Inter Milan can only make new signings in the winter market after finding a new club for Christian Eriksen.
A return to Tottenham Hotspur has been regularly discussed in the Italian media, while it has also been stated a potential deal remains complicated for various reasons.
According to Calciomercato, the 28-year-old still has admirers in England, including Spurs and the Premier League remains the Nerazzurri’s ‘last hope’ to offload the player.
It’s claimed José Mourinho has opened the door for the Denmark international’s return to the north London club.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, who hasn’t said no to Eriksen’s signing in January, wants to take the attacking midfielder on certain conditions.
Levy wants the former Ajax man on a loan deal and Inter paying part of his €7-7.5m annual salary.
These conditions are ‘inadmissible’ for Antonio Conte’s side and at the same time, the position maintained by the former Chelsea manager and Levy over Eriksen’s signing has resulted in a tug of war at Tottenham.
With less than two weeks left for the window to close, the Serie A side are hopeful that Arsenal will come forward to take Eriksen in the winter market.
