Newcastle United: Magpies ‘remain interested’ in Christian Eriksen

Newcastle United: Magpies ‘remain interested’ in Christian Eriksen -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United are in ongoing contact over the potential signing of Christian Eriksen this summer.

The Lowdown: Offer considered

It was reported last week that Eriksen is considering contract offers from a number of clubs in the Premier League, including the St. James’ Park outfit.

He is now officially a free agent after his short-term deal at Brentford expired, and so with no transfer fee to be paid, there is set to be a fierce battle for his signature, with Manchester United also hopeful they can secure a Bosman deal.

The Latest: Talks still open

Taking to Twitter, NewcastleWorld journalist Jordan Cronin has revealed that the North East club ‘remain interested’ in signing Eriksen, and the lines of contact between them and his representatives are still ‘very much open’:

“NUFC remain interested in signing Christian Eriksen. Lines of contact between the Magpies and Eriksen’s representatives remain very much open, despite reports of a two-horse race between MUFC and Brentford.”

Newcastle fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: No-brainer

If they can get it done, signing Eriksen on a free transfer is surely a no-brainer for the Tynesiders.

Should Newcastle sign Eriksen?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Dubbed ‘world class’ by Brentford manager Thomas Frank, his average rating of 7.37 in the Premier League last season was only bettered by Kieran Trippier (7.38) in Eddie Howe’s squad, while none of the Magpies squad averaged more shots, key passes or crosses per match than the 30-year-old.

Indeed, Eriksen reminded the footballing world what he is still capable of after returning from his scare at Euro 2020, and hailed as a ‘superstar‘ by former Bees teammate Pontus Jansson, signing him would no doubt be a real coup for the Magpies.
