Christian Eriksen to part ways with Brentford

Christian Eriksen has decided to take on a new challenge by leaving Brentford when his contract expires later this month, per Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla.

The midfielder suffered a heart attack in Denmark’s opening 202 European Championship game against Finland, which put his career at risk.

However, the former Inter Milan star made a full recovery and got back on track at Brentford after signing a six-month deal in January.

Eriksen contributed one goal and four assists in 11 outings and helped the Bees steer clear of relegation danger in their first-top flight season in 74 years.

Unsurprisingly, Brentford manager Thomas Frank wants Eriksen to stay, although the Dane now looks set to depart west London with a host of teams reportedly seeking to acquire his services.

Aston Villa, Newcastle United and Liverpool have all been linked with Eriksen, while Antonio Conte is reportedly keen on a reunion at Tottenham Hotspur, having coached him at Inter.

A move to north London looks to be the most probable outcome as Erkisen revealed his desire to return to the Champions League while speaking about his future last month.

“I do not think that there are some football players who can just pick and choose between clubs because there are many criteria that come into play,” the 30-year-old told Swedish outlet Viaplay.

“I have different offers and options, which we are considering, and then we make a decision.

“I would love to play Champions League football again – I know how much fun it is, but it isn’t essential for me.”

With the summer window now officially open, Eriksen’s future will become clearer in the coming weeks when a host of Premier League transfers will be concluded.
