Reliable journalist Charlie Eccleshare of The Athletic has shared a very promising update on Tottenham Hotspur‘s attempts to sign Brentford playmaker Christian Eriksen.
The Lowdown: Spurs eye Eriksen reunion…
Spurs head coach Antonio Conte is reliably believed to be eyeing a move for the 30-year-old, who could leave on a Bosman deal later this month.
The potential free agent and his representatives have apparently held ‘discussions’ with many clubs, including the Lilywhites, Leicester City, Manchester United and Brentford, according to Fabrizio Romano.
A man in demand, signing a player of Eriksen’s ilk for zero cost is seemingly an attractive proposition for many Premier League clubs who are looking to strengthen for 2022/23.
The Latest: Eccleshare makes promising Eriksen claim…
Speaking in a fan Q&A for The Athletic, Eccleshare has now shared a very promising update on Eriksen for Spurs supporters.
When asked how possible the signing of the Denmark star could be this window, the journalist replied: “Fairly likely. As The Athletic reported earlier this week, Manchester United have made an offer to sign Eriksen but we’re hearing that the midfielder would like to stay in London and that it’s a fight between re-signing with Brentford and re-joining Spurs.”
The Verdict: Potentially huge…
Brentford manager Thomas Frank perfectly summed up the quality of Eriksen by calling him a ‘world class’ player, and the coach’s verdict has been vindicated by some impressive statistics from the 30-year-old.

Other (tell us in the comments!)
According to WhoScored, the former Inter Milan star finished 2021/22 as the Bees’ best-performing player by average match rating, whilst also averaging more than twice as many key passes per game in the final third than any of his team-mates.
It’s little wonder that Conte has taken a keen interest, and we believe that Eriksen’s arrival in N17 would be a shrewd fourth addition of the transfer window for Tottenham, if they can get it done.
