Christian Eriksen has admitted that he is keeping his options open over his footballing future ahead of the summer.

The 30-year-old joined Brentford on a free transfer in January just seven months after suffering a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 having collapsed on the field of play during Denmark’s opening match of the tournament.

Eriksen has been linked with a return to Tottenham Hotspur at the end of the season when he will become a free agent (Football.London).

Brentford are keen to get the playmaker to put pen to paper on a contract extension, however, Eriksen admits that he is happy to be back playing football and will make the best decision for him as a professional, but also for his family.

Football.London‘s Alasdair Gold revealed earlier this week that it is thought that the Dane wishes to remain in London.

He told Sky Sports: “When I signed here in January, it was actually coming back and showing I was a football player and could play football. There was also the six months of a test trial. By now, it feels good,”

“But for the future, I don’t know. I’m just enjoying the moment, every game is really fun to play in. what happens in the summer will be a decision for me as a footballer and as a family man.

“Everything is open. I’ve been taken good care of at Brentford, they’ve really shown me a lot of love and trying to repay them for what they’ve showed me. Every option is open, either at Brentford or anywhere else.”

Despite Eriksen having left Spurs under something of a cloud following a poor last twelve months before joining Inter Milan, it is hard to question the impact he had on the side during the Pochettino era.

He has proven during his stint at Brentford that he is more than capable of still being a top-flight footballer and possesses the creative spark which Spurs are desperately missing on times.
