Journalist Paul Brown of The Daily Star has just shared a significant West Ham United transfer update involving Brentford star Christian Eriksen.
The Lowdown: Eriksen courted…
The Denmark’s footballing legend looks set to be one of the big name free agents of this summer window with no sign of an extension being announced at the Brentford Community Stadium.
Eriksen appears to have his pick of suitors, including West Ham’s arch London rivals Tottenham among others across Europe.
The Irons have now been touted with a potential move to sign the 30-year-old for manager David Moyes as the Scotsman gears up for what will be an interesting 2022/2023 Premier League season.
The Latest: West Ham officials dispatched…
According to The Star, West Ham officials were dispatched midweek to run the rule over Eriksen and Denmark teammate Joakim Maehle ‘with a view to a double swoop’.
Which striker should West Ham sign?
The report goes on to state that the Hammers, and by extension club owners GSB, are ‘considering a bid’ for the ex-Inter Milan playmaker who has shone on a return to Premier League football.
The Verdict: Ideal?
Amid links with a return for Jesse Lingard, West Ham could land an ideal creative alternative in Eriksen going by his numbers over 2021/2022 and ‘superstar‘ status – as labelled by Bees teammate Pontus Jansson.
According to WhoScored, he finished last season as Thomas Frank’s best player by average match rating whilst also averaging their highest rate of key passes per 90 in the final third.
All of these facts point towards a potentially brilliant West Ham signing.
