Christian Eriksen wants to be back in the Premier League with a stunning return by the weekend – just seven months after suffering a cardiac arrest

Eriksen part ways with Milan After the Milan giants, as league rules prohibit any player from appearing in Serie A after having a heart starter fitted. However, there appear to be no such rules in the Premier League, with the 29-year-old ex-Tottenham star having set his sights on “proving he’s still a high-level player” in his bid for Kaspar Hurmand Win a place in the competition. Denmark will play in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
As mentioned in the Times report, Eriksen was paid more than £200,000-a-week at Inter but is now able to sign for free, and there are rumours that Eriksen will not be able to sign after the big payday. Sen became a potentially affordable option for the few clubs in need of his creative genius.
Three clubs could benefit from signing Danish star
Speculation around Christian Eriksen’s potential destination will no doubt start to spin, as many Premier League teams could benefit from his addition. Here are three of his best fit.
New Castle: Probably the easiest option on the shortlist, Newcastle do need reinforcements in all areas of the pitch under Eddie Howe, but they are recruiting Kieran Trippier and Chris WoodBut the harsh reality remains that the Magpies have lost any consistent creativity that doesn’t stem from Alan Saint-Maximin’s technical grace.
Everton: Another weekend, another defeat for struggling Everton, who are just six points clear of third-last place. There is no doubt that Rafa Benitez’s place at Goodison Park is in jeopardy. Signing an Eriksen-level player would not only add to his positional strength, but would make him a tactically versatile player, allowing him to have a creative edge away from wingers DeMarre Gray and Andros Townsend way out. Abdoulaye Doucoure played alongside Eriksen and Allen in midfield, and it really was a strong midfield trio.
Leeds United: Like Everton, Leeds United have struggled this season, compared to the club’s sense of belonging under owner Andrea Radrizzani and director of football Victor Horta. Also like the Toffees and Newcastle, Leeds lack creativity in the heart of the park. The fit duo of Kalvin Phillips and Mateusz Klich is intimidating, but not the puppet master you need. The same goes for Rodrigo, who often serves as a midfield substitute. Only Clichy and Patrick Bamford have had more than one assist this season, and Eriksen could well address that.
