Brentford Are In Talks With Christian Eriksen Over Sensational Return To Premier League
The 29-year-old hasn't played a minute of professional football since suffering a cardiac arrest during last summer's Euro 2020 clash against Finland at Copenhagen’s Parken Stadium.
In a terrifying sequence of events, Eriksen received life-saving treatment on the pitch before being taken to hospital for further treatment. In a recent TV interview, he revealed that he “died for five minutes” during that incident in June.

He contributed 69 goals and 90 assists across 305 appearances for the North London side during a seven year stay.
I'd genuinely be happy to see Eriksen sign for Brentford.— Rahman osman (@iamrahmanosman) January 17, 2022
Top man and a really nice fella who deserves the best things of this world.
Earlier this month, Eriksen revealed his still hopes to play for Denmark at the World Cup in Qatar later this year.
“My goal is to play in the World Cup in Qatar. I want to play,” he told Danish outlet DR.
“That's been my mindset all along. It's a goal, a dream. Whether I'll be picked is another thing. But it's my dream to come back.
“I'm sure I can come back because I don't feel any different.
“Physically, I'm back in top shape. That's been my goal and it's still some time away, so until then I'm just going to play football and prove that I'm back at the same level.”
It’s been a while.— Christian Eriksen (@ChrisEriksen8) January 4, 2022
I hope this video explains how I feel towards all the messages, letters, mails, flowers, thoughts and everything else I’ve got!
