And there’s plenty of interest in the playmaker – including from his former club Spurs – after his stunning comeback following his collapse at Euro 2020.

The Denmark international scored 69 goals and claimed 90 assists in 305 appearances for Spurs before moving to Inter Milan in January 2020, and Romano has revealed that they are one of three Premier League clubs interested in the 30-year-old.

Romano told CaughtOffside: “Christian Eriksen is extremely respectful towards Brentford who believed in him at a difficult time in his career. That is why the first club to have a meeting with their agent Martin Schoots will be Brentford at the end of the current season, also because there is no automatic contract extension clause until 2023.

“There are three Premier League clubs that are well informed about Eriksen’s situation: Tottenham and Leicester are keeping tabs on it, but have not yet made any proposals because everything will depend on Christian’s decisions, who asked to wait for the end of the season. The third club is still secret.”

Eriksen was forced to leave Inter Milan as Serie A regulations prevented the midfielder from playing for them after his cardiac arrest.

And Romano added that his departure is a big regret for the Italian giants.

“Inter Milan has the biggest regret: Simone Inzaghi and the entire board of the club wanted to keep him but for the Serie A rules it was impossible given the medical intervention that Eriksen had to undergo,” Romano said.

“We see now that that is Italian football’s loss, as Eriksen has been a joy to watch in the Premier League, and, whatever happens with him this summer, this remarkable comeback story will continue, most likely in England, next season.”
