Christian Eriksen – Brentford have now made an offer, why not Newcastle United?

Christian Eriksen has been offered a deal by Brentford.

The Athletic reporting that the Premier League club have offered the Danish star an initial six month contract, with the option to extend it for a further year.

My question is, why aren’t Newcastle United making a move?

In my opinion they should be all over this, considering the sheer lack of quality in terms of creativity and ideas in pretty much the entire NUFC squad, with the exception of Allan Saint-Maximin.

It looks a situation where the risks are very low but the potential returns are massive.

An excellent creative player who if getting even back to anywhere remotely close to his best, would be a massive positive for Newcastle in this relegation battle. In his last full season (2018/19) in England, before moving to Inter, Christian Eriksen started 30 Premier League games for Tottenham and was directly involved in 20 PL goals, scoring eight and getting twelve assists.

The Athletic report that no agreement has been reached so far and talks are continuing, so still time for Newcastle United to act.

Christian Eriksen is now a free agent after reaching an agreement with former club Inter Milan in December to terminate his contract.

It is seven months now since the mdifielder suffered a cardiac arrest during Denmark’s European Championship game against Finland on June 12.

The Athletic state that Christian Eriksen is desperate to play again and wants to be part of Denmark’s squad for the Qatar World Cup in November and December, whilst the player’s agent has confirmed that Eriksen would welcome a return to the Premier League.

Christian Eriksen has been training with his old Danish club Odense Boldklub in preparation for a return hopefully to first team football, somewhere, soon.
