Christian Eriksen could leave Inter this summer and rejoin former club Ajax, due to medical tests still pending.

According to today's print edition of Corriere dello Sport (via SempreInter), Eriksen wants to return to football, yet he could be denied the chance to do so in Italy due to pending medical tests, and therefore he would consider a return to Ajax.

Eriksen is still recovering from the cardiac arrest that he suffered in Denmark's opening game of UEFA Euro 2020 against Finland, with his football future still uncertain.

The medical tests carried our are expected to reveal whether or not he will be allowed to return to football for Inter, as the Italian FA currently do not allow players that have permanently fitted ICD (Implantable Cardioverter Defibrulator) devices to play due to health and safety reasons.

If Eriksen is forced to have a permanent device, then he could seek a move away from the Italian club in order to be able to continue his football career, and his former team Ajax could be a good destination for him.

Ajax already have Daley Blind in the squad that has a permanent ICD device, and Eriksen could be enticed to join him there given the care that the Dutch club is giving to the Netherlands international.

While it is still early to see whether the Danish midfielder will want to move away from Inter until more is revealed by the outcome of his medical tests, if he is eventually deemed ineligible to play in Italy, he would definitely consider a move to the club that left back in 2013 for Tottenham Hotspur.

Eriksen only recently returned to Inter's training camp, but he only did so to visit his teammates, with him still not training due to health concerns.

Eriksen played in 34 games in all competitions for Inter last season, and while he mainly came off the bench, he proved to be a good squad player, even bagging himself four goals.

He would be a very good addition to Ajax's squad, with the Dutch side wanting to add some experience to their relatively young team.
