Christian Eriksen ‘close’ to securing Premier League return

Christian Eriksen is reportedly close to finalising a return to the Premier League as the midfielder looks to continue his career.

Eriksen has not played since suffering a cardiac arrest during Denmark’s clash with Finland at Euro 2020, with the midfielder requiring life-saving treatment on the pitch during distressing scenes last summer.

 

The 29-year-old is keen to resume his career after being fitted with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) device and a number of English teams have expressed an interest in signing the free agent.

Eriksen agreed to the mutual termination of his deal at Inter Milan – where he won the Serie A title last season – given that Italian football prohibits players competing in Serie A with ICDs.

According to the Times, the Denmark international has no reservations over a return and is inspired by former Ajax teammate Daley Blind, who has continued to compete at the highest level despite being fitted with an ICD in 2019.

Eriksen is believed to have held talks with several clubs in the Premier League and is understood to be ‘close to finalising a return to the division, having previously spent six-and-a-half seasons with Tottenham.

Newcastle, West Ham, Everton, Leicester and former side Spurs are amongst the clubs to have been linked with signing the midfielder on a free transfer.

Eriksen is keen to return at the highest level possible as he bids to feature for Denmark at the 2022 World Cup later this year.
