Brentford are desperate to persuade star midfielder Christian Eriksen to commit his future to the club beyond the end of the season, but the Bees face stiff competition from other clubs.

According to 90min, the West Londoners are keen on making the midfielder’s initial six-month deal a long term one, however the Dane’s former club Tottenham are also considering making a move to re-sign the player.

Eriksen joined Brentford in January, less than nine months after suffering a cardiac arrest while on international duty with Denmark at Euro 2020.

The midfielder had departed former club Inter Milan shortly after the incident, as the defibrillator he has implanted into his chest breaches Serie A rules, but Brentford were quick to snap him up.

The 30-year-old has impressed since returning to the capital, with the Bees having won all four of the Premier League matches that he is started, and he was particularly impressive in their 4-1 thrashing of West London rivals Chelsea a fortnight ago.

His current manager, Thomas Frank, has insisted that the midfielder’s future will not be sorted out until the end of the season, although he has also stated that it is ‘realistic’ to expect him to remain with the club.

Spurs, meanwhile, have other ideas, and are named as one of several clubs who are considering making an offer to the player, who will be available for free in the summer if he does not choose to extend his stay with Brentford.

Eriksen played more than 300 games for the North London side, before departing in 2020.

The Danish international scored his first Bees goal in the victory over Chelsea, and has played the full 90 minutes in each of their past four matches.

Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, Everton, Newcastle and West Ham are named as the other top flight clubs who are considering an offer for Eriksen, while Fulham, who are on the verge of sealing a return to the Premier League, are also interested.

There is also interest in the player from abroad, however the report staters that the player’s intention is understood to be remaining in England.
