Lyall Thomas has explained Brentford’s interest in signing former Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen is only at a stage of inquiry at present. 

The Bees have reportedly offered the Denmark international a short-term contract, who has not played since suffering a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 in June. 

Eriksen is currently a free agent after agreeing to mutually terminate his contract with Inter Milan last month. 

The 29-year-old has had an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) fitted since last summer’s incident, but Italian law states he cannot continue playing in Serie A until the device is removed. 

Eriksen has since spent time training with Danish outfit Odense Boldklub to maintain his fitness during his search for another club, in the hope of making a remarkable bid to play for Denmark at the World Cup in Qatar later this year. 

However, Sky Sports reporter Thomas has maintained that Brentford’s current interest in Eriksen is merely at a ‘conversation’ stage and nothing advanced has happened as of yet. 

He said: “On Eriksen; Brentford are among a number of clubs interested Christian Eriksen but it’s not gone further than an inquiry and conversation with his representatives so far.”

Spurs Web Opinion 

Brentford could be securing a coup in the form of Eriksen. It is incredible that he is able, but also keen to continue his career after the scary incident in the summer. But it seems as if it is safe for him to resume his career which is amazing news.
