Eriksen, 28, left Tottenham Hotspur in January earlier this year after refusing to sign a new deal with the London club.

In a desperate attempt to recoup some funds for their star-midfielder, Daniel Levy was forced into letting Eriksen depart during the January transfer window.

Inter Milan coughed up £24.3m (TransferMarkt) for the Dane’s services, but the transfer has not worked out for either party with the former Tottenham Hotspur man now openly eyeing a move away from his new side less than 12-months after joining.

Eriksen has only featured in three matches so far this season under Antonio Conte and has failed to register a single goal or assist.

The elite midfielder’s form is in stark contrast to the form he was in during his Premier League days.

Speaking live on TV2, when asked about his transfer and his future, as quoted by Evening Standard, the 28-year-old said: “This isn’t what I dreamed of.

“All players want to play as much as possible, but the coach decides who gets to go on the pitch.

“It is a strange situation, as the fans want to see me playing more and so would I, but the coach has different ideas and as a player I have to respect that.”

Do you think Eriksen will leave in January and if you’re a Spurs fan, would you welcome him back? – Let us know in the comments.

    I wish Christian all the best, but I never want him back at Spurs. In his last year before leaving his form dipped so badly that I was pleased he went. The fact that Inter wont sell us Skrinniar now, Serves them right that they are lumbered with him.

  2. Swindon Spurs says:

    As well as we are doing, we are clearly missing a bit of creativity. Burnley and West Brom games, we just scraped by with pretty much one good chance only created in the game. These are not top sides, we have those to come. So if he was fully motivated as he was before that last year or so, I would. But you just wonder if his heart isn’t in it any more. He isn’t getting a chance at Inter, he never seemed that interested for us at the end. Take the Champions League final. We have this fine front three now and they need to get the ball more. He can find them. So I can’t help but be interested in him at a similar cut price.

    I was a big fan of Eriksen when he was at Spurs. Even when he departed i wanted him to do well, but I certainly won’t want him back at Spurs

  4. Clippie says:

    He was a great player for Spurs but for the last season or so of his time couldn’t be bothered. We don’t want that attitude back which, also, doesn’t say much for him as a person.

  5. Femmy says:

    I don’t really know if he can fit in in Morinho style but we have really missed his free kicks,
    crossings, awareness and chances he creates. Both Lo Celso and Tanguy have failed in these areas.

  6. MikeN says:

    Yes he is a great player and I would welcome him back. He had been at the club for several years and wished for a new challenge with a realistic chance of winning trophies. Feel sorry it hasn’t worked out for him.

  8. Yakka says:

    Christian showed his true metal in his last year at Spurs taking the wage and not showing the commitment he was truly capable of, he was once a great player earning huge respect at Spurs, that ship has sailed and I don’t see a return to WHL #COYS
