Christian Eriksen has revealed that he has received an offer from other clubs as he contemplates his future after joining Brentford in January.
The 30-year-old has returned to professional football after suffering a heart attack at Euro 2020 last year. He played for the Bees who are now sitting in 13th place in the Premier League, working well with Ivan Toney and Bryan Mbeumo.
However, his good deeds have attracted a lot of attention. former club Tottenham are hoping to re-sign Denmark international if manager Antonio Conte stays at the club and qualifies for the UEFA Champions League.
Speaking to Viaplay, Eriksen said: “I don’t think there are footballers who can choose between clubs because there are so many things to follow. There are many clubs that need to see a person’s path before that. it happens.
“I have different offers and options, which we consider, and then we decide. I would love to play UEFA Champions League football again. I know how fun it is, but it doesn’t matter to me.”
Brentford have struggled to persuade Eriksen to sign a six-month extension to his contract. The Denmark midfielder has spent seven years with Spurs and was part of Conte’s Inter-20 Serie A team that won the 2020/21 Serie A title.
Bees manager Thomas Frank still hopes he will stay on the team, recently saying: “I always believe we have a great opportunity. I know he’s happy here, he enjoys his football. It’s a decision to be made at the end of the season.”
