Newcastle linked with free agent move for Premier League playmaker keen to stay in England

According to 90min, Newcastle are one of several Premier League clubs showing interest in Brentford star Christian Eriksen as his six-month deal is set to expire.

They report that ourselves, Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, Everton and West Ham are al keen to sign the Danish international, along with Championship side Fulham who have almost secured promotion.

Eriksen, 30, joined Brentford on 31st January on a short-term contract following his release from Inter Milan in the summer.

The former Spurs star had his contract terminated with the Italian side due to an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator he had fitted after suffering from a cardiac arrest at EURO 2020.

Despite this, the Serie A winner has shown he can still compete at the highest level and has been crucial in steering Brentford away from a relegation fight.

The Bees were in freefall prior to Eriksen’s arrival – they had lost eight of their last 10 games – but have won all four games when he’s started, seeing him bag a goal and an assist in that time.

While there have been rumours from abroad, Eriksen is said to favour a move to another English side and won’t demand the same six-figure salary he had at Tottenham and Inter.

  1. Eriksen is a fine player and I’m sure he’d add invaluable class and experience to our squad/team. But he is knocking on a bit. I’d prefer to see us bring Mikel Merino back and try to sign Calvin Phillips and Conor Gallagher. Two new strikers ,two centre backs and a goalkeeper,preferably Dean Henderson,would just about do it. It may take another two or three windows to get it all done, but thanks to PIF, it’s no longer just a dream. 👍🏻🥳🤫

  2. Aye – now that we are the wealthiest club on the planet, free transfers is definitely the way to go to get us into Europe.
