​Arsenal buoyed as Tottenham boss Mourinho votes against Eriksen return

Arsenal have been boosted by the news that Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho does not want Christian Eriksen.

The playmaker has struggled since joining Inter Milan last January. He is not in favour with manager Antonio Conte.

Spurs do not want him back, per Football Insider, as they have rejected the chance to sign him.

Arsenal are now the favourites to nab him in the winter.

Inter chief Giuseppe Marotta recently told Sky Italy: "If by January Eriksen has played little, he will himself ask to leave.

"We have to do it without any controversy from one side or the other, simply by considering it as a positive transfer move that has not been functioning for our technical-tactical needs."
