Journalist Pete O’Rourke believes that Tottenham are indeed among the clubs interested in Christian Eriksen before the summer.

Eriksen’s return to Premier League competition was the feel-good story of the season following his cardiac arrest in last summer’s European Championship.

The 30-year-old has demonstrated for both club and country that he still possesses the quality in the final third that made him such a potent threat during his time at Spurs.

Reports in recent weeks have indicated that Tottenham are considering bringing Eriksen back to north London this summer for a second spell when his six-month contract with Brentford expires (The daily mail).

According to Football Insiderthe Danish international is keen to complete a fairytale return to the Lilywhites.

O’Rourke has now said Spurs are monitoring Eriksen’s progress but suggested the Lilywhites could face stiff competition if he does not sign a new contract with the Bees.

The journalist told GiveMeSport regarding Tottenham’s interest in Eriksen: “They are watching him. His return to the Premier League has been a real fairy tale.

“It was a really brilliant story; it looks like he was never out after that horrible heart attack he suffered at the Euros.

“He’s found his best form and proven what a class player he is, and I’m sure if he’s not able to secure a new contract at Brentford there will be plenty of clubs for him. , not just Tottenham.”

This move would make sense for many reasons, not least because we lack an Eriksen-quality number eight in our squad. Signing the Dane would give Conte plenty of options and we could certainly use his creativity in games like the one against Brighton on Saturday.
