Brentford in talks to bring Eriksen back to the Premier League
Brentford FC are in talks with Christian Eriksen over a return to the Premier League.
According to The Athletic, Brentford have offered the 29-year-old a six-month deal with the option to extend for a further year. Eriksen is a free agent after coming to an agreement with former club Inter Milan to terminate his contract last month.
He suffered a cardiac arrest during Denmark’s European Championship game against Finland on June 12.
Earlier this month, Eriksen stated his ambition to resume his professional career, saying he was targeting a place in Denmark’s squad for the Qatar World Cup later this year. His agent, Martin Schoots, later said that returning to English football would “feel like coming home”.
Eriksen previously played for Tottenham Hotspur between 2013 and 2020, making over 300 appearances for the north London side.
After being unable to play for Inter due to Serie A’s medical rules about implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD), Eriksen was training with Danish club Odense Boldklub — who he played for between 2005 and 2008.
