Brentford make contract offer to eriksen

According to The Athletic, Brentford have offered former Inter midfielder Christian Eriksen a six-month contract with the option to extend for a further year.

In December, Eriksen left Inter by mutual agreement as he is not allowed to play in Italy with a heart-starter implanted.

Italian authorities do not allow to play any contact sport with a heart defibrillator implanted as any contact or hit break the device.

The 29-year-old suffered cardiac arrest during Denmark’s Euro 2020 opener against Finland in June and can continue playing in other European leagues, such as the Premier League or the Eredivisie.

According to The Athletic, Brentford have offered him the chance to return to the Premier League on a six-month basis.

Only a few days ago, Eriksen shared his first video on the pitch since the last summer’ incident. He has been training with Odense and Chiasso FC over the last few weeks.

The Dane is determined to continue playing and his agent Martin Schoots has recently claimed that returning to English football would “feel like coming home” for the former Inter star.

Eriksen joined the Nerazzurri in a €20m deal from Tottenham in January 2020. He scored eight goals in 60 appearances with the Nerazzurri.
