Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Christian Eriksen is set to make a final decision regarding his next club in the coming hours or days.
It was initially reported that Tottenham were involved in a three-horse race for Eriksen’s signature along with Manchester United and Brentford (ESPN).
However, over the last week, multiple sources have revealed that Spurs have decided not to push ahead with a move for the Dane.
Football.London’s Alasdair Gold stated that Spurs are distancing themselves from the speculation linking them with the attacking midfielder, while The Sun’s Tom Barclay has claimed Antonio Conte is happy with the options he currently has in the middle of the park.
Sky Sports then reported on Tuesday that the race for Eriksen’s signature has come down to Brentford and Manchester United, with both clubs said to have offered contracts to the former Spurs man.
Romano has now taken to social media to reveal that Eriksen has ‘many proposals’ on the table and is now ‘getting closer’ to deciding his next destination.
The journalist reiterated that Tottenham are focused on other targets at the moment.

While an attacking midfielder is not a priority for Tottenham this summer, I would be surprised if we have not signed one before the end of the window.
The fact that Spurs have cooled their interest in Eriksen suggests that the club might have something else up their sleeve. I strongly suspect that Paratici will make a move for Weston McKennie late in the window.
