Christian Eriksen has admitted that he does not know which club he will be playing for next season.

On the back of his impressive showing for Brentford in the second half of the 2021/22 campaign, Eriksen is thought to be generating interest from the likes of Tottenham, Everton and Manchester United (Mirror).

West Ham United have also reprotedly entered the race for the midfielder after sending scouts to watch him in action in the Nations League this month (Daily Star).

Danish journalist Carsten Werge predicted earlier this month that the 30-year-old will either pen a long-term contract with Brentford or complete an emotional return to Spurs (Sky Sports).

Fabrizio Romano claimed on Sunday that the former Tottenham man is expected to make a decision on his future in the ‘coming days’.

However, Eriksen has now said that his future remains up in the air, admitting that he is finding it ‘hard’ to decide who to join.

He told Danish publication BT: “I don’t know why it’s hard to make a decision. Maybe because you need that last thing in order to find out what you want. It’s really hard to say what the outcome will be.

“Sometimes it can happen fast, other times it’s slow. You are not always a master of your own faith. It also depends what the possibilities are in terms of clubs. And then you have to make a decision from that. For me it’s about making the right decision.”

When asked what he will be doing over the coming days, the Denmark international said: “I’m going on holiday and will be relaxing a bit. We are gonna go swimming, get a little tan and eat some nice food. 

“I’ll have my cellphone turned on. I know my agent well enough that he will call me if anything interesting comes along, and if not, he won’t call me.”

Spurs Web Opinion

While remaining in London could be a crucial factor for Eriksen, the midfielder will also likely want to ensure he gets regular game time. That is far more likely at West Ham or Brentford than at Spurs.

Besides, if the 30-year-old had his heart set on a move to Tottenham, the move would have likely progressed already. The fact that he is assessing other options suggests that he has some reservations about returning to the club.
