Christian Erikens return to group training to make Premier League comeback

Former Tottenham star Christian Eriksen could make a return to group training by the end of January – potentially with a Premier League club.

The attacking midfielder suffered a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 while playing for his country, Denmark, against Finland and has not played since

The 29-year-old had his contract with Inter Milan terminated by mutual consent following the fitting of a ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator) to regulate his heart beat.

Italy’s National Olympic Committee rules, which Inter Milan are bound to, state that footballers are not allowed to play in Italy with an ICD – meaning Eriksen’s time in Italy was cut short.

Now a free agent, the former Ajax prodigy is currently spending time with Swiss club Chiasso to train alone in preparation for group training – providing the all clear is given.

Speaking about the player’s road to recovery, Eriksen’s representative, Martin Schoots, told Sportsmail: “It is going really well for Christian.

He had all the checks just before Christmas and the results were so good that we expect him to be involved in a group training with a team some time later in January.

“But I would prefer Christian to talk about this himself and he will do so very soon.”

The Denmark international has attracted interest from clubs in his native country, Holland, and in England from multiple Premier League sides.

Eriksen previously spent seven seasons with Tottenham before signing for Inter Milan in a £17million transfer in January 2020, with current Tottenham boss Antonio Conte his manager.

The pair won Serie A together last season with the Dane given 26 appearances in the league, scoring three goals.
