Amid Man United links, insight provided into Brentford's chances of keeping Christian Eriksen


A fresh insight into the future of soon-to-be free agent midfielder Christian Eriksen, and specifically the efforts of Brentford to prolong his stay at the club, has been provided on Sunday.

Danish international Eriksen, of course, secured a return to English football this past January.

After seeing his contract with Italian heavyweights Inter Milan terminated owing to Serie A's rules surrounding the use of implanted cardioverter defibrillators, a device which the 30-year-old was fitted with on the back of his frightening cardiac arrest at last summer's European Championships, Eriksen was afforded a fresh start by Premier League newcomers Brentford.

And to say that this is an opportunity which the Dane went on to take full advantage of would be putting it lightly.

Eriksen featured from the off in ten of Brentford's final 11 league outings, notching a goal and four assists along the way, proving beyond any measure of doubt that he remains more than capable of cutting his teeth at the top level of the game.

With such form, though, has come inevitable speculation surrounding Eriksen's future beyond the summer.

The 30-year-old's terms with Brentford are due to come to a close at the end of the month, with it currently unclear where he stands on the possibility of putting pen to paper on an extension in west London.

Such uncertainty, in turn, is understood to have seen a number of rival Premier League clubs enter the fray, chief amongst them Manchester United and Eriksen's former employers, Tottenham Hotspur.

As alluded to above, though, on Sunday, a fresh insight into the efforts of the transfer team at the Brentford Community Stadium to tie their midfield star down for the long term has been provided.

The info comes courtesy of transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, who confirms that the Bees have tabled a 'serious, important' contract offer to Eriksen.

The Dane himself remains undecided on his plans, amid ongoing interest from 'many clubs'.

A definitive conclusion to the saga, though, is expected imminently, with Eriksen set to choose his favoured landing spot 'in the coming days'.
