Christian Eriksen

Inter Milan outcast Christian Eriksen could make a sensational return to Tottenham if Dele Alli reunites with Mauricio Pochettino at PSG, according to reports in Italy.

Just a year after departing Spurs for Italy in a cut-price £17.5m move, the Dane finds himself seeking pastures new after falling out-of-favour under Antonio Conte.

But a move back to Spurs would be contingent on Dele Alli sealing a transfer of his own, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

They claim that a return to Spurs is on the cards for Eriksen if Alli moves to PSG and reunites with their former boss Mauricio Pochettino, who took over at the French giants at the weekend.

Though Sportsmail reported this week that Eriksen is a primary target for Pochettino, the report indicates that the Argentine is in no rush to work with him again.

Like his former team-mate, Alli is also struggling for playing time this season having been frozen out by Jose Mourinho.

Inter CEO Beppe Marotta last month confirmed that they would be seeking a permanent transfer for Eriksen.

He said: ‘We’ve been very clear many times that there are players on the so-called transfer list, these are players who want to play more regularly, and the club is ready to make them happy and find replacements.

‘Eriksen is on the transfer list, Piero Ausilio confirmed as much. He has struggled to settle into the squad, he is not functional to the squad.

‘That is not any insult towards his professionalism, there is no punishment.

‘It’s just a situation that has developed and it’s only fair he goes where he can play more regularly.’

Eriksen spent seven years at Spurs, making 305 appearances after his arrival from Ajax in 2013.

He was a key figure in their run to the final of the Champions League in 2019, but left just six months later as he searched for a new challenge.

But it has not worked out for him at the San Siro, with the 28-year-old struggling for form and consistency during 12 months in Italy.
