Brentford midfielder Christian Eriksen faced former side Tottenham on Saturday, as the two sides played out a 0-0 draw that could have huge implications for Spurs’ top four bid. 

The Bees performed well in what could have been a tricky match, and Spurs now sit fifth, behind rivals Arsenal, in the race to secure a top four finish.

The Lilywhites have been linked with a move for ex-midfielder Eriksen, although current side Brentford are also keen to keep hold of the player.

Bees boss Thomas Frank recently insisted that the player’s future will not be decided until the end of the season, although Spurs are reportedly already working on agreeing a deal with the player.

The 30-year-old’s six-month deal with Brentford comes to an end in the summer, and a number of clubs are likely to be interested in the former Inter Milan man.

Now, it appears that incoming Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag is keen on securing a move for the player.

As per The Daily Star, the Dutchman is a keen admirer of Eriksen and will push to secure a move for the playmaker when he arrives in England.

The midfielder spent time training with Ajax, Ten Hag’s current side, while recovering from a cardiac arrest last year, and the 52-year-old now believes that he would be the perfect candidate kickstart his Red Devils revival.

The report says that the Danish international impressed not only Ten Hag with his performances in training, but also several of the Dutch side’s players.

The Ajax boss is quietly confident of being able to persuade Eriksen to join him in Manchester.

Spurs remain interested in the player, though, with Antonio Conte keen on adding a player to his squad with whom he won the Serie A title last term.
