The Lowdown: Out of contract
Eriksen only signed a short-term contract at Brentford in the January transfer window over fears of his heart problems, leaving it to expire at the end of the month.
However, he has shown that he can still play consistently at the top level, scoring one goal and making a further four assists in 11 games in total in the Premier League (Transfermarkt).
Thus, a number of clubs in the top flight are expected to swarm for his signature this summer, once he becomes a free agent again.
The Latest: Everton move?
Writing in talkSPORT’s latest transfer notebook, Crook has revealed that while Brentford have now ‘offered’ a deal to Eriksen to become their highest-paid player, Goodison Park is another ‘potential destination’ for the Denmark international, as well as his former club Tottenham Hotspur:
“Brentford have offered him a deal to become their highest paid player.
“I know there’s interest from at least two Premier League clubs, we believe he wants to play in the Champions League.
“I was told that his family are quite settled in London, that would obviously link him to Tottenham, we’ve heard Everton as a potential destination.
“My hunch is that he will leave Brentford, although I know some journalists in Denmark have said that he will stay because he owe them a debt of gratitude.”
The Verdict: No-brainer
If Eriksen can carry on playing at a consistent level as he has shown, it is a no-brainer for the Merseyside club to sign him up on a free.
Nonetheless, his Premier League experience means that it should take little time for Eriksen to settle in, should he make the move to the Blues.
