Thomas Frank has claimed there is a ‘very good chance’ that Christian Eriksen will remain at Brentford next season.

In light of Eriksen’s impressive displays on his return to competitive action over the past few months, reports have indicated that Tottenham are keen on bringing the attacking midfielder back to North London this summer (90min).

Football.London’s Alasdair Gold confirmed on his YouTube channel recently that Spurs have held internal discussions about re-signing the former Ajax man, who has worked with Antonio Conte at Inter Milan.

The Denmark international admitted following Spurs’ 0-0 draw at the Brentford Community Stadium last week that the Lilywhites still hold a special place in his heart (Sky Sports).

The former Tottenham man is also rumoured to be on the radars of Newcastle United (Northern Echo), Manchester United (Daily Star) and Leicester City (Fabrizio Romano) but it has also been suggested Eriksen would be open to signing a longer-term contract with Brentford (Football Insider).

Frank has now revealed he remains positive that Eriksen will stay with the Bees beyond the end of his contract this summer.

Speaking after Brentford’s 3-0 defeat to Manchester United on Monday, the Danish coach told BBC Sport about Eriksen’s future: “I am always positive. I always believe we have a very good chance.

“I know he is happy here, he is enjoying his football. It is a decision that will be taken at the end of the season.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

Eriksen might feel a sense of loyalty to Brentford for giving him an opportunity but the 30-year-old will also be aware that he cannot afford to pass up on a chance to join a top side, given that he does not have a lot of time left in his career.

Part of Eriksen’s consideration might also have to do with being a guaranteed starter, which he is with the Bees. I am not sure he will be a mainstay in the starting eleven at Spurs as he does not naturally fit into Conte’s 3-4-3 formation.
