Christian Eriksen could make a sensational return to England soon, but he won’t be rejoining Tottenham, according to reports.
On Monday, The Athletic reported that Brentford have offered Eriksen a six-month contract with the option extend by a further year.
It is believed Brentford’s Danish contingent could convince Eriksen to continue his recovery at the Community Stadium, just months after the midfielder was fitted with a defibrillator.
Meanwhile, The Times claims Newcastle United and Leicester City are also interested in Eriksen – but a return to Spurs is said to be unlikely.
The Times’ story also claims Brentford have been in talks with the Dane for six weeks, which suggests a deal could indeed be close.
Remarkably, Fulham of the Championship are also said to be keen on signing free agent Eriksen, according to Football League World.
Surely the 29-year-old will choose a Premier League club over Fulham, unless the Cottagers can somehow offer him a more enticing financial package.
It’s a shame an emotional reunion with Tottenham doesn’t appear to be on the cards, but in truth it will be great to see Eriksen back on the pitch regardless of the club he plays for.
