks have taken place yet.

However, Inter’s loan-fee demands could put off Daniel Levy, who is shelling out big money for Gareth Bale’s romantic return on loan from Real Madrid.

New PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino may try and reunite with the 103-cap Denmark international while Arsenal, Manchester United, Wolves and Ajax have all been linked.

Eriksen spent six-and-a-half years with Tottenham but left when Jose Mourinho came in.

He made 305 appearances for the club, scoring 69 goals.

But since his switch to Italy, his stats make for pretty grim reading with just four in 40 matches – and not a goal or assist in his 14 this term.

The report adds Conte told Eriksen in private to show character as he has the quality to be Inter’s No1 playmaker.

Speaking about Eriksen’s situation last year, Inter Milan chief executive Giuseppe Marotta said: “Conte has already spoken about it thoroughly. I can just add that we do not certainly have to force a player to stay when he asks to leave.

“We will have to evaluate the situation. Now he is available for Conte, who has been making him play in [Eriksen’s] respect and in the club’s respect.

“Up to now, we have not received any request from Eriksen, but at the right time we will try to find the right combinations.”
