Christian Eriksen has admitted that while he would love to play Champions League football, that is not essential for him in choosing where to play next season.

Eriksen has out-performed expectations since returning to competitive football and has completely transformed the Brentford side.

Unsurprisingly, many clubs across the Premier League, including Spurs (90min), are reportedly interested in singing the Dane when his six-month contract at the Brentford Community Stadium runs out.

The likes of Newcastle United (Northern Echo), Manchester United (Daily Star) and Leicester City (Fabrizio Romano) have been credited with an interest in the former Tottenham man.

The Telegraph reported earlier this month that despite interest from Spurs, Eriksen views a return to North London as a ‘risk’ and is considering signing a longer-term contract with Brentford.

The Bees boss Thomas Frank has claimed there is ‘a very good chance’ that the attacking midfielder will remain at the club next season (BBC Sport).

Eriksen has now admitted that he has no shortage of options to choose from this summer.

He told Viaplay: “I do not think that there are some football players who can just pick and choose between clubs, because there are many criteria that come into play. There are also many clubs that need to see one’s path before that happens.

“I have different offers and options, which we are considering, and then we make a decision. I would love to play Champions League football again. I know how much fun it is, but it isn’t essential for me.”

Spurs Web Opinion

I would be surprised if Eriksen decided to sign for Spurs as he would not be an automatic starter for us. I do not see the Dane as being a natural fit in Conte’s preferred 3-4-3 formation. 

I expect Eriksen to speak to the Italian to potentially seek assurances regarding a regular place in the starting eleven but I do not expect the Spurs boss to give him such an assurance.
