Alasdair Gold has confirmed Tottenham have held internal talks about potentially signing Christian Eriksen on a free transfer, reiterating that the Brentford midfielder is keen to remain in London this summer. 

Eriksen has enjoyed a positive spell of form for the Bees, who signed him on a six-month deal in January after his collapse at Euro 2020 last summer. 

The 30-year-old has been directly involved in three goals in seven appearances for the side and netted twice on his return to the Denmark national team during March’s international break (Transfermarkt).

However, with his deal at the Brentford Community Stadium being so short, Eriksen’s future is a doubt with iNews revealing former employers Tottenham are keen on re-signing the playmaker at the end of his contract. 

And now Gold has hardened Spurs’ interest while also stating that Eriksen intends on remaining in the capital for the next stage of his career. 

He told his YouTube channel: “He would fit in there like a glove, in [Antonio] Conte’s 3-5-2, as he did with Inter Milan. I know Spurs have spoken, have had discussions about bringing him in as a free agent – as in amongst themselves.

“I think there’s going to be a queue of competition for him. I don’t think he left Spurs on the best of terms with the hierarchy. But, he does love the club. He wants to stay in London, from what I understand, with his family.”

Eriksen, who spent over six years at Spurs, left the club in January 2020 to link up with Conte at Inter Milan. 

He made over 300 appearances for the North London outfit in that span while being involved in more than 150 goals (Transfermarkt). 

Spurs Web Opinion 

Eriksen looks to be a target for Tottenham this summer and it isn’t too surprising considering the club has been missing a player like him since he left. 

Even with all the troubles he’s had to deal with over the last few months, he is still in good form which makes him a more than decent enough option to consider.
