Brentford are reportedly putting together an offer to bring Christian Eriksen back to the Premier League before the transfer deadline.
According to The Athletic, Brentford are already in talks with former Tottenham and Inter Milan playmaker Christian Eriksen. The Londoners are prepared to make a short-term offer to the Danish international, who is currently a free agent.
Christian Eriksen has endured an indifferent period since the end of UEFA Euro 2020. The Danish playmaker suffered an unfortunate cardiac arrest in the middle of the match against Finland. Even before emergency services could arrive, captain Simon Kjaer was instrumental in administering him CPR and possibly saving his life.
After the event, Eriksen was fitted with a pacemaker, which has brought things under control. Despite the life-threatening incident, the Danish playmaker is ready to get back on the pitch and remains confident of playing at the highest level once more.
Eriksen could not continue playing for Inter due to Serie A-mandated rules. Despite the club continually supporting the former Tottenham midfielder, they eventually agreed on terminating his contract, which cast massive doubts on Eriksen’s long-term prospects in the game.
The playmaker has since declared he is ready to compete again and hopes to play for Denmark at the 2022 Qatar World Cup. To do so, he needs to find a club where he can play regularly, and there have been some offers coming his way from England.
Manchester United had reportedly shown interest in him last January, although that was much before UEFA Euro 2020 even began. But there could be offers coming Eriksen’s way before the end of the current window.
Brentford are the club that have reportedly opened talks with the ex-Tottenham playmaker with the idea of a move. While Serie A rules do not apply in the Premier League, this could open up the chance for Eriksen to return to action. Brentford are also chasing other targets in this window apart from Eriksen to strengthen their options for the rest of the season.
The Bees are expected to make an offer to sign him until the end of the season, while reports suggest an additional option for a year could also be included. However, Brentford will likely conduct multiple tests to monitor his health before deciding on a firm offer.
A move back to the Premier League could be good for Eriksen, who has the quality to improve the Brentford attack. Although things are complicated with his health issues, we could well see the former Tottenham star returning to action soon.
