As per a reliable source, Christian Eriksen is keen on a return to the Premier League just one year after his move to Inter Milan.

Fabrizio Romano reports that Christian Eriksen has his heart set on a return to former side Tottenham.

The Dane enjoyed six-and-a-half years in north London before leaving for the Serie A giants last January.

However, Eriksen has failed to settle at the San Siro and Antonio Conte is already looking to cash in on his £25million star. The Premier League is looking like his most likely destination.

According to journalist Fabrizio Romano, the Dane wants to return to the Premier League, preferably at Spurs. However, his Inter wages could prove a stumbling block for the north London outfit.

“Christian Eriksen wants to leave and would love to be back in the Premier League, especially with Tottenham” Romano told Sky Sports’ Transfer Talk.

“At the moment that’s not so easy, his wages are €7.5million-a-season (£6.7m) after taxes, which is totally different to his salary a year ago when he was playing at Tottenham.”

As well as his wages, Spurs could also be put off by a loan fee being demanded of them

Romano added that should Spurs balk at the fee being demanded, their Premier League rivals are keeping tabs on the 28-year-old’s situation.

“That’s a problem, as is the fact Inter are asking for a loan fee to be paid before letting Eriksen return to Spurs but not other clubs” Romano added.

“They paid to sign him when he had six months left on his contract, so they want a fee from Tottenham before he goes back.”

“I’m sure they will try and come to a deal but it’s not so easy, and there are other clubs in the Premier League talking to his representatives as well.”
