After his terrifying cardiac attack at Euro 2020, which resulted in him being equipped with an ICD, there were fears that the 30-year-playing old’s career was finished.
After being forced to leave Inter Milan, Eriksen regained his health with Erik ten Hag’s Ajax team before signing a short-term contract with Brentford in the Premier League.
Eriksen swiftly established himself as a regular for the Bees, scoring one goal and providing four assists in 11 Premier League appearances, although his contract with Thomas Frank’s club expires at the end of the month.
Following his incredible comeback and strong start to life back with the Danish national team, the former Tottenham Hotspur man is thought to have piqued the interest of numerous big clubs.
Eriksen was picked in the first XI for the trip to Austria after playing the entire 90 minutes in his side’s 2-1 win over world champions France last week.
Before the match in League A Group 1, FA middleman Paul O’Keefe revealed a huge number of clubs with scouts in attendance, including Man United, who are reportedly interested in signing the playmaker.
Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United, and Borussia Dortmund all sent delegations to watch Denmark win 2-1, with Eriksen assisting on Jens Stryger Larsen’s game-winning goal.
Man United have reportedly entered the competition to capture Eriksen this summer, according to a recent report, but Brentford manager Frank is not given up hope of a permanent deal.
“I know I’m hopeful,” Frank told reporters last month, “but I also picked up the phone and said, ‘Hey, do you want to come to Brentford?'”
“No one had considered that six months ago.” I wish I could say 100%, but I believe there is a decent chance he will be able to wear the Brentford shirt.
“Either he signs with us, and everyone is delighted, and the fans erect a statue of him outside the stadium in two or three years, or he goes to a higher level, and fans praise him, and we all say, ‘Thank you for this time, go onward,'” he said.
Eriksen is also thought to be interested in returning to Tottenham, where he scored 69 goals and assisted on another 90 in 305 appearances between 2013 and 2020.
In 237 Premier League appearances, the former Ajax man has 52 goals and 71 assists, although he is yet to make a final choice on his future.
Man United have already lost two playmakers to free transfers in Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata, as well as Lee Grant, Edinson Cavani, Nemanja Matic, and Paul Pogba.
