Brentford Are In Talks With Christian Eriksen Over Sensational Return To Premier League

Brentford are trying to secure a deal to bring Christian Eriksen back to the Premier League on a six-month contract with the option to extend for a further year, according to reports.

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.

Now, the talented midfielder, who is currently a free agent after leaving Inter Milan, is preparing to lace up his boots again and according to The Athletic, Thomas Frank's Brentford are keen.

Eriksen's agent Martin Schoots has previously claimed that a return to England would "feel like coming home".

And it seems there are plenty of Premier League suitors in regards to a move. Newcastle, Everton, Leicester, West Ham and former club Spurs have all been linked with Eriksen's signature.

He contributed 69 goals and 90 assists across 305 appearances for the North London side during a seven year stay.

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.”
