Christian Eriksen will have his Inter Milan contract terminated by mutual consent, according to BBC Sport.
The former Tottenham midfielder collapsed on the pitch during a match at the European Championships in the summer and has been recovering ever since.
However, he will be unable to play for Inter again in Serie A due to the Italian top-flight’s rules on footballers playing with a fitted defibrillator.
That’s according to BBC Sport, who say Inter and Eriksen have now agreed to mutually terminate his contract, which had been set to run until the summer of 2024.
Eriken joined Inter from Spurs in January 2020 having made over 300 appearances in England – but is there a chance he will return to north London?
Tottenham could certainly do with some more creativity in midfield, with Giovani Lo Celso, Dele Alli and Tanguy Ndombele all struggling for form.
If any of those attacking midfielders leave in January, Eriksen would be the ideal replacement.
Whether he is in the right condition – given his heart issues – to play for an ultra-fit Antonio Conte side is up for debate, but it’s an intriguing prospect.
