Wolves have joined the race for Christian Eriksen, according to reports – but one of his former clubs would also like to sign him.

Eriksen has suffered a downturn in fortunes since leaving Tottenham for Inter Milan in January 2020. He has struggled to fit into Antonio Conte’s system.

The Denmark international has started just four games in Serie A this season and has not contributed a goal or assist. He has managed more minutes in six games for his country than 12 for his club since the season began.

Inter Milan have confirmed they have put Eriksen on the transfer list. It seems more and more likely that he will leave this month.

There have been claims that Eriksen is keen to return to Tottenham, but a deal seems unlikely. His future could still be in the Premier League, though.


For example, Arsenal have been heavily linked with a bid for their former rival player, as they are in desperate need of more creativity.

One report also suggested that West Ham could launch an ambitious bid for the 28-year-old.

Now, another English suitor has emerged. According to Sky Sport Italia, Wolves are in the hunt for Eriksen.

In fact, it is claimed that Wolves have already made contact over a possible transfer. However, no club has made a formal offer yet.

There have also been plenty of rumours about Eriksen joining a club elsewhere in Europe. Talk of a switch to Spain, for example, quickly came and went.

Paris Saint-Germain could try to take him to France, though, especially now that ex-Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has taken over there.

But Sky Sport Italia claim that the other club to have made informal contact for Eriksen has been Ajax.

The playmaker previously spent four years with the Dutch club, winning three league titles. Now, a return to the Netherlands could be on the cards.
