Brentford midfielder Christian Eriksen is thought to be keen on remaining in London, which could serve as a boost for Tottenham amidst their alleged interest in a transfer this summer, according to Football.London. 

Eriksen has rekindled his career with the Bees, who took a plunge on signing the then-free-agent in January after he suffered a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 with Denmark last summer. 

Since being dropped into the starting line-up by compatriot Thomas Frank, Brentford have shot up the Premier League table with the 30-year-old scoring once and providing two assists in that time (Transfermarkt). 

With Eriksen’s current deal set to run until the end of the season, his displays in West London have caught the attention of former employers Spurs, who could look to shape up a move to acquire him on a free transfer this summer (90min).

And Football.London now claim that, while his departure from the club in 2020 was slightly strenuous, he adored his time in N17 and crucially wants to keep London as his base for the next part of his career. 

Eriksen previously signalled his intentions to start a new challenge away from Tottenham after the club’s Champions League final defeat to Liverpool in 2019 (The Guardian), and parted ways to join Inter Milan six months later.

He made over 300 appearances for the Lilywhites while being involved in 159 goals in a tenure lasting seven years (Transfermarkt). 

Spurs Web Opinion 

There will be plenty of options on the table for Eriksen this summer given how well he has done on his return. 

Obviously, he will discuss his plans with Brentford first as they were the ones that gave him a chance, but Spurs will continue to be involved in the conversation too. 

They could really use a creative spark from midfield and he would definitely be a good option to bring in – especially as a free transfer.
