Christian Eriksen has made the decision not to extend his stay at Brentford, according to Italian football journalist Alfredo Pedulla.
Brentford have offered the Dane a new long-term contract to continue his career at Thomas Frank’s side and have been awaiting a decision (Sky Sports).
Eriksen made 11 top flight appearances for the Bees after joining in January, helping the club move away from a relegation battle to finish in thirteenth place in their first campaign in the Premier League (transfermarkt).
Pedulla claims that Eriksen has decided to look elsewhere for his next challenge in his career.
Fabrizio Romano had previously claimed that both Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City also hold an interest in the playmaker (Que Golazo Podcast), with Eriksen having admitted that he would ‘love’ to play in the Champions League (Viaplay).
Tottenham secured a return to European football’s most prestigious club competition at the end of last season, having beaten rivals Arsenal to a fourth place finish in the Premier League table.
A return to Tottenham would be a brilliant move for Eriksen who would get the opportunity to play European football once again while also having the emotional lure of playing for his old club once more.
Aside from Harry Kane, Spurs have struggled on the creative front since the Dane departed for Inter Milan and his return would allow Kane to focus on putting the ball in the back of the net.
