West Ham United allegedly could offer a contract to Brentford attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen in the summer.
That’s according to a report from 90 Min who claims that the mercurial 30-year-old’s signature could be highly sought-after at the end of the season.
Tottenham, Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, Everton and Newcastle allegedly could all challenge West Ham for Eriksen’s services according to 90 Min.
Brentford signed the ex-Tottenham ace on a free transfer in January after he was released by Inter Milan. 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 talented Dane is now thought to be on the Hammers’ radar…
West Ham considering offering Christian Eriksen a contract in the summer
According to 90 Min, the Hammers are looking into the possibility of signing the ex-Spurs man on a free transfer in the summer.
Eriksen is out of contract with Brentford at the end of the season.
The Bees will obviously want to keep hold of him, but may well have their work cut out.
The 30-year-old has bagged one goal and one assist in five games for Brentford so far (Transfermarkt).
Eriksen has proven during his five 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 on Sunday just how good he still is.
West Ham signing Eriksen on a free this summer would be a great deal in my opinion.
Whether the Hammers manage to beat off strong competition for his signature though, remains to be seen.
