Christian Eriksen has admitted he is unsure about his next move amid reports of the Danish midfielder turning down a new contract at Brentford.

Eriksen spent the second half of last season with Brentford, making his return to football after suffering a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 and leaving Inter Milan.

The 30-year-old exceeded expectations in west London, scoring one goal and recording four assists in 11 matches for Brentford to help them secure a comfortable 13th-placed finish. In fact, only Kevin De Bruyne (42) and Martin Odegaard (38) created more chances than Eriksen’s 30 in the Premier League between the Dane’s Brentford debut and the end of the campaign.

Eriksen’s efforts for Brentford also saw him return to the Danish national team and the midfielder scored in his first two games back, netting against Netherlands and then Serbia. He continued with the team in the Nations League in June and has helped Denmark lead Group A1 after four games, ahead of Croatia, Austria and France.

With Denmark’s international window over, Eriksen is set to go on holiday and will undoubtedly want to clear his mind of anything football-related for a few weeks. But there still remains the question of his future, with the Dane initially signing a six-month deal with Brentford.

According to reports, Eriksen has turned down a new contract at Brentford and is being linked with a return to Tottenham Hotspur – 18 months after leaving them for Inter Milan.

And while some players refuse to get involved in transfer rumours despite having already made their decision, it appears Eriksen is yet to make up his mind.

“I don’t know why it’s hard to make a decision,” he told Danish publication BT.

“Maybe because you need that last thing in order to find out what you want. It’s really hard to say what the outcome will be.

“Sometimes it can happen fast, other times it’s slow. You are not always a master of your own faith.

“It also depends what the possibilities are in terms of clubs. And then you have to make a decision from that. For me it’s about making the right decision.”
