'To work again with him is fantastic opportunity' – Conte hints at shock Tottenham transfer swoop for Christian Eriksen

ANTONIO CONTE has dropped a big hint that Tottenham could try to re-sign Christian Eriksen this summer.

The ex-Spurs midfielder, now at Brentford, takes on his old club on Saturday in the Premier League.

Eriksen, 30, has been in sensational form with the Bees since joining on a six-month deal in January, half a year on from suffering a cardiac arrest playing for Denmark at last summer’s Euros.

He is set to be a free agent in the summer and many Spurs supporters would love to see him return to the club where he spent seven seasons in the 2010s.

“But then when I understood what I wanted about him then he played. We won together a title, the league in Italy.

“When you have this type of player, a great player, a good man, I think every manager, every coach, likes to work with them.”

Eriksen joined Tottenham from Ajax in 2013 and went on to amass a total of 69 goals and 90 assists in 305 appearances.
