Jose Mourinho makes transfer decision on Christian Eriksen

Mourinho turns down chance to re-sign Eriksen

Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly declined the opportunity to re-sign Christian Eriksen from Inter Milan in January.



The Dane left Spurs for Inter during the 2020 winter transfer window after rejecting a contract extension with the club.

Eriksen has since experienced a tough time with the Nerazzurri and he has registered just one goal from 17 Serie A appearances.

He is currently out-of-favour under Antonio Conte and it was recently claimed that he could return to Spurs at the turn of the year.

However, according to Football Insider, that is unlikely to happen as Mourinho has no plans of re-signing the 28-year-old.

The Portuguese believes he has sufficient attacking options and does not feel the need for another signing in the department.

Eriksen could still make the switch to the Premier League with Arsenal deemed to be monitoring his situation.

The Gunners have lacked the presence of a creative midfielder in their ranks and they could look to pursue the Dane's signature.

He is currently valued at around £25m, but the Gunners may only propose to sign him on loan with the option to buy next summer.
