Brentford have been in talks with the midfielder for several weeks; He is understood to feel settled in London again and comfortable at the club; However, Eriksen has said he wants to play in the Champions League again and is interested in comments made by Spurs boss Antonio Conte.
Brentford have offered Christian Eriksen a long-term contract and are now waiting for his reply.
The Bees have been in talks with the Denmark international for several weeks about extending his successful spell in West London.
Eriksen made his return to football with them following cardiac arrest last year by signing a short-term deal from January until the end of the season.
He is understood to feel settled in London again and comfortable at the club, where he is surrounded by fellow Danes including head coach Thomas Frank.
However, Eriksen has said he wants to play in the Champions League again and has been intrigued by the comments of Tottenham boss Antonio Conte about potentially being welcomed back at the club.
It is questionable whether Eriksen has yet returned to the level required to get into the Italian’s first VI and Spurs have already made a commitment to Rodrigo Bentancur, who fills the same position in Conte’s system.
Eriksen would undoubtedly be an asset to the squad but, at 30-years-old and following his ordeal, he wants to play regular games, which Brentford can deliver for him.
Other clubs are interested but Brentford hope this and the solid roots he has put down in London will give them the edge in the race.
Analysis: What position should Brentford sign?
One of the stories of the season was Eriksen’s return to professional football. And there was no looking back when he took to the field. Brentford picked up more wins (seven) in the 10 games he started than in the 28 games he did not start (six) and their goal ratio doubled.
Eriksen ranked third in the division for chances created and passes into the final third since his first start on March 5. Whether he stays or leaves, Brentford need to find another player who can link defence and attack.
