A transfer tease has emerged over the future of Newcastle United target Christian Eriksen as the summer window gets underway…
Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that the Magpies target will be deciding on his next club in the imminent future.
He Tweeted: “Brentford have submitted a serious, important personal terms offer to Christian Eriksen – but the player is considering his options with many clubs interested. Eriksen will make his decision on the future club in the coming days.”
Jacque Talbot recently reported that Newcastle boss Eddie Howe was set for talks with the Denmark international over a move to St. James’ Park, with the club ready to challenge the Bees for his signature.
Toon supporters will now be nervously awaiting the player’s decision as they will surely be keen to see him playing in black and white next season.
He is a proven Premier League performer who would come in and provide Howe’s team with a massive lift in terms of creativity.
The 30-year-old made an astounding return to England in January, months on from suffering a cardiac arrest in the European Championships, and was sublime for Brentford.
In 11 top-flight outings, Eriksen scored one goal and provided four assists as he created an eye-catching 2.8 chances per match. This shows that he was creating openings for his teammates at a phenomenal rate, given that Allan Saint-Maximin only managed half of that return (1.4 per game) for the Magpies.
At his best, the Dane was regarded as one of the best in the world with ex-Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter saying: “He is an unbelievable player — a world-class player — he deserves all the credit he gets in the Premier League and international-wise.
“We’re going to have to stop him from trying to do what he does, but it is important not to just concentrate on him. To concentrate on ourselves is probably the most important thing and then try to take care of them.”
The 30-year-old has played in eight separate Premier League seasons and has not averaged a SofaScore rating lower than 6.84 in the six campaigns they have data available for.
In 236 outings in the English top-flight, Eriksen has plundered 52 goals and 71 assists for Tottenham and Brentford combined. He knows exactly what it takes to make a big impact in the division and that is why he would be an excellent signing for the Toon.
Therefore, Newcastle supporters will now be nervous as they wait to hear who the midfielder has decided to join ahead of next season.
