CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN could reportedly make an emotional return to Ajax – with him currently banned from playing for Inter Milan.
The midfielder, 30, collapsed during Denmark’s match against Finland at Euro 2020 and was rushed to hospital.
He was subsequently fitted with an ICD (Implantable cardioverter defibrillator) to monitor his heart rhythm – it can also send shocks to the heart if necessary.
But the Italian FA have ruled Eriksen’s fitness cannot rely on a ICD heart-starter, and therefore he is not allowed to play in Serie A.
That could lead to a sensational move back to Ajax, who he played for between 2010-13.
Corriere dello Sport reports that Eriksen is ‘tempted’ by a return to the Dutch giants.
It is believed he would be allowed to play in Holland with the device fitted.
Ajax star Daley Blind – who has also been fitted with an ICD – currently plays.

Blind collapsed during a match last year with his ICD going off, but started to feel better quickly as soon as he was subbed off – he even avoided hospital.
Inter Milan have released a statement on his current situation.
It reads: “With reference to the registration rights of the player Eriksen it should be noted that following a serious injury which occurred during the European Championship in June 2021, the player has been temporarily inhibited by the Italian medical authority from sporting activity in the current season.
“Although the current conditions of the player don’t meet the requirements of achieving sporting fitness in Italy, the same could instead be achieved in other countries where the player could resume competitive activity.”
