West Ham United are allegedly keeping tabs on the Christian Eriksen situation over at Brentford.
That’s according to a report from 90 Min who claims that Tottenham are leading the race for the 30-year-old but that the Hammers are interested as well.

Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, Everton, Newcastle and Fulham are also though to be keen on signing Eriksen in the summer.
Eriksen has really impressed since moving to Brentford on a free transfer in January. He has played a key role for Thomas Frank’s side.
The 30-year-old has proven over the past couple of months that he still has the quality needed to make a difference in the Premier league.
And it it seems as though Eriksen’s performances for Brentford have piqued the interest of West Ham boss David Moyes…
West Ham keeping tabs on Christian Eriksen situation
90 Min reckon that whilst Tottenham are thought to be out in front in the race to sign the Denmark international, the Hammers are keen on his signature as well.
Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest whilst playing for Denmark at the Euros in the summer.
It wasn’t surprising that clubs were apprehensive about signing the 30-year-old. Brentford took the plunge though and he has gone on to be a huge hit with the Premier League side.
The 30-year-old has bagged one goal and two assists in six games for Brentford so far (Transfermarkt).
Eriksen has proven during his six appearances that he is still more than capable of dictating the tempo of the game at the very highest level.
The Dane might not be as energetic as he once was but he still has a brilliantly intelligent football brain. He showed against us a couple of weeks ago just how good he still is.
Bees boss Thomas Frank is a huge fan of Eriksen and recently labelled him as an ‘unbelievable’ player (The Evening Standard).
West Ham keeping an eye on the Christian Eriksen situation is good news. Signing him on a free this summer would be a great deal in my opinion.
