EPL: Eriksen set to complete shock return this week

Denmark midfielder, Christian Eriksen, is close to sealing a sensational return deal to the Premier League this week, the UK Times reports.

Eriksen has not played football since suffering a cardiac arrest while representing his country against Finland at Euro 2020.

The 29-year-old is now a free agent after his contract at Inter Milan was terminated.

Eriksen cannot play in Italy with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator.
