Christian Eriksen’s encouraging return to form at Brentford has reportedly piqued the interest of Tottenham, who hope to reunite with him next season.
After a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 last summer, Eriksen signed a short-term deal with the Bees in January and has since produced a string of stunning performances under Thomas Frank.
He scored in their sensational 4-1 victory over west London rivals Chelsea last weekend, as well as providing an assist in a 2-0 win over Burnley earlier in the season.
Brentford are eager to keep the Denmark midfielder beyond the summer after his return was one of the season’s most heartening stories.
Before moving to Inter Milan, Eriksen spent six and a half years at Tottenham, scoring 69 goals and providing 90 assists for the north London club in 305 outings.
Antonio Conte started working with him at Inter, and now Spurs are considering resigning the defender in the summer and reuniting him with the coach.
Eriksen played 60 times for the San Siro during his two-year stint with Antonio Conte. He scored eight goals and set up three more, paving the way for his team to win the Serie A title in 2020/21.
Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) devices are forbidden in Italian football to prevent players from having a similar event on the pitch following their collapse at the European Championships.
Since no European leagues prohibit ICD devices, Eriksen left Inter in October and signed for Brentford three months later.
Spurs are the most likely destination for Conte to reunite with his former player this summer, but Manchester United and Newcastle are rumored to be interested as well.
In the midst of his sensational form under Frank, Brentford are not giving up hope of signing him to a long-term contract.
